  • 1/4 cup coconut oil plus extra for greasing the pan
  • 3 ounces ~1/2 c semi sweet chocolate chips (I like Enjoy Life)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup aquafaba liquid from a can of black beans—your can will probably have closer to 2/3 or 3/4 c—make sure you measure
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee
  • 3/4 cup all purpose white flour
  • 4 1/2 ounces 3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 inch baking pan* with extra coconut oil and set aside.
  • In a medium sauce pan over medium-low heat, melt 3 ounces of chocolate chips and 1/4 c coconut oil.
  • When melted, remove from heat. Add in brown sugar, maple syrup and pinch of salt and whisk together.
  • Measure out the aquafaba and whisk with a small whisk until slightly foamy.
  • Pour the aquafaba into the chocolate mix and whisk together.
  • Add vanilla, cinnamon and instant coffee and whisk to incorporate.
  • Add the flour to the chocolate mixture and mix well. Fold in 4 1/2 ounces of chocolate chips.
  • Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 35 minutes. The brownies will be moist but set.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for about an hour before serving.
  • These taste delicious topped with my Cinnamon Coconut Whipped Cream! Enjoy!


I find that they keep their best texture when stored in the fridge—they stay extra fudgey this way!
* I have baked these in ceramic and glass pans.
