Chocolatie Brownies

More chocolate anyone? Uhm, yes please!! 🙂 I whipped these brownies up on my mums request in about 15 minutes (with a further 12 minutes baking time) and somehow the ingredients I threw together worked. These brownies are chocolatie and not too sweet (just the way I like it). So if you need a quick dessert or a chocolate hit, give these a try!!

Makes: 9 squares
Preparation and baking time: 25 minutes


  • 160 g self-raising flour (I only used half this amount and added chestnut flour  for the other half with an added 1/2 tsp of baking powder, but this is up to you)
  • 40 g brown sugar
  • 15 g cocoa powder
  • 160 g dark (vegan) chocolate
  • 40 g margarine (or vegan butter/coconut oil)
  • 3 (vegan) eggs (click for my flax egg recipe)
  • 40 g agave syrup (or honey)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 °C (lower if you’re using a fan oven) and grease/line a 19 cm square tin.
  2. Make the vegan eggs (if you’re using regular eggs you can skip this step).
  3. Mix all the dry ingredients together (flour(s), sugar and cocoa powder) in a bowl.
  4. Melt the chocolate and margarine in a separate bowl above boiling water. Once melted add the eggs ( if you’re using real eggs, let the choc/marg cool a bit before adding them). Then add the syrup to the liquid.
  5. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ones and stir until combined.
  6. Pour the mixture into the tin and place it in the oven.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin for about 5 minutes until transferring it to a wire wrack.

Before devouring my piece I sprinkled some shredded coconut on top which is one of my favourite combinations with chocolate. I hope you enjoyed this recipe! Let me know what you think xx
