  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup dairy free chocolate chips plus more for topping
  • 4 tbsp dairy free butter melted
  • 1 cup cane sugar
  • 3 flax eggs see notes
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Start by making the flax eggs: stir 3 tbsp flaxseed meal with 7 tbsp water; set aside.
  • Add oil and chocolate chips to a saucepan, heat over low heat and stir frequently until chocolate has melted and is smooth; set aside.
  • Pour melted butter into a large bowl, then add the sugar and whisk together for 30 seconds; then, add stir in the flax eggs and vanilla and stir to combine.
  • Sift the flour and cocoa powder into the bowl, then add the baking powder and salt and stir for 20 seconds or so. Then, add in the melted chocolate and stir until everything is combined. The batter should be fairly thick in texture.
  • Grease an 8x8 baking dish with coconut oil (or line with parchment paper), then scoop the batter in and use a spatula to smooth it out. Sprinkle some extra chocolate chips on top, then bake the brownies for 35-40 minutes until a toothpick comes out mostly clean. It's ok to have a few crumbs on the toothpick, but if the batter is still wet, then you should bake them for a few extra minutes.
  • Remove brownies from the oven, then wait at least 45 minutes before cutting. Sprinkle with sea salt (optional) and enjoy!


*If you want these to be oil-free, you can omit the 1 tbsp coconut oil and melt the chocolate without it; I think the oil helps the chocolate melt better, but it isn't 100% necessary.
*3 flax eggs = 3 tbsp flaxseed meal + 7 tbsp water
