Preparation

Vegan Brownies

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Start by mixing the flax seeds with the water. Set aside for 15 minutes for mixture to thicken.
  3. Now mix the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, coconut sugar, espresso powder, and fine sea salt, in a bowl together. Use a whisk to help incorporate all the ingredients very well.
  4. In another bowl, add 3/4 cup chopped chocolate and coconut oil. Place on top of a pan of simmering water. Whisk until chocolate is melted and incorporated with coconut oil. Add cashew butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth.
  5. Pour chocolate mixture over dry ingredients. Add flax seeds mixture to the bowl also.
  6. Mix with a spatula until incorporated. Add remaining 1/2 cup chopped chocolate and nuts. Mix until combined.
  7. If using a 8x8” cake pan, line it with parchment paper. I used a mini brownie pan, and my pan is awesome and doesn’t require to be greased. If you are using a silicon pan, you probably won’t need to grease that either.
  8. Pour batter over whatever chosen pan. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 10-20 minutes, depending on what size pan you chose.

Vegan Caramel Sauce

  1. Mix all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil while whisking constantly. Keep whisking mixture until smooth. Take it off the heat and let it cool down for just a few seconds. Then pour mixture. It will start to set pretty quickly, so you have to pour right after you turn the heat off. Otherwise, it will have more of a spreadable consistency.
