These brownies are completely vegan and gluten free, although you’d never guess it taking a bite. Perfectly crisp on the outside, super fudgey centre, chewy or gooey in all the right places! This treat is for parents and big kids if they’re on good behaviour.

  • Total Time 45 minutes
  • Servings 16 brownies


  • 4 tbsp (60 ml) ground chia
  • 1/2 cup ( 120 ml) + 2 tbsp (30 ml) water
  • 2/3 cup (160 ml) coconut oil
  • 1 cup (200g)  demerara sugar, or raw cane sugar
  • 3/4 cup (90g) coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (100g) cocoa powder
  • 1 cup (100g) + 2 tbsp (15g) coconut flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt finely ground
  • 3/4 cup (100g) semi-sweet dark chocolate chopped into chunks


  1. Combine ground chia and water in a bowl. Whisk together. Wait at least 10 minutes for consistency to become egg-like. 
  2. In a saucepan melt coconut oil, add demerara sugar, and coconut sugar and vanilla. Add chia egg and stir to combine liquids.
  3. Sift cocoa powder and coconut flour into a large mixing bowl, add baking powder and sea salt and mix to combine. Then pour in liquid mixture. Stir to combine, but don’t over mix. Add semi-sweet dark chocolate chunks and stir again to combine.
  4. Preheat oven to 350F/175C. Line a baking dish with parchment paper and pour brownie mix into dish (I used a 7x7 inch baking dish), smooth with spatula to even. Bake brownies for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the brownie comes out clean. Let cool before cutting.
