Vegan Blueberry Swirl Brownies

You know what always makes me happy and puts me in a good mood?  Listening to some good music and baking brownies!  There is nothing quite like the heavenly aroma of chocolaty goodness that fills your home when you bake them!  So I decided that I was going to make some last weekend and enjoy the experience like I always do. I Never usually just bake plain chocolate brownies though, I like to do add ins, and this time I decided that blueberries and chocolate sounded like a heavenly combo so I made Vegan Blueberry Swirl Brownies!

They turned out pretty darn delicious!  These are nice and fudgy the way I like my brownies!  They are super rich with dark chocolate flavor thanks to the flour to cacao powder ratio being 1:1.  I used whole wheat pastry flour for these, but you can use all purpose flour if you prefer or even gluten free all purpose flour if you wanted to make them gluten free.  For the fat I used avocado oil because it is what I had on hand, but melted coconut oil would work as well.  For the egg replacement these use flax eggs which work pretty well I find.  Flax eggs are ground flax mixed with filtered water in case you do not know what they are. I use them a lot in recipes because I always have flax seeds on hand.

The brownie batter tasted amazing even before baking!  Yes, I had to sample it!  I swirled some of Eric's Dad's home made blueberry jam into it and it was perfect!  I also sprinkled dark chocolate chips over the brownies at the last minute for extra chocolaty goodness.  Because one can never have too much chocolate in brownies! They smelled so heavenly while baking!

Once they were cool enough to cut and I was able to try them they were super delicious!  Rich and fudgy with intense dark chocolate flavor, sweet blueberries and smooth dark chocolate!  If you are in the mood for something decadent and delicious definitely give these Vegan Blueberry Swirl Brownies a try!  Especially if you want to be in an instant good mood!
