How do you make a decadent chocolate brownie with no dairy and no egg?

Actually, quite easily. These vegan brownies are made with non-dairy milk, a quality vegetable oil like avocado oil, and what’s called a “flax egg.”

What is a flax egg?

Flax eggs are ground flax seeds mixed with warm water—which, in 10 minutes, turn into a gelatinous viscous mixture. For rich chocolate brownies, a flax “egg” fills in quite nicely for a chicken egg.

How do you make a rich dark chocolate brownie gluten free?

Of course brownies are typically made with wheat flour. Here, the wheat is replaced with a combination of three alternative flours–almond, buckwheat, and brown rice—each with unique flavor and character contributing to the whole.

  • With toasty, almost cocoa-y, and honey nuances, buckwheat flour is milled from roasted buckwheat seeds. You might think buckwheat is a strain of wheat or another grain, but in fact buckwheat is an herb, and a cousin of rhubarb, and gluten-free. Buckwheat flour’s fairly assertive flavor balances nicely the almond and rice flours.
  • Finely ground from blanched sweet almonds, almond flour is a gluten-free baking staple in my kitchen. Almond flour adds a welcome protein boost and subtle buttery flavor to these chocolate pecan brownies.
  • You’ll like the almond flour in these chocolate chip almond cookies, gluten free cowboy cookies, and orange almond honey cake, all blue-ribbon recipes here on the blog!!

  • In addition to buckwheat and almond flours, these brownies have brown rice flour too. Brown rice flour adds structure to the crumb, helping these gluten free brownies from being too “gummy”, which is sometimes a problem in gluten free baked goods. With the germ and bran intact, brown rice flour has a toasted, almost caramel-y flavor and a graininess that softens as the brownies sit. Which means these chocolate pecan brownies are even better the next day!!

*** I found all three gluten-free flours in the bulk bins at our natural food grocery store, a bonus because you only need to buy the amount needed for one recipe.

I’m confident you’ll want a stash of the three alternative flours in your pantry, because winning vegan gluten free chocolate pecan brownies are about to become your go-to brownie recipe!! 🙂

  • Have you made these without sugar? perhaps maple syrup? Reply · 19 June, 2018

    • Caron, I have not tried them with maple syrup. I would give it a shot though. Reduce some of the milk–maybe down to 3/4 cup or 1 cup on your first test. Reply · 19 June, 2018
