  • Preheat your oven to 180°C (356°F). Line an 8x8" square pan with parchment paper and set it aside.
  • Finely chop the chocolate and add it to a heat-resistant bowl along with the vegan butter. Place the bowl on top of a saucepan that is about ¼ ways filled with simmering water (bain-marie). Stir the chocolate and butter with a rubber spatula every so often to melt it evenly.
  • Once melted, add the flax eggs, light brown sugar, light muscovado sugar, vanilla extract, and almond milk to the bowl with the melted chocolate and butter. Mix well to combine.
  • In a separate large bowl, whisk together the ground almonds, cocoa powder, baking powder, and sea salt. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients and use a spatula to fold everything together until you have a smooth batter. Be careful not to over-mix.
  • Gently spread the brownie batter into the base of the tin. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top (if using).
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes. To check they're ready, insert a toothpick or skewer, it should come out with a few crumbs on it but not have a tonne of batter.
  • Allow the brownies to cool completely for 30 minutes to an hour before cutting them into servings.


  • Flax eggs: To make 2 flax eggs simply mix 2 tablespoons milled flaxseed with 5 tablespoons water, stir and allow to sit for 5 minutes. This will act as a binding agent for the ingredients.
