Keep the butter over the heat, making sure to stir it regularly until it starts to look slightly darker in colour.

Be warned, vegan butter does not brown as much so don’t worry if it’s not dark golden. The butter can start to spit if it gets too hot so be careful.

3. Once the butter has browned a little, pour it into a bowl and add in the light brown sugar. Stir the mixture until they are combined.

4. In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix them together. Then, add in the butter and sugar mixture along with the plant milk and vanilla extract.

5. Add in the Lyle’s Golden Syrup until all the ingredients are fully incorporated. Add in the chocolate chips and nuts and stir until they’re evenly distributed.

6. Place the batter into the brownie tin and spread it into an even layer.

7. Place it in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown, leaving it to cool fully before removing it from the tin. Then, drizzle over the extra melted chocolate. Once set, cut it into nine squares and serve.
