Vegan Brownies with Walnuts

Vegan Brownies with Walnuts

I love brownies, like really love brownies. With a scoop of coconut ice cream I am pretty much in heaven. Usually I go for the straight forward brownie, but recently I have ventured out and starting putting things in my vegan brownies, like these walnuts. Simple but delicious. Toasted pecans, or hazelnuts would also be great. I also like a fluttering of sea salt on top. Just to bring out the chocolate and get some of the sweet/salty action happening.
