The most chocolaty, chewy brownies we’ve ever tasted! Quick to make and perfect for meal prepping. These super fudgy squares taste even better the next day. You’ll be amazed at how wonderfully rich they are––you might be tempted to eat the entire pan yourself!


  • ¼ cup of ground flaxseed meal
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons of soy milk (any variety)
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • ¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon of canola or vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup of vegan semisweet chocolate chips, for topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 9 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the ground flaxseed meal, soy milk, and vanilla extract. Set aside for at least 10 minutes to allow the mixture to thicken.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder and whisk until well-mixed.
  4. Add the flaxseed meal mixture and canola oil to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not overmix. The resulting mixture will be VERY THICK, more like dough than batter. Don’t worry—that’s exactly how it should be for this recipe.
  5. Spoon the thick brownie batter into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the top evenly with the chocolate chips.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes. Allow to cool fully in the pan. For the fudgiest texture, refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours before slicing and serving.


Yes, you can dive into these right out of the oven. But these brownies are best when enjoyed chilled, straight out of the fridge.
