  • To make the flax eggs, in a small bowl, combine the ground flax seeds and water. Stir gently and let sit for 15 minutes until a gelatinous mixture forms. 
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Grease a 9x9 pan. (If you want to easily pull out brownies, lay parchment paper down first, then grease the paper lightly.)
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the softened butter and both sugars. Beat on low speed until well incorporated - about 3-4 minutes. 
  • 4. Add in half the "egg" mixture. Beat just until combined. Then other half of "egg" mixture. Beat again. 
  • Add vanilla. Beat again just until combined.
  • To the bowl, add the flour, cocoa and salt. Stir with a flat spatula. A very thick dough will form.

**Nutritional facts are just estimates. Please utilize your own brand nutritional values to double check against our estimates. Information does not include optional caramel sauce.
* For the dairy free chocolate, you want to find a dairy free or vegan source of chocolate that is between 50-60% cocoa. Chocolates with higher percentage of cocoa, will make these brownies very bitter, so it's important to discuss this change.
- We use 2 bars and chop of the bars until roughly a little larger than chocolate chunks.
-Alternatively, you can just use the same amount of Enjoy life Chocolate Chunks.
**If you are having a hard time locating chocolate bars, you can use our homemade dairy free chocolate recipe and spread it out flat on a sheet, harden in freezer and then chop it up into pieces until you have 1 1/2 cups for this recipe. Reserve the rest for another recipe.
