So fudgy, chocolatey and chewy you will want a second piece before even finishing your first one!
If you are in need of a chocolate fix, look no further, these brownies will be your medicine.
Oat and rice flours make the base, then we have coconut sugar to sweeten, cocoa powder for extra flavor, oil for richness, and finally melted dark chocolate.
Please go with high-quality dark chocolate, it will have a huge impact on the final result. For the percentage of cacao, I recommend 70% if you want your brownies chocolatey and not too sweet. If using 50-60% dark chocolate, you might want to lower a bit the amount of coconut sugar.
While optional, I highly recommend adding dark chocolate chunks to the batter. It adds a nice crunch once your brownies are cold. Let's be honest, fudgy + crunchy is the best.
Now if you want to make these extra special, stir in some almond butter, or some praline butter to give the brownies a nutty flavor.
Last but not least: refrigeration. This step must not be omitted if you want to enjoy the full potential of these brownies. Once cold, the brownies get a super fudgy, chewy, and dense texture that makes them even more addicting! Do not miss this part!
I hope you will love the texture and flavor of these fudgy brownies! They are rich in chocolate, tender, and super easy to prepare.

Extra Fudgy Vegan Brownies (GF)
- ¾ cup oat flour
- ¼ cup white rice flour
- ⅔ cup coconut sugar
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup almond milk
- 6 tablespoon oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup dark chocolate chips or chunks
- ⅓ cup dark chocolate chunks or chips, optional
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a 6x8-inch baking dish or baking pan with parchment paper.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: oat flour, white rice flour, coconut sugar, cocoa powder, and salt.
- Melt the dark chocolate over a double boiler. Once melted, remove from heat and set aside.
- Add the almond milk, oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients and whisk until fully combined. Pour in the melted chocolate and stir until combined. The batter will thicken, this is normal. At this point, you can add the dark chocolate chunks for more texture. Make sure the batter is not too warm before stirring in the chocolate chunks, otherwise they might melt.
- Transfer the brownie batter to the prepared pan and bake for about 25 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool completely. Once cold, transfer to the refrigerator for at least 3 hours before cutting into squares.
- I recommend removing the brownies from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving. They will still be fudgy and just tender!
- Brownies will keep for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

What type of oil wold you recommend using? Thanks!
I recommend a neutral oil like sunflower oil. Melted coconut oil might work as well.
This sounds very yummy! But I am a bit confused as you mention adding chocolate chips or chunks twice, but in the recipe they only get added once. Could you please explain?
Hi Monique, the 1/2 of chocolate chips/chunks is melted and mixed into the batter. The other 1/3 cup is optional, not melted and stirred into the batter for more texture.
Thomas, these photos are amazing, and this receipe totally decadent... !! Thanks for sharing 🙂
What would you say would be a good substitute for rice flour? Can I use almond flour or even regular all purpose flour?
You might want to try using all-purpose flour, although I haven't tried myself.
there are different types of white rice flour ,which would you recommand?
There are different types of rice flour (brown, glutinous, etc). Here I use white rice flour.

This is super cool man. I’m wondering if you’ve experimented with oatmilk instead?
Devan [DC Chef]
Any plant-based milk will work 🙂
Hey Thank you for the recipe ! You haven't mentioned usage of any raising agent (soda/apple cider vinegar etc.) won't the brownie be too lumpy without this?
also can I skip adding the milk for a super dark version?
You need milk for the texture, otherwise the batter will be too thick.
That's correct, no raising agent here, that's what makes them extra fudgy 🙂
Hi...this is an awesome recipe..just few doubts to be cleared. Can normal.milk ne substituted for almond milk and can brown sugar be used instead of coconut sugar?
Yes you can use regular milk and brown sugar, no problem!
Thans alot..will.surely make.
Hi...another doubt...can butter be used instead of oil...know that am substituting many things....but would like to know if it's possible.
I think melted butter might work, but with so many substitutes I'm not totally sure about the results.
I doubled this recipe and it came out so awesomely good! I’m not a vegan, but I appreciate good food, & these are excellent! Even my meat & potatoes husband loved them!
Haha, awesome! 🙂
Can we take the brownie out after exactly 25 minutes it is there a test or way to check if it’s done as every oven is different.
You can use a toothpick to check doneness but I found 25 minutes to be perfect 🙂
These are 5-star restaurant-quality delicious. They are super rich, so it's okay to serve them bite-sized! Would also make an amazing fudge-y chocolate cake with some icing on top!
Thanks so much Theresa! 🙂
Would this recipe work WITHOUT the melted chocolate? How would that impact the ratios of other ingredients? It looks super yummy but I don't eat chocolate bar chocolate! Thanks very much 🙂
I'm afraid it won't, the texture and flavor won't be as good I'm afraid.
Which type of chocolate chips do you use in this recipe? Semisweet, bittersweet, unsweetened? The latter is all I generally have on hand. Thanks--for this and all your other vegan recipes.
I used semi-sweet chocolate chips (50% sugar).
This recipe was fabulous! I made a few substitutions/alterations: I didn’t have any almond milk & I didn’t want to double-broil the chocolate chips, so I boiled 1cup water in the microwave then put the 1/2c chocolate chips in, let it sit for a few minutes, and then stirred until smooth; I added a heaping Tsp of almond butter to the mixture (mixed until smooth). And I subbed the rice flour for whole grain wheat flour. I sprinkled the top of the batter with the chocolate chips before baking. They turned out so good, and they’re exactly what I have been wanting in a brownie recipe <3
Oh, I also used raw cane sugar bc I didn’t have any coconut sugar
Happy to hear the brownies still turned delicious with the substitutions!
Thanks for your rating Emily 🙂
