My vegan and gluten-free mochaccino brownies are super rich and chocolatey with just the right amount of sweetness. I came up with this recipe while experimenting and they turned out better than I expected so I had to share the recipe (but also so I can make these again lol).
Bonus: they also contain a little extra protein compared to a regular brownie!
Vegan, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free
1 tbsp ground flax seed + 3 tbsp water (this is your flax egg)
1/3 cup + 2 tbsp coconut sugar
1/3 cup Natur-a Cappuccino Organic Soy Milk* (if you don’t have this, try a combination of cold coffee or espresso and dairy-free milk – I haven’t tried this so results may vary)
2 tbsp avocado oil
2 tbsp tahini
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1/3 cup raw cacao powder
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp arrowroot starch
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips
*note: the soy milk contains sugar
Line a loaf pan (8.5×4.5×2″) with parchment paper.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, mix flax seeds and water to create a flax egg. Set aside for about 10 minutes to thicken.
- Add sugar, cappuccino soy milk, avocado oil, tahini into the bowl and whisk until combined.
- Fold in coconut flour, almond flour, cacao powder, baking powder, arrowroot starch, and salt in until combined.
- Add in vanilla and chocolate chips and fold just until combined.
- Batter should be thick and slightly sticky. Pour into the loaf pan and flatten the top with a spatula.
- Bake on middle rack of the oven for about 25 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the middle and if it’s mostly clean, the brownies are done. Keep in mind the chocolate chips will be melted and will cause the toothpick to come out unclean.
- Allow to cool at least 20 minutes before slicing and serving.
These brownies DO contain some caffeine (from the cacao powder) so if you are sensitive, avoid eating these before bed.
