Ingredients & Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for eggless brownies. Scroll down to the recipe card for the full recipe.
The flax eggs are imperative to these gluten free Vegan brownies. Do not substitute chia eggs or a Vegan egg replacement. If you are looking for brownies with eggs, check out my Gluten Free Dairy Free Brownies.
Use Vegan dark chocolate chips. My favorite brand is Enjoy life dark chocolate chips. They melt well and taste great.
Any creamy nut butter works. I recommend using creamy almond butter or creamy cashew butter because they are more neutral tasting than peanut butter.
Pure maple syrup can be replaced by honey. I do not recommend using a granulated sweetener in place of the maple syrup.

How to Make
First, make flax eggs. Combine ground flaxseed and water in a small bowl. Let sit for 15 minutes to gel together.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line an 8 inch by 8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
Melt coconut oil in microwave. Stir in chocolate chips until smooth and creamy.
Add melted chocolate and remaining wet ingredients to a mixing bowl.
Then, stir in dry ingredients.
Fold in dark chocolate chips.
Spread batter into one even layer in pan.
Next, bake for 18 to 21 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Finally, cool eggless brownies fully before slicing and serving.
Expert Tips & Tricks
Allow flax eggs to fully set. This takes about 15 minutes. They will start to resemble a gel (similar to an egg white) texture.
Fully melt coconut oil before stirring in chocolate chips. Then, stir until all chocolate is melted and smooth.
Use a creamy nut butter. Do not use crunchy nut butter unless you want nuts in your brownies.
Bake until middle is just set. Do not overbake!
These eggless brownies are fragile. Slice and serve only when completely cooled.
Additional Mix Ins & Flavors
These egg free brownies are a great starting place for additional mix ins!
Add in walnuts, pecans or sliced almonds for some added crunch.
Add in a drop of mint extract for mint chocolate Vegan brownies.
