Dry Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Ragi Flour
  • 2 tbsp Flax Seeds Powder (I powdered my flax seeds in a mixer/grinder)
  • 1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 10 Cashew Nuts (Optional)
  • 10 Almonds (Optional)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup Honey / Maple Syrup (Vegans can use substitutions)
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Warm Water
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Topping (Optional)

  • 1 tbsp Ganache/Chocolate Sauce/Peanut Butter
  • 1 tbsp Chocolate Chips
  • 1 tbsp Chopped Almonds/Walnuts/Pecans


  • Preheat the oven to 180 Deg C
  • Prepare a square tin by greasing it and lining it with parchment paper.
  • In the mean time, add about 2-3 tablespoon of water in the flax seed powder. Mix it and set it aside for 4-5 minute until it forms a gel like mixture. Keep it aside
  • Powder the Cashews and the Almonds.
  • Sift the Ragi flour, along with the Cocoa Powder and the Baking powder and salt. 
  • In another bowl, add the Coconut oil, honey, brown sugar, Vanilla Extract and mix well.
  • Add the flax gel to the wet mix and make a lump free batter. 
  • Add the dry ingredients along with Cashew and Almond powder, to the wet mix slowly and mix well so that all is incorporated well and there is no dry mixture left.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean but has a bit crumbs on it. Mine were done in 20 minutes.
  • Let it rest for 10 mins. After 10 min, lift the parchment paper or remove the brownie and let it cool on a wire rack.

  • One can top it up with some melted chocolate or ganache or peanut butter.
  • Serve it warm or cold with a glass of milk/coffee or with some whipped cream/ Ice Cream.


  • Coconut oil can be replaced with Vegetable Oil.
  • Ragi can be replaced with whole wheat flour
  • Honey can be replaced with Any Sugar or Jaggery powder
