Easy SunButter Brownies with a fudgy flourless brownie base and yummy sunflower seed butter swirls on top. Vegan and paleo!


  • 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp ground flax + 6 tbsp warm water)
  • 1 cup (250gOrganic SunButter (or any variety)
  • 1/2 cup (160g) maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (50gcacao or cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup more SunButter for swirling


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Combine flax egg ingredients and set aside to gel for 10 minutes.
  3. Whisk together the SunButter, maple syrup, flax eggs, and vanilla.
  4. Add cacao powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir to combine. It will be thick but if it seems too thick/dry add 1/4 cup coconut oil or almond milk.
  5. Spread into a greased baking dish (I used this 9×5″ pan)
  6. Dollop on extra SunButter and swirl with a chopstick.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350ºF.
  8. Cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing.
  9. Enjoy! Keep leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
