A flaxseed chocolate brownie that may change your mind about flaxseed as these are moist, tasty and not overpowering with the flavour of flaxseed. The bonus is that flaxseed is just so good for you, you can happily enjoy a healthy brownie.
These flaxseed brownies are a great low carb brownie with a lovely chewy, moist texture. As with most brownies they are much better the next day when they develop a more fudge like texture. The cream in the recipe helps this too. However, if you wanted to omit the cream, I would recommend that you use coconut milk or cream instead.
I played around with the basic recipe and made 3 batches, one plain, one with raspberries and one with walnuts. All were as moreish as each other! Even the Chief Taster enjoyed these despite his aversion to flaxseed.

Another great recipe! It came out really good. Will be making this again. I just had to add a little bit more chocolate chips as my husband loves rich chocolate texture. I also added a bit more of baking powder. I
So glad you enjoyed it!
I love your recipes. I made these brownies & found them to be a little dry. Could it be I needed to add more water or that I should have cooked them for less time?
Perhaps you could have added a bit more water.
Love these! I've been craving brownies and these satisfied my craving. They're not too sweet like the regular ones but their yummy. Even my little ones liked them. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
Glad you enjoy them!
I loooove this recipe. It is at it's best cooled. I make it per directions except add about 8 drops vanilla stevia also along with the vanilla in recipe for a little extra sweetness. The flax meal gives it a great texture and you would never know it had flax. I have not had to add the water. This is the best brownie recipe I have tried, and I have tried several trying to find a decent brownie. Thank you!!
Huzzah! So glad you enjoyed it!
Thanks for the recipe! So glad it does not have psyllium. So many recipes us it and I am allergic. Apparently is a very common allergy too so the specialist said!
I never knew that! Enjoy the recipe
Hi can I use an alternative to erthyritol?
Xylitol (sometimes I use this when I cannot buy erthyritol).
Am a little unsure about adding the additional cup of erthyritol mentioned at the end of the recipe
You can always try it without...I thought the same but tried it and liked it. I have not tried it without it yet though. Let me know how it works out. 🙂
