Chocolate Raspberry Brownie


  • 4 flax eggs
  • 6 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 cup cacao
  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup flaked almonds


  1. Make flax egg by mixing each tablespoon of flax meal with 3 tablespoons water per egg.  Once prepared set aside.
  2. Melt coconut oil and set aside.
  3. Place all ingredients in a bowl including the flax eggs and mix with a wooden spoon. The mixture will be quite thick.
  4. Once it’s well combined, add chocolate chips and mix again.
  5. Use a rectangle slice tin (about 25cm long) and line with baking paper. If you want your brownies thicker then use a smaller tin. A square tin works well too.
  6. Place the brownie mixture in the tin and spread out evenly.
  7. Place fresh raspberries on top pushing them into the mixture about halfway. Sprinkle with flaked almonds.
  8. Bake in oven at 180 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.  As all ovens operate a little differently, you’ll be best guided by placing a skewer into the brownie and when it comes out clean the brownie is ready.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are flax eggs, and can I use regular eggs instead?

Flax eggs are a vegan egg substitute made by mixing flaxseed meal with water. In this recipe, they act as a binding agent. You can use regular eggs if you're not following a vegan diet. Replace each flax egg with one chicken egg.

Are these chocolate raspberry brownies gluten-free?

Yes, these brownies are gluten-free. They use almond meal instead of traditional wheat flour, making them suitable for those with gluten sensitivities or preferences.

Can I add nuts to the brownie mixture, and if so, which nuts work best?

Yes, you can certainly add nuts to these brownies for added texture and flavor. Hazelnuts and walnuts are both excellent choices, as they complement the chocolate and raspberry flavors nicely. Simply chop the nuts and fold them into the batter before baking.

How do I know when the brownies are done baking?

To check if the brownies are done, insert a skewer or toothpick into the center of the brownie. When it comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs (not wet batter), the brownies are ready. Baking times may vary slightly depending on your oven, so it's a good indicator to use.

Can I store these brownies, and if so, how should I store them?

Yes, you can store these brownies. Allow them to cool completely, then cut them into squares. Store them in an airtight container at room temperature for a day or two, or in the refrigerator for longer freshness. If you prefer a firmer texture, refrigeration is a good option.
