Easy Vegan and Gluten-Free Brownies


Very chocolatey and surprisingly good!  I will be playing around with some vegan baking recipes.  Here is the first of many!

Easy Vegan Brownies

Serves 8


1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup Truvia Baking Blend 
2 large flax eggs (2 tbsp flaxseed + 6 tbsp water)
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup dutch process cocoa powder
3/4 cup almond flour
optional add ins: 1/3 cup walnuts or chocolate chips or a mixture of both!


Preheat oven 350 degrees and spray a 8 standard size with cooking spray or place a paper liner in each.
Prepare flax eggs* in a small bowl and let rest in the fridge for 15 minutes
*(grind your flaxseed and slowly add the 6 tablespoons of water whisking with a small whisk until blended)
Place coconut oil in large bowl and melt in microwave.  Then stir in flax eggs, Truvia, vanilla, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder. Whisk to combine then add almond flour stir until just combined then fold in nuts or chips if using.
Scoop batter in muffin tin filling each until 3/4 full and bake on the middle rack for 20-25 minutes.  Do not bake too long because they will get very crumbly. 
Cool completely on a rack
Store in airtight container or they can be frozen.
