Vegan Chocolate Brownies

Today morning our kitchen was smelling of these lovely chocolate brownies, which I baked for a bake sale organised for one of the charities I support. I decided to bake something vegan as some of my friends follow a plant-based diet. This was my first attempt at making vegan brownies and they went down a treat at the bake sale. So chuffed! :) 
I have used some coconut flour too in the recipe but you can use just plain flour. 


200 gms plain flour
50 gms of coconut flour
300 gms unrefined muscovado sugar
70 gms 100% unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 and 1/2 cups of boiling water
1/2 cup of cooking oil (I have used coconut oil)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup of walnuts, chopped
Desiccated coconut for sprinkling over (optional)


Preheat the oven to 180 C

In a large bowl. add the sugar and boiling water and combine. Add the vegetable oil, vanilla extract and salt and  mix well

Sieve in the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder to the wet mixture and using a whisk, mix it all together. I used an electric whisk

Pour the mixture into a 9x13 inch greased baking dish. Scatter the chopped walnuts and bake for 25-30 minutes. Insert a toothpick to check if it is cooked. 

Sprinkle over the desiccated coconut.  

Cool before cutting into pieces.
