Brownies are wonderful things, aren't they? So rich and chocolatey.
We've been out of the brownies game for a while, making mostly cookies. This recipe was a great comeback recipe. And we just couldn't leave good enough alone so we topped these beautiful brownies off with some So Delicious Mint Marble Fudge Ice Cream!
Vegan Walnut Brownies
Adapted from veganbaking.net
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp flax meal
1 ¾ cup AP flour
¼ tsp baking soda
7 tbsp cocoa powder
½ cup chocolate chips
¾ tsp salt
¼ cup boiling water
1 ½ cups organic sugar
6 tbsp Earth Balance Buttery Sticks
1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
½ cup chopped walnuts
In a small bowl or cup mix together the water and flax. Let sit for 10 mins or until congealed. Preheat oven to 350˚F and line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl whisk together flour and baking soda. In another medium bowl add cocoa powder, chocolate chips, salt, and boiling water. Mix thoroughly until chocolate has melted and everything is incorporated. Next, add the flax egg, sugar, Earth Balance, and vanilla. Mix until you have one homogenous mixture. Now, throw in the nuts.
Add the flour a little at a time. It’ll get tough at the end, so get out your wooden spoon or use your hands but whatever you do don’t over mix! Did I scare ya?
Transfer to the baking dish and bake for 25 mins. Once it’s down place it on a cooling rack for an hour. When the hour’s up lift the brownies out of the baking dish and allow to cool completely.
