These Vegan Brownies are so Easy, Extra Fudgy and just BOMB, if I’m honest!
While I don’t bake brownies often, whenever I do, I’m always hooked. Haha.
These little things are just so good. YUM.
If you’re into vegan brownies, I so recommend trying my Vegan Chewy, Fudge Avocado Walnut Brownies which are the perfect sweet treat that is full of chocolatey goodness!
Then there are these Vegan Fudge Zucchini Brownies with Pistachio which have the best taste and texture that will automatically keep you on your toes and thrilled after every gooey bite.
With September being officially here and the Fall season just ahead, I’ve been excited to share Fall recipes. Personally, I’m so obsessed with warm spices and that warm feeling that you get when you drink a cup of pumpkin latte or chai tea. Just so good.
Honestly, brownies somehow work perfectly into the equation as well, although you can eat these year-round.
I just think that brownies are a timeless piece. Don’t you?
OK, so let me just say that I’ve seen some pretty good brownie box mixes that I would definitely try if I were pinched for time or just didn’t feel like whipping it from scratch myself. Bob’s Red Mill has a really great option.
However, when it comes to brownies, I truly enjoy the gooeyness that comes from making them homemade. Like most things homemade, you are able to adjust and personalize your brownies to how you like them. Whether that means adding veggies, nuts, extra chocolate, making them more chewy or more fudgy—whatever!
Therefore, I’ll always be #TeamHomemade.
Cocoa Powder: The easiest and best way to get that intense chocolate flavor if desired. However, if you’d like, you can always substitute with CaoCao powder.
Flaxseed Meal: Ground flaxseeds are super healthy and are a great egg substitute. They are packed with fiber, protein, and potent antioxidants. Besides their health benefits, this stuff holds together your vegan baking treats very well.
Vegan Butter: While you can use oil for this recipe, I chose to use vegan butter and it was amazing. This created a nice, light ‘buttery’ flavor, which is potent in a regular brownie bite. Plus, using vegan butter is a great option for those who enjoy an oil-free recipe.
Chocolate Chips: What is there more to say? Chocolate chips are the best part of these brownies. They create that delicious melt-in-your-mouth effect and all of that gooeyness. For a smaller chocolate bite, you can use Enjoy Life’s Mini Vegan Chocolate Chips or for more richness, use regular sized vegan chocolate chips.
Yup. The awesome part is that you won’t lose the fudgy-ness or richness when these brownies are made GF. Simply, reduce the amount of water and substitute all-purpose four with 1-to-1 baking flour blend. I love the Bob’s Red Mill’s version.
Leftovers are best stored in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. For longer storage, you can refrigerate for up to 5 days. Warm slightly once ready to serve.
In addition, you can freeze these beauties for an even longer storage time. Just add them to a freezer-safe air-tight container and they can last for up to 3 months. To thaw, remove from the freezer and add to the fridge overnight.

Did I mention—-DELICIOUS?
OK, let’s dig right into this recipe shall we?
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a square 8 x 8 baking pan with vegan butter and line with parchment paper.
Begin by adding the flaxseed meal + water to a small bowl, stirring until combined and letting it sit for 5-10 minutes. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add the melted butter and sugar together, whisking until combined.
Add in the flaxseed meal mixture and vanilla, whisking to combine.
Now, add in flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder, mixing everything together a spatula or wooden spoon, until fully combined. **NOTE: Batter will be thick, that’s OK**
Finally, add in 1/2 of the chocolate chips and fold them in gently.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and evenly spread it in. Pour the remaining 1/2 of chocolate chips and gently press them in slightly.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the center comes out “mostly clean”.
Remove from oven and let cool for about 20 minutes or so before lifting brownies out from the pan.
Once fully removed, let the brownies cool for another 10-15 minutes before slicing into squares.
Serve each brownie with your favorite non-dairy ice cream, fruit, or sprinkled powdered sugar, if desired.
