  1. Step 1:

    Prepare the flax egg by mixing 2 tbsp of ground flax seed with 3 tbsp of warm water. Leave to one side so it activates.

  2. Step 2:

    Pre-heat the oven to 180’C (160°C fan, gas mark 4) and line a square 20cm baking tin with baking paper.

    Top Tip

    If you make the baking paper stick out of the tin on all sides, it’s easier to lift the brownies out once they are baked.

  3. Step 3:

    Weigh out your gluten free flour and baking powder into a bowl. Mix well and leave to one side.

  4. Step 4:

    Chop your dark chocolate finely and place into a large bowl, along with the cacao powder and instant coffee. Add the boiling water and stir well. This will melt the chocolate and make a thick mixture.

  5. Step 5:

    Melt the coconut oil and add to the chocolate mixture, along with the Dark Muscovado sugar and your flax seed eggs (they will have turned thick and sticky by then). Mix gently.

  6. Step 6:

    Slowly add the flour and baking powder mix into the chocolate batter, mixing together gently.

    Top Tip

    Be careful not to mix the batter too much as it will make your brownies too stodgy.

  7. Step 7:

    Using a teaspoon, dollop your peanut butter across the top of your brownie batter, then swirl into your brownie mixture. This will create a marble effect on top of your brownies once baked.

  8. Step 8:

    Transfer the batter to your prepared tin and bake for 20 mins, or until a skewer comes out clean.

    Top Tip

    Leave the brownies to cool in the tin before removing them.
