  • Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.
  • In a large, microwave-safe mixing bowl, combine ¾ cup chocolate chips, vegan butter, and coconut oil. Cook for 1 minute. Set aside until the chips have melted. Stir to combine. 
  • Add the sugar and give it a good stir. Then add the applesauce, milk, water, cornstarch, ground flaxseed, and vanilla. Stir to combine. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl stir together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Pour the flour mixture into the bowl with the chocolate ingredients along with the remaining chocolate chips. Stir until just combined (with no more big clumps of flour). Do not over-mix.
  • Spread the batter into the prepared baking dish. Bake 40 to 45 minutes. For more gooey brownies, remove them from the oven at 40 minutes. Otherwise, cook for 45 minutes.
  • Let the brownies cool completely before slicing.
