Vegan Blackberry Brownies Recipe

Vegan Blackberry Brownies

Blackberries and dark chocolate – honestly, is there anything better? This combo is neck-and-neck with my love for lemon and lavender. I found this recipe by Food Mouth and melted into the floor just looking at the photography. I needed to veganize it ASAP, and so there. That is what I did.

The Recipe

Oven: 350 F
Bake Time: 25-30 min

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup Earth Balance butter
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup extra dark cocoa powder
  • 2 flax eggs (or 2 tbs ground flaxseed + 6 tbs water)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 6 oz. container blackberries

To make:

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Line a 9-inch square pan with parchment paper or cooking spray
  • Heat up Earth Balance butter, then add both sugars and dark chocolate powder – mix until smooth
  • Add flax egg and vanilla, mix well
  • Stir in your dry ingredients until combined
  • Fold blackberries into brownie mix
  • Add batter to pan and bake for 25-30 minutes (I like mine on the gooey side, so 25 was enough!!)
  • Allow to cool before sinking your teeth into these suckers

This is probably one of my favorite desserts that I have made within the last year. Holy blackberries, they are amazing. Rich and berry, berry gooey – the best kinds of desserts always are.

  1. These were totally delicious. I am not vegan, so I did add chocolate chunks to them, plus I used twice as many blackberries as suggested and did applesauce instead of flax eggs (because it was most convenient for me). They were awesome and I already can’t wait to make them again!

  2. 6 tbs ground flaxseed + 2 tbs water does not equal two flax eggs according to other recipes. However, the first time i make a recipe, I follow it exactly.
    It turned out very dry and crumbly. Do you think it was because of too much flax meal and not enough water? A flax egg is customarily 1 Tbsp flax meal and 3 Tbsp water.

    • Debra – thank you for pointing this out!! This is definitely a typo – I am so sorry about that. I am going to change it right now. My apologies :(

      That is definitely the reason why it came out too dry.
