How about some homemade brownies for a spooky Halloween treat?

These are gluten-free, dairy-free, and VEGAN!

They’re Spooktacularly fudgey!

And they’re super fun to bake!

Here’s a quick video:

Packed in protein and fibre, these brownies make a great Halloween treat!

To help them puff up in the oven, I like to add a bit of baking powder to the mix so it can work with the chia eggs when baking. This also helps make cutting them out into circles a little easier.

Hope you give this recipe a try. I’m sure you will enjoy it! If you do, I would love to see your recreation and learn how it went. Leave me a comment here and tag me on Instagram/Facebook/Pinterest/TikTok @demeals.ca #demeals

Spooky Spider Brownies

Recipe by Waseem HijaziCourse: Treats, DessertCuisine: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Spooky, HalloweenDifficulty: Easy


Prep time


Baking time


Cooling Time


Total time



Food processor, with dough blade. Or a regular mixing bowl.
– 12 x 12 baking pan


  • Dry Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 cups quick oats

  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 1 cup cocoa powder, sifted

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp salt

  • Wet Ingredients
  • 2 chia eggs: 2 tbsp chia seeds + 6 tbsp water, room temp.

  • 1 cup water

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup/agave

  • The Rest
  • Oil spray

  • Chocolate chips

  • Pretzels, broken into legs


  • Preheat oven to 375 F (or 190 C).
  • Add the dry ingredients to the food processor (or mixing bowl). Pulse a few times, then process on high until combined.
  • Stop, remove the lid, and scrape down the side. Mix bottom to top, to get the dry ingredients to the top. Process again on high until well combined.
  • In a small bowl, make the chia eggs. Whisk together the ground chia seeds and water, and let it sit for a minute to thicken.
  • Add the wet ingredients into the food processor. Pulse a few times, then process on high until combined.
  • Stop and scrape down the sides, mix to combine. Then process on high again until well combined.
  • Remove the blades, and empty the brownie batter into a greased baking pan. Even out the top. Then measure the circle using a small cup (without handles), to help guide the placement of the chocolate chips (spider eyes). Drop in 2 choco chips to the centre of the top of where you measure the circles. Continue on with the process all around the batter.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. Check if the centre is baked in the centre by inserting a toothpick. Should be moist and sticky, but not running. Perfectly fudgey!
  • Using the same cup from earlier, twist and turn, gently pushing down – edges around the spider eyes. Scrape out the brownie from inside the cup using a butter knife, carefully going around. Get spooky by inserting 8 broken up pretzel legs around the bottom, front and back.

    Happy Halloween!
