  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup tahini hulled
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp instant coffee muddled in a splash of water
  • 1 flax egg
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/3 cup raw cacao
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 150 g dark chocolate chopped


  • Preheat oven to 160C and lightly grease a 20cm square pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk oil, tahini, vanilla extract, coffee and flax egg until combined.
  • Add coconut sugar and soy milk, whisk until combined.
  • Add almond meal, cacao, salt and baking soda and stir until combined.
  • Add 100g of the dark chocolate and mix until combined.
  • Pour batter into the prepared baking pan and spread out evenly. Scatter the remaining 50g of dark chocolate over the top.
  • Bake for 30 minutes on the middle rack of the oven.
  • To check if fully baked, insert a skewer into the centre - if a tiny bit of batter comes off that's okay, but if it's completely coated then it needs to go back into the oven for an extra 5 minutes before checking again.
  • Remove from oven and leave to cool completely before cutting - 30 minutes at a minimum. The brownies will continue to bake in the pan.
  • Cut into squares and serve with a drizzle of tahini if desired.
