Who doesn't love a fudgy, chocolatey, decadent vegan brownie? We certainly do! Here are 12 of the best vegan brownie recipes you can make at home.


Brownies. They’re every chocoholics dream. Traditionally made with butter, eggs and milk, they may not seem like the most vegan-friendly dessert out there.

But don’t be deceived, it is possible to make amazing vegan brownies by substituting just a few ingredients.

Eggs can be replaced with a vegan egg substitute like flax or chia seed ‘egg’, while butter and milk can be swapped for dairy-free alternatives such as soya, oat, rice, coconut or almond.

And you don’t even have to skimp on the chocolate to make brownies vegan. There are plenty of vegan chocolate brands such as NOMO, Rhythm 108, HiP, and Ombar as well as vegan versions of traditional dairy chocolate including the Galaxy vegan range.

Moreover, dark chocolate is accidentally vegan and is in our opinion the best kind of chocolate for making brownies due to its rich, intense chocolatey flavour.

So why not pick your favourite vegan brownie recipe and get baking!

7. White Chocolate and Macadamia Vegan Blondies

Ok, so this one isn’t technically a brownie, but it’s too delicious not to include!

You might think using cannellini beans in a sweet recipe is odd, but here it really works. The beans create a creamy texture and add a hit of protein and fibre.

9. Vegan Blondies with White Chocolate and Tofu

Pump up the protein content of your vegan brownies by using tofu as a vegan egg substitute. It gives these blondies a wonderfully chewy texture but because of its mild flavour, you won’t taste the tofu.
