Preheat the oven to 170°C, and grease the tin with oil (not listed).
Put the ingredients marked ● in a bowl and mix well with a whisk. (This is so you don't have to sift).
Put the ingredients marked ★ in another bowl, and mix well with a whisk.
Add the dry ingredients from the first bowl to the second, and fold in (don't knead it).
Add the coconut flakes to the bowl and mix.
Pour the batter into the greased tin, and rap it against the counter a few times to even out the surface.
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 170°C (when an inserted toothpick/skewer comes out clean, they're done.)
Story Behind this Recipe
After some trial and error, I came up with this recipe for vegan brownies.
The cooking time will vary depending on your oven, so check the brownies occasionally and adjust as necessary. This time I added coconut powder, but traditional brownie recipes actually call for walnuts! (lol).
