Our Mission to Make the Best Vegan Brownies


We set ourselves a difficult goal, to try and make a vegan brownie better than the the original, more gooey and more chocolatey. 

After several recipe attempts, we decided on replacing egg with the ground flax seed as when you add warm water it becomes the consistency of eggs if not more glutinous without the gluten. When you make brownies you're not looking for a rise just an agent to bind as the aim is for them to be really fudgy. We found that ground flax seed had this affect, in addition it also a buttery flavour which would obviously be lacking in a vegan brownie. 

What's the best ingredient to replace the butter? We tried olive oil, rapeseed oil, coconut oil and also sunflower oil, but settled on sunflower as it is light. Everything else is really as per the normal recipe, we've increased chocolate if that was possible? And also replaced the regular wheat flour for a gluten free flour. The aim was for the vegan brownies to be gluten free also, and are considering using this flour in all of our recipes? 

He's the recipe (it's not exactly the same as that needs to remain a secret but this will produce a 20 x 20 cm of brownies that are pretty close)

200g 70% Dark Chocolate 

225g Golden Caster Sugar

180g Gluten Free Flour

150 ml Sunflower Oil

50g Cocoa Powder

3 dsp ground flax seed 

9 dsp of warm water

1/4 tsp vanilla seeds

Baking Parchment 

Vegan Brownie Ingredients

Method

1. Add the warm water to flax seed and whisk until well mixed, leave to stand and thicken. Put the oven onto 170 degrees C

2. Melt the chocolate & sugar with the sunflower oil over a bain marie or in the microwave. 

3. In a mixing bowl add the flour, vanilla seeds, and cocoa.

4. When the flax has thickened mix it into the meted chocolate and then add the whole mix to the dry mix. Beat the mixture together, it will go like a thick batter mix.

5. Line the baking tray with parchment and spray with oil, place the mixture into the tray and bake for 15-20 minutes. 

When ready, the brownies should still leave a little brownie mix on skewer when poked. Remove from the tin on a rack and allow to cool for at least 40 minutes, vegan brownies may benefit from chilling in the fridge to help them set a bit more.

The receiver says: INCREDIBLE!

I sent these as a gift to a very dear friend for her birthday. Well - she was beyond complimentary and said she will using this company again for her own gift giving. So now I need to order some for myself as her review was off the charts!

wow as good as they look

I brought these and they were amazing! Went down a treat with work.....such good flavours...I am already thinking when can I order my next batch.

Brilliant and unusual gift

I bought these for a friend who has since let me know that they were delicious. They arrived on time and were well packaged. I also really appreciated the email after I placed the order- its these personal touches that set smaller businesses ahead of the game. I would definitely order again (and probably just for me next time!). Thank you!

Wonderful gift

Twice I have received a gift from Brownie Heaven. The brownies come wrapped really attractively and look so delicious - but not nearly as delicious as they taste. A great gift for anyone. Thankyou.

Absolutely delicious

I bought these for my fiancé for Valentine's -- his face was a picture! Gooey and sweet, the lemon is counterpointed perfectly by the white chocolate.
