Gluten free Vegan brownies and brownie mix. Oats + almonds + smooth chocolate. Add walnuts or other nuts for variation. Easy Soy-free Palm oil free Recipe. Makes a 9 by 9 or 8 by 8 inch brownie pan | Vegan Richa

Because brownies. I have a bunch of brownies on the blog and I keep trying to make them easier and fudgier 🙂 We all need some chocolate to start a Monday.

These brownies are super chocolatey and fudgy. I made a brownie mix by blending the dry ingredients. To bake, just mix with the non dairy milk and oil and bake! Perfect for gifting! The brownie mix can be made ahead and stored reducing all the measuring and mixing steps. 

The dry flour ingredients are blended with the non dairy chocolate , sugar and cocoa and stored. You can also make the brownie from scratch with the same ingredients. Melt the chocolate in the non dairy milk and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix and bake. The brownie mix version is easier, as you can take any amount of the mix to make a smaller portion too :).

You want to use a good quality chocolate for the brownie mix. If the mix tends to make oily brownies, then reduce the chocolate(the gets ground up) amount in the mix and add some more cocoa powder. These are amazing Vegan Gluten free Brownies! Let me know if you make them.

Ingredients 
 

Dry:

  • 3/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp starch like corn or arrowroot
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 scant tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar, use 2 to 3 tbsp less for less sweet, powdered
  • 1/2 cup vegan semi sweet chocolate , or dark chocolate or combination
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 2 tbsp flax seed meal
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Wet:

  • 1/2 cup non dairy milk, use 1/4 cup + 3 Tbsp non dairy milk if making with brownie mix
  • 3 to 4 tbsp Oil , or use applesauce or half oil
  • Add in: 1/3 cup vegan semi sweet chocolate chips to add to batter

Instructions 

Make the brownie mix:

  • Add the flours through sugar to a blender and blend well. Move the flour around as it can get packed under the blender blade. Add the chocolate, cocoa, flax seed meal and vanilla. Blend again until well combined. Move the flour around again and check under the blender blade. Transfer to a quart mason jar. Add 1/3 cup chocolate chips to the jar and store.

To make the brownie from mix:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F / 180ºc. Prepare a brownie pan by lining with parchment. Empty the mix jar into a bowl. Add 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup + 3 Tbsp non dairy milk and mix until well combined. Drop the thick batter onto the pan. Press using a spatula to even it out to almost fill the pan. Bake for 25 to 27 minutes. Cool for at least 20 minutes before slicing.

To make the brownie from scratch:

  • Heat 1/2 cup non dairy milk until just about boiling. Add flax meal, vanilla and sugar into the non dairy milk. Add the chocolate and oil and let it sit for a minute, Mix until melted and smooth. In another bowl, whisk rest of the dry ingredients. Add the whisked dry to the wet. Mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips into the batter. Drop the thick batter onto the pan. Press using a spatula to even it out to almost fill the pan. Bake for 25 to 27 minutes, or until a toothpick from an inch from edge comes out clean. Cool for atleast 20 minutes before slicing.

Notes

Variation: add chopped walnuts to batter before baking.
Do not over bake. The brownies are done when toothpick from 1 inch from the sides comes out clean. The center might be gooey, it will continue to cook and set outside.

    Hi Richa, I love your recipes. I usually use avocado oil for these brownies, but I’m out of it. Do you think I could substitute 3 or 4 Tablespoons of drippy almond butter for the oil? Thanks!

    1. Vegan Richa Support says:

      I’ve not tested this substitution, but it’s certainly worth a try. Let us know how they turn out!

    OMG. AMAZING! PERFECTION!! I altered our recipe by substituting a third of the sugar (we used coconut)with a zero calorie sweetener. Also, I used garbanzo AND oat flour rather than just oat. SO GOOD!!!!!!! Can wait to have this with ice cream!
    Thank you!

    Hi Richa
    These turned out super delicious. I was looking for a good vegan brownie recipe that doesnt call for mysterious ingredients and this one’s a keeper. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Vegan Richa Support says:

      great! yes, the less mystery ingredients the better. thank you

  6. Zena says:

    To make these oil free, can I use yogurt (where youve given us the option of yogurt or apple sauce) and then sub out the oil for applesauce? Do you think this will change the texture/ make them less moist?

    1. Richa says:

      Yes they will be a bit cakey witb that much moisture.

    They were a little grainy from the oat flour, but it didn’t bother me or my husband at all because they were still so delicious! I made them from scratch and the batter was not thick like the pictures, and I was a little nervous, but they came out prefect! Will be my go to recipe

    1. Richa says:

    Hi Richa your recipes are really good i ve been trying alot of them
    I have a question im using tapioca starch for these recipe is that ok ?
    because when i bake it keep sinking the middle of the brownies i wonder why that is happening
    thank you

    1. Richa says:

      it might be. Brownies are generally fudgy and they dont rise like a cake. So these brownies will rise just a bit and then settle to make a fudgy texture. A cake on the other hand if its falling in the middle then it is probably the batter consistency or its missing enough holding ingredients

    Thank you for the amazing recipe! I made this with the full amount of oat flour and added rice flour and chickpea flour instead of almond flour as those were the ones that I had on hand. I also used coconut sugar and applesauce with about one tablespoon of coconut oil. I didn’t have chocolate chips, so I melted down a chocolate bar. They were delicious but definitely a bit dry. Any suggestions for added moisture without adding more oil?

    1. Richa says:

      Some gluten-free flours tend to dry out while baking (oil or not). Oat flour and Rice flour especially. Almond flour adds the moisture to these and hold it in there. With that missing, i imagine they would dry out really quickly. You may be able to get them to stay moist if you bake them less time so they are mostly gooey all through.
