Chocolate Apple Brownies

By McDonald, T.  |  Date 29th of April 2024

Although I'm not a great chocolate fan, occasionally, I do like some brownies.  I also like apples, so when I found this recipe, I just had to give it a go.  The original used 2 eggs, which I have to change; thus, I went for flax egg.


  • The coffee granules are often used with chocolate because it brings out the chocolate flavour. 
  • This is the first time I have made this recipe, so I have no idea if the flax egg will work considering there is no flour or oats. 


Makes 6 brownies.

Time 25 minutes or less.


  • Bramley Cooking Apples x 360 g (about 2 apples)
  • Flax eggs x 2 (each egg is 1 tbsp of milled flax seed and 3 tbsp of water) or egg replacement.
  • Cocoa powder x 2 tsp
  • Coffee granules x 1/2 tsp
  • Baking powder x 1 tsp
  • Dark chocolate chips x 25g


  1. Peel and core the apples. Now dice them and put them in the blender and blend to a coarse paste.
  2. Not including the chocolate chips, add all the other ingredients to the blender and blend until evenly mixed.
  3. Grease the baking dish and add the mixture. Spread the mixture out evenly and sprinkle the chocolate chips on top.  Push some of them in a bit if you need to or want to. Even it out again if you need to. 
  4. Bake for 16 minutes in a preheated oven at 170ÂȘC. 
  5. When ready, take out of the oven and leave to cool for 5 to 10 minutes, and then carefully use a spatula to free the brownies from the side of the dish.  Leave to cool for another 30 – 40 minutes while still in the dish.
  6. Cut into 6 squares and either eat them as they are or serve with vegan cream or vegan ice cream. 

Blend to a paste.

Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.


Although the brownies tasted fine, they were much too moist.  They held together well, so maybe they just needed a bit longer in the oven.  Next time, however, I plan to use the egg replacement from Orgran and leave it in the oven for a bit longer.
