My favourite ever brownie recipe!
These brownies deliver on every possible level of deliciousness. They include hazelnuts - not just from the nuts themselves, but also from the flavour of coffee and chocolate I used - coffee and sea salt.
I drizzled mine with extra dark chocolate, sprinkled them with a little more sea salt and added more toasted hazelnuts, all optional of course. As is the choice of nuts; choose what you like, walnuts and pecans work especially well with this.
I use a mix of flax and chia as an egg replacement, you can just use flax if you wish. Also, you can swap for a GF flour blend it should work, however I am yet to try with this particular recipe. I’d love to hear how it goes if you do.
This recipe uses a hazelnut-flavoured granulated coffee and dark chocolate, but any strong coffee or plain chocolate will work too.
For the brownies
2 tbs ground flax
1 tbs chia seed
8tbs strong brewed coffee
¾ cup soft brown sugar
7 tbs vegan butter
1 cup roughly chopped dark chocolate I used hazelnut flavoured
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
1 scant cup of plain flour
¼ cup raw cacao or Dutch cocoa
1 tsp bicarbonate soda
1 tsp sea salt
¼ cup toasted roughly chopped hazelnuts
50g dark chocolate
Good pinch sea salt
3 tbs roughly chopped toasted hazelnuts
