Double Chocolate Brownies

These brownies are absolutely delicious - rich, chewy and amazingly chocolatey. Enjoy them cold or warm them up and serve with vegan ice cream for a luxurious dessert. They are ideal for keeping in the freezer and defrosting for use as and when. 

Ingredients: 

  • 200g vegan dark chocolate (approx. 70% cocoa solids. Eat Your Greens use Montezumas dark chocolate buttons)
  • 200ml just-boiled water
  • ½ cup of soaked raisins or sultanas (soak in boiling water for 10 mins then drain when bloated)
  • 450g soft dark brown sugar 
  • 450g gluten-free self raising flour (eg Dove's Farm. You can also use regular self-raising flour if you're not gluten intolerant) 
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 80g cocoa or raw cacao powder 
  • 180g melted coconut oil (microwave for 2 minutes or stand the jar in hot water for 5 minutes)

Method: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 175ºC (fan)/345ºF/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Using a food processor, add the chocolate and blitz until it’s a fine crumb.
  3. Add the 200ml boiling water, raisins and brown sugar. Blitz again until thoroughly combined.
  4. Add the cocoa, baking powder and melted coconut oil then pulse a few times until it’s combined. 
  5. Lastly add the flour (you may need to do this by hand in a bowl if your food processor is not very powerful as the dough can get very sticky and thick!) and pulse until thoroughly combined.
  6. Tip into your greased & lined baking tray, sprinkle large chocolate chunks intermittently on the surface then place on the middle shelf and bake for 22-24 minutes.
  7. Remove and leave to cool. Chop up the brownies into 16 rectangles and freeze! Extract for eating as desired :) They will keep for 3 months in the freezer.

Serving suggestion: vegan ice cream, cream or custard
