  • 7 ounces 200g Vegan Semi-Sweet Chocolate
  • 5 tablespoons 75g Vegan Butter
  • 2/3 cup
  • Whole Cane Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Ground Coffee or Espresso Optional but recommended
  • 2/3 cup Applesauce
  • 7 ounces 200g Vegan Semi-Sweet Chocolate
  • 1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/4 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda


  1. Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Grease and flour a 9x9 inch pan.
  2. Over medium-low heat, while constantly stirring, melt 7 ounces of chocolate, butter, sugar and coffee. Be careful not to burn the chocolate. The melted mixture will look a bit grainy due to the coffee.
  3. Allow melted mixture to cool slightly then add remaining ingredients (other 7 oz of chocolate, applesauce, flours, salt, and baking soda)  and mix together with a wooden spoon or spatula.
  4. Pour mixture into square pan and bake in oven for 30-35 minutes.
  5. Allow brownies to cool, cut into squares and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

1) Yes, this recipe calls for 7 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate TWICE. This was not a mistake. 2) If you don't like the slight grainy texture the coffee gives these brownies try making them using instant coffee. 3) Don't over mix the brownie dough. Never use a mixer to make brownies!
