Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp ground flax meal
  • 1 cup very ripe mashed banana
  • 2 eggs or flax eggs - 2 tbsp flax meal + 6 tbsp hot water
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp instant coffee
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted (or other oil of choice)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line an 8” x 8” pan with foil and lightly oil or spray. If using flax eggs; combine
  2. flax meal and water in a blender. Pulse a couple times and then let rest for a few minutes.
  3. Place oats & flax in a food processor and pulse until it is a coarse flour consistency.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and puree a couple minutes until completely blended, scraping down sides as needed. There will still be little bits of flax in the batter.
  5. Spread the batter in the foil-lined pan and smooth with a spatula.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Bake until just set but not dry and cracked.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes lift the whole thing out with the foil and place on a rack until completely cool. Cut the pan into 24 squares. These should still be very fudgy.
  8. Store these in an airtight container for up to a few days, or in the fridge for much longer.
Recipe Notes

Chef’s Note: With the infusion of coffee this makes a dark, bittersweet brownie. If you want them sweeter either add an extra tablespoon of maple syrup or a pinch or two of stevia.
