These chocolate brownies are deliciously fudgy. If you prefer, you can omit the sea salt or try adding some chopped nuts for variation. The flaxseeds act as a binder.

Makes 16 brownies
Cook time: 40 min


2 tbsp ground flaxseeds
150g dark chocolate chips or chocolate, broken into small pieces (70% cocoa solids)
125g vegan spread, suitable for baking
200g golden caster sugar
100g plain flour

Essential kit

You will need: a hand-held electric whisk and an 18–20cm square cake tin lined with baking paper.


Heat the oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan/350ºF/Gas mark 4.

Grease and line the base of an 18–20cm square cake tin with baking paper.

In a small bowl, combine the flaxseeds with 5 tablespoons of cold water, stir well and set to one side.

Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring occasionally, or in the microwave.

Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

In a large mixing bowl, using a hand-held electric whisk, beat together the spread and sugar until pale and fluffy.

Whisk in the chocolate mixture and flax ‘eggs’ and beat until well combined, then using a metal spoon, stir in the flour and 1 teaspoon of salt.

Pour into the prepared tin, sprinkle with a little extra salt, if you like, and bake for 20 minutes until just set – the centre will still be slightly gooey. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack. When completely cold, remove the baking paper and cut into squares.
