When I try to describe these paleo vegan fudge brownies intelligibly, I’m almost at a loss for words.

These vegan brownies are rich, decadent, chewy on the inside with the perfect thin layer of crisp on the outside, and taste like a browniegasm is exploding in your face.

They are – in a word – SULTRY.

…which would be amazing enough if these brownies were your standard sugar, wheat, and butter-laiden brownie, but you guys, they’re not!

In fact, they are…

  • Vegan (egg-free and dairy-free)
  • Grain-free and gluten-free
  • Made with all natural ingredients
  • Sweetened with coconut sugar for a lower-glycemic treat
  • Sprinkled with sea salt for that salty-sweet hyperpalatable bliss.
  • Protein-packed with both almond butter and almond flour.

Don’t tell the other brownies I said this, but…this is my favorite brownie recipe I’ve made so far. I’ve been in hot pursuit of perfecting a brownie that is both paleo and vegan, and I daresay, these are surely they!

Or am I the only one here who craves such sensations? Bueller?

How To Make Delicious Vegan Fudge Brownies

  • We make a couple “flax eggs” to replace regular eggs (don’t worry if you’re new to flax eggs – all you need is ground flax seed…I’ll walk you through the rest in the recipe card below).
  • We use almond butter (or cashew butter) as a binding agent and fudge maker. Just be sure whatever nut butter you use is pre-stirred, as the ones that come separated may be too thick.
  • …which combined with the coconut oil makes for an incredibly silky-smooth fudgy experience.
  • Instead of wheat flour, we use almond flour.
  • Rather than using cane sugar, we use coconut sugar
  • We double chocolate-it-up by using vegan chocolate chips. Note: I had non-vegan chocolate chips on hand, so I used them but be sure to choose the chocolate chip product you’re comfortable using.

Just like the majority of my other dessert recipes, we simply add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until combined. Bake it up, sprinkle it with sea salt, and you’re in for one incredibly chocolatey experience.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Replace flax “eggs” with chia eggs.
  • Use cashew butter, walnuts butter, peanut butter, etc. in place of almond butter (just make sure whatever nut butter you use is pre-stirred and not overly thick).
  • Swap almond flour with hazelnut flour.
  • To make low-carb and Keto, replace the coconut sugar with zero-sugar sweetener. 
  • Replace the vegan chocolate chips with your favorite dark chocolate chips or chunks.
  • Use avocado oil or almond oil instead of coconut oil.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a 9" x 5" loaf pan with parchment paper (or spray with cooking spray).

  2. Start by preparing the flax "eggs." Stir together the ground flax seed and water together in a small bowl. Allow mixture to sit, stirring occasionally, until thickened and the consistency of beaten eggs, about 15 minutes.

  3. Add the flax "egg" mixture to a blender along with the remaining ingredients except the chocolate chips. Blend until well combined (note: if you don't own a high-powered blender, you can use a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer. The batter will be very thick. Fold in the vegan chocolate chips.

  4. Transfer the brownie batter to the prepared loaf pan and smooth into an even layer. Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until set up. 

  5. Remove from the oven and allow brownies to sit for 30 minutes before releasing them from the loaf pan. Sprinkle with sea salt (if desired), cut into squares, and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

*Replace coconut sugar with zero-calorie sweetener such as Swerve, Monk Fruit Sweetener, or Stevia to make recipe Keto. Use sugar-free chocolate chips to keep Keto.

    Have you actually tried the Keto version and what brand of chips and sweetener do you endorse? My 20 yr old daughter is trying to go Keto I and I want to help her! The transition is hard and brownies might help.

    What is the texture of the batter supposed to be like? My Vitamix could barely handle it, had to keep stopping to stir it and then use the tamper the batter was so thick and almost the texture of a thick nut butter. Don’t think a regular blender could handle this, there is not enough liquid!

      Hi Stephanie,

      Was your almond butter pre-stirred or was it super thick? I’ll add instructions for mixing the brownies by hand for those who don’t have a powerful blender.
