  • 2 tbsp. ground flax seeds + 1/4 cup almond or other non dairy milk, whisked and allowed to sit for 10 minutes
  • 1/2 cup Earth Balance or other vegan margarine softened
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup almond or other non-dairy milk (this is in addition to the milk that you mix with flax seeds)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate hazelnut butter use my recipe or a commercial brand, like Justin's
  • 1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and spray or grease a 9x9 baking pan.
  2. Mix first five ingredients (up to sugar) in mixing bowl. Add all other ingredients except for hazelnut butter and hazelnuts. Spread batter evenly in baking pan.
  3. Next, using a knife, toothpick, chopstick, or whatever works, swirl hazelnut butter into brownie batter. I tried to get all fancy with it, this isn't really necessary as the color blends right in with the batter.
  4. Top with hazelnuts and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool before cutting into squares.
