This delish recipe for Fudgy Vegan Brownies is a decadent treat that’s sure to delight. This vegan treat is just as yummy (maybe even more!) as any dairy counterpart.


  • 200g dairy-free dark chocolate, chopped
  • 80g coconut oil
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond or soy milk
  • ½ cup dairy-free chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (or 165°C fan bake). Line skillet with baking paper. Half fill a small pot with water and bring to the boil.
  2. Place chocolate in a medium heat-proof bowl with coconut oil. Place bowl on top of pot of water (to create a double boiler) and heat, until chocolate is melted. Make sure bowl is not touching water. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder and sugar together.
  4. Add vanilla extract, melted chocolate and almond/soy milk to bowl. Fold with a wooden spoon, until smooth and combined. Add chocolate chips and mix gently.
  5. Transfer brownie batter to prepared skillet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Try not to over bake or brownies will turn cakey.
  6. Serve brownies with your favourite dairy-free ice cream.
