Author: Vegan Richa
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 16
Ingredients
Dry:
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp whole wheat pastry flour or whole wheat flour or Spelt flour
  • 1 tbsp starch like arrowroot or cornstarch
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
Wet:
  • 3 tbsp maple
  • ¼ cup water
  • ⅓ to ½ cup vegan semi sweet chocolate
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp instant espresso/coffee
  • 3 tbsp oil
Additions:
  • 3 Tbsp vegan mini chocolate chips
  • 3 tbsp chopped walnuts or pecans
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, add all the dry ingredients and whisk really well. *Pulse the sugar and coconut sugar a few times in a blender to make a powder if needed and then mix in.
  3. Heat the maple and water in a pan or microwave until hot. Add the chocolate and mix until all the chocolate melts and is smooth. Add the vanilla, coffee and oil and mix in.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix to just about combined. It will be a stiff batter, stiffer as it gets cold. Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts or other additions.
  5. Drop the mixture onto a parchment lined or greased or well floured brownie pan. Spread the mixture evenly using a spatula if needed. I used greased hands to move and press for an even thickness. Sprinkle any toppings if you like like chopped walnuts, chocolate chips, crushed candy cane and press in.
  6. Bake for 22 to 24 minutes. Check with a toothpick about an inch from the corner. The toothpick should not come out liquid. Do not over bake.
  7. Cool for atleast 20 minutes if you can before moving them out of the dish. Slice and serve.
Notes
Add other nuts or seeds, cranberries, crushed candy cane, candied ginger+ gingerbread spices for holiday brownies.
