Dairy-Free Brownies (Vegan + Gluten-Free)

Dairy-Free Brownies (Vegan + Gluten-Free)

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 6 - 9 servings 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


These healthier dairy-free brownies are also gluten-free, vegan, egg-free, oil-free, and refined sugar-free.


Units Scale

Additional Optional Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Non-Dairy Chocolate Chips/Chunks
  • Additional Nut/Seed Butter
  • Flaky Sea Salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the ground flax and water together to create a flax “egg”. Set aside for 5 minutes to thicken.
  3. In a large bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  4. In a medium bowl combine the coconut sugar, almond butter, non-dairy milk, and vanilla extract.
  5. Add the bowl of wet ingredients along with the flax “egg” to the bowl of dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  6. Optional: Mix in any chocolate chips or chopped chocolate pieces if desired.
  7. Pour the mixture into an 8 x 8 inch or 9 x 9 inch baking pan that has been lined with parchment paper or greased. Use a spoon or spatula to smooth the surface of the brownie mixture until it is evenly distributed within the pan.
  8. If desired, drizzle additional almond butter on the surface of the brownies then use a butter knife or chopstick to create a swirl pattern. Sprinkle on any additional chopped chocolate or chocolate chips if preferred.
  9. Bake for 20 – 23 minutes. Allow at least 10 minutes of cooling before cutting the brownies. Sprinkle with flaky salt, if desired, and serve.


  • *Oat Flour: You can use store-bought oat flour or blend oats into a fine flour. Use certified gluten-free oat flour/oats if preferred.
  • **Almond Butter: You can use another type of nut/seed butter as a substitution. I prefer to buy almond butter that doesn’t contain added sugar, oil, or salt.
  • ***Cocoa Powder: I prefer Dutch-Process cocoa powder because it has a smooth chocolate flavor and it allows more moisture when used in baked goods. Using Dutch-process cocoa powder in this recipe makes the brownies even more gooey and fudgy!
