Vegan Brownie Mix in a Jar. Single Serve Brownie too. Vegan Recipe

Vegan Brownie Mix in a Jar | Vegan Richa


Brownies right! Holiday gifting cannot be complete without some Fudgy Dark Chocolate Brownies! 

Two options to gift. A Single Serve Brownie in a jar. Mix, Bake and Serve in the jar. Or a jar that makes 10 pieces that you can share, or not. :) Both use 100% Spelt, Organic fair trade 70% Dark chocolate Theo bar(these bars are amazing), organic unsweetened cocoa powder, chocolate chips/carob chips and bliss.

All Vegan, all awesome! I love the brownies with the 70% Dark bars instead of melting regular chocolate chips. The Dark chocolate had cocoa butter and a hint of vanilla. The Single Serve jars can be easily made gluten-free with gluten-free flours like Oat, nut flours, sorghum, millet or brown rice.
What chocolate goodies are you planning to gift this year. 

Eat me! Brownies from Vegan Brownie Mix in a Jar. 

The secret to fudgy brownies, under bake them, I cannot stress that enough. They continue to bake once outside too. so let the center be a pudding if you will.

Large Brownie Jar:
Make the jar. Layer the spelt, sugar, cocoa powder. Then dark chocolate tabs.

Add chocolate chips, seal and gift.

Take the Dark Chocolate tabs from the jar. Add to warm-hot non dairy milk. I use almond milk or coconut milk most days.

Mix well, add oil, mix. In another bowl, empty the rest of the jar contents. Give them a whisk and add to the melted chocolate oil mixture. Mix to combine.
I prefer to remove the chocolate chips from the jar and add to the batter later. My chocolate chips are mixed in with carob chips in the storage bin.

Drop and even the batter out with a spatula. Thats thick.

Bake in pre-heated 365 degrees F for 31 minutes. Cool completely before slicing. the middle might look liquidy, but it will continue to bake and set as it cools. 

Single Serve Brownie Steps:

Melt the dark chocolate tab in 2 tsps almond milk.

Add oil and mix. Whisk the dry ingredients and add to melted chocolate. Bake in pre-heated 365 degrees F for 15+ minutes.

cool for a few minutes before digging in. The pictured jar below has a bit more batter for photographs. The batter will make about 3/4 of the jar. Anything more than that make sit difficult to mix up the batter within the jar.

Brownie Mix in a Jar
Allergen Information: Free of Dairy, egg, soy, yeast. Can be made nut-free, corn-free. Can be made gluten-free with all purpose gluten-free flour blend. *soy-free if the chocolate chips and bars is free of soy.

Ingredients: 1 16 oz, 2 cup Mason Jar. Makes 8.5 by 4.5 inch bread pan, 1 inch thick. Use any thick pan or stoneware pan or make 2 mini loaves.
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp Spelt flour (2 Tbsp less than 3/4 cup)

1 Tbsp flaxseed meal
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
2 Tablespoons almond or cashew meal(grind with some Oats or cornstarch to reduce chances of becoming nut-butter), or use spelt flour
1 Tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot starch (optional)
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp ground raw sugar (or maple sugar or any other fine sugar)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1.5 oz 70% Dark Chocolate Bar(I used 1/2 a Theo bar(42 gms), or 1/4 cup chocolate chips)
1/4 cup choc chips (these get added to batter)
To be added later:
1/4 cup oil or vegan butter (3 Tbsp will work too)
1/4 cup non dairy milk (or 3 Tablespoons milk + 1 Tablespoon maple syrup)
Make the Jar:
Mix the flaxmeal, salt, baking soda, baking powder, almond meal and cornstarch into the Spelt flour. Layer the Spelt, cocoa powder, sugar evenly. Top the layers with the dark chocolate bars and the 1/4 cup chocolate chips. 
Instructions on the jar:
In a bowl, add warm-hot 1/4 cup non dairy milk. Remove Dark chocolate tabs from the jar, add to milk and mix until melted. Add the 1/4 cup(or 3 Tbsp) oil/butter and mix to combine. In another bowl, empty the rest of the dry ingredients from the jar. Whisk well. Add the melted chocolate mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix just enough to combine. Press and spread batter evenly into parchment lined or greased pan. Bake at preheated 365 degrees F for 31-33 minutes. Brownies are done when a toothpick inserted one inch from the corner comes out almost clean. 
Store in an airtight container when cool. For longer shelf life(if the brownies actually last more than 2 days) store in refrigerator. Warm before serving. 
Notes: Baking time depends on ovens. Smaller pans will need less time to bake. Eat them once cool enough to handle. Do not Overbake. Trust me, you would rather eat it with a pudding center, than the crusty hard edges. If a toothpick from the center comes out clean, they are over baked and might become hard after cooling. 
Warm them in the microwave or oven to soften, top with your favorite ganache, salted caramel and/or ice cream and serve. Brownies are done when a toothpick inserted 1 inch from the corner comes out almost clean, 2 inches from the corners for a larger pan. The center might look liquidy but it will continue to bake outside for another 5 minutes. Double the ingredients for a 8 by 8 brownie pan. I use a combination of oils, virgin coconut, extra virgin olive oil or vegan butter(Use any 2 of these, 1/8 cup each to make the total 1/4 cup oil). The oils, butter melt easily when combined with the warm melted chocolate. If making the brownie from scratch, then add the flaxmeal into the wet ingredients. Mix, let sit for 5 minutes and then add the rest of the whisked dry ingredients.

    Great thinking! I’ve seen plenty of cookie and brownie mix gifts, but never one packaged packed in the very jar it can be baked in. So smart, and so much fun. :)

      It is a 16 oz , 1 pint regular mason jar in the pictures and it is filled with the exact measurements. it might be slightly tight fit but if you knock the jar a couple of times so the flour settles in well then it should fit in well. the jar fits a bit more than 2 cups dry ingredients , the flour is 3/4 cup, sugar 3/4 cup, 1/4 cup cocoa, and 1/4 cup + 1/4 cup chocolate chips is abt 2 1/4 cup.

      Hi Cherl. I made the jar again and you are right it barely fits. Ithink i used 1/2 cup sugar when i made the jars hence it fit. I am sorry about that. You can use the same measurements and pack the dark chocolate in a bag outside. or reduce both the sugar and flour by 2 Tablespoons.

    What is the size of baking pan. Can you please tell the brands of vegan dark choc bar or chocolate chip brands that you use?

  3. Arathi says

    Hi! For the single serving it can be baked in the microwave for 35 seconds and then it’s ready to eat? Is that accurate?

    • says

      yes that is right. first heat the milk to hot(about 30 seconds in microwave), add the chocolate bar and melt it. add that to the jar and microwave for 35 seconds.
