Gooey Vegan Chocolate Brownies

Serving: 8 | Prep time: 20 minutes | Cooking Time: 20 minutes | Skill: Simple

 "So gooey and delicious! If you haven't baked with coconut flour before you will notice it is very thick and dense so you might wonder why there is only a small amount however you don't need a lot but you do need lots of moisture so it doesn't become tacky when you eat it. The mixture will be thick when you put it into the oven. When munching on these you will be pleased to know that it is even healthy for you! packed full of protein from the walnuts, almonds, chia seeds and cashew butter.  Good fats from the coconut flour, coconut oil, almonds and cashews.  Even contains the superfood raw cacao which is great for boosting your immune system. "   Tash x


2 tbsp chia seeds
6 tbsp water
100g dates
70g cashew butter
45g coconut oil (melted over a medium heat)
45ml of rice milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
80g organic agave syrup, coconut palm sugar, rice syrup or honey
20g ground almonds
50g raw cacao powder
30g Coconut flour
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp Himalayan salt
55g roughly chopped walnuts


    1. Pre-heat the oven to 175°C
    2. Soak the dates in a bowl of hot water for 20 minutes and then strain and discard the water.
    3. In a separate bowl soak the chia seeds in the 6 tbsp of water.
    4. In a blender put the melted coconut oil, cashew butter, rice milk, agave, vanilla essence and soaked dates and blend until smooth (a few small lump of dates is ok and will add a nice texture to the brownie).
    5. In a bowl weigh out the salt, baking powder, coconut flour and cacao powder.
    6. Pour the mixture out of the blender and combine with the flour, salt and baking powder and cacao and add the soaked chia seeds (they should have soaked up most of the water).
    7. Mix in the chopped nuts (optional)
    8. The mixture is thick so don’t expect it to be runny. Put into a lined brownie tray about 1 inch thick and put into the oven for 20 minutes.
    9. Take out the oven and leave to cool and enjoy the gooeyness of these heavenly chocolatey treats.

    Can almond milk be used instead of rice milk?

    Azita :

    These are delicious:-) Substituted the rice milk with oat milk and the cashew butter with peanut butter, plus put a dash of Lucuma in it (for taste+added nutrition), and it worked very well. We had this together with dairy-free vanilla ice cream, which added to the treat! The only thing I will try to change next time, is to use a little less raw cacao, as the youngest and the oldest in our family thought it was a little too dark/bitter.
    Thank you for posting the recipe, and helping us sustain a healthy diet without deprivation! :-D

    I added an egg which made the mixture less stiff but it still tasted nice and chewy. I substituted agave with Stevia and a little coconut palm sugar to reduce sugar loading. They turned out yummy.

    They were delicious! Made them with the Chocolate Lover Mix from Your Superfoods! Healthy Brownie Recipes | Keep Healthy Living :D

    The key to keeping regular brownies moist is usually loads of butter or other fat. To ensure a nice fudgy texture, take care not to overbake. Large chocolate chunks create big, luxurious pockets of melty chocolate in our first recipe, Classic Fudge-Walnut Brownies, but you can always substitute chocolate chips.

    Sarah: Substitute 100g plain wheat or spelt flour in place of coconut flour.

    Emma Hinks:


    Are the ground almonds on top of the brownies or in the mixture? I have just made some, they are currently in the oven with the almonds mixed in, then I looked back at the photo and wondered if the topping was the almonds!! If so, are they sprinkled on before or after cooking?

    Really looking forward to trying these, the mixture tasted divine. Thank you for such a fab recipe.
