What you need:

  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 250g self raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 60g cocoa powder
  • 300g coconut sugar
  • 100ml almond milk
  • 130g coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp Meridian Almond butter


  1. Pour 150ml warm water over the ground flax seed, stir and set aside.

  2. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan and line a 20cm x 20cm oven dish with grease-proof paper.

  3. In a bowl combine the flour, salt, cocoa and sugar.

  4. Add the almond milk, coconut oil and flax-seed mixture. Mix well and pour into the prepared tin.

  5. Drizzle the almond butter over the top of the brownie and use the tip of a knife or a skewer to swirl into a pattern.

  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the top is firm but the inside is still squidgy. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes then use the grease-proof paper to lift onto a cooling rack.

  7. When cool, cut into 16 pieces and serve or keep in an airtight tin.

Top tip: The trick to getting a squidgy brownie is to take it out of the oven just before you think it’s cooked. The top should be firm but it should still have a very slight wobble in the center.
