Valentine’s Day Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes


This is perhaps the best brownie recipe I have tried to date. With that being said, it is unfortunately not vegan friendly. The recipe calls for 4 eggs and a lot of butter. Granted the butter is an easy substitute. Usually anything over 2 eggs gets to be tricky when subbing with flax or Ener-G powder. It’s definitely worth a try though! Until then, the recipe will be vegetarian.


– 1 1/4 c unsalted butter
– 2 1/4 c sugar
– 1 1/2 c cocoa powder
– 2 tsp vanilla
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 1 Tbls water
– 4 eggs, chilled
– 2/3 c flour
– 1 1/2 c walnuts
– handful of chocolate chips

1. Melt the butter, stir, and keep butter heating until brown specks start to form
2. Remove from heat, add sugar, cocoa, vanilla, salt, and water. Let cool for 5 minutes
3. Preheat oven to 325F and line cupcake tin with liners
4. Whisk eggs one by one into the cooled mixture until you have a glossy, unified consistency
5. Fold in the flour and stir for 1-2 minutes
6. Next, add the walnuts and scoop into cupcake liners
7. Top with chocolate chips and push the chips into the center of the cupcake
8. Bake for 15-20 minutes
9. Let cool before removing from the tin
