Equipment

  • 8x8 square pan or fun shape, like a heart shape

Ingredients
  

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds + 4 tablespoons water
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa or cacao
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cup coconut sugar or 1/2 cup + 2 teaspoons Truvia (stevia+xylitol blend)

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1 cup stevia sweetened chocolate chips (divided)
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon strong brewed coffee
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and prepare your pan with nonstick spray and/or parchment paper.
  • Mix the ground flax seeds and water in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix the whole wheat pastry flour, almond flour, cocoa or cacao, salt, and baking soda. If it is lumpy, you may need to sift it or use a whisk to mix it together well.
  • Melt 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips (in the microwave or the top of a double boiler). If you microwave it, only microwave for 30 seconds at a time, then stir. If the chocolate seizes and hardens, you can rescue it by adding a tablespoon of hot water and stirring.
  • To the melted chocolate, add the flax seed mixture, the brewed coffee, almond milk, and vanilla extract.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir well. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and the walnuts, if using. Stir and pour into the prepared pan, spreading the top with a spatula to even out.
  • Bake for 32-35 minutes until a knife inserted in the center comes out mostly clean. (It may have some soft crumb or melted chocolate chip on it, but you don't want it to still be raw inside). Slightly undercooked will be good, though, and there is no raw egg to worry about.
  • Let the brownies cool in the pan for at least an hour, or they will break apart when you try to cut them. Serve with vegan ice cream or whipped cream or with a tall glass of ice cold almond milk.
