Brownies

What you need: 

2 cups flour (I use enriched and whole wheat), divided
1 cup water
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips, optional

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and grease an 11x7" pan. Boil water and 1/2 cup of the flour over low heat, stirring constantly, until it reaches the consistency of a thin gluey paste. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
2. Mix vegan brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, vanilla, cocoa and oil. Then add the flour and water mixture. Mix well.
3. Add the remaining 1 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, nuts, and chocolate chips.
4. Spread mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a knife can be inserted and come out clean.
This was a really easy, and really tasty recipe. I gave some to my friends and they fell in love with them. They keep asking me to make more. I thought of maybe putting some chocolate frosting on them, but they were perfect without it. Enjoy.'

SO HOW'D IT GO?

These are the best!!! In the past when making vegan brownies I ended up with cake-like textures, but not with these.  Perfectly chewy around the edges and fudgey in the center just like my mom makes, only vegan!!! 8)

i am having trouble posting a photo for this recipe... any one know why i can't....when i try to it says 0 uploads successful

Maybe your photo is too big? Is it taking a long time, and then not working? That's what I would say..I always resize my photos before uploading, and it goes really quickly. i use a program called IrfanView. But, you could also do it with gimpshop...I'm sure there are lots.

These were fantastic!  I only cook vegan at home, so I still remember what real brownies taste like, and these are just as good!  Probably healthier too with the wheat flour!  I halved the recipe and used 1/2 wheat flour, 1/4 regular, and 1/4 wheat pastry flour.  I also used agave nectar instead of sugar and halved the oil.
Yum yum yum.  It is taking all my willpower not to eat the entire pan right now.  I may have to send some to my new neighbor as a welcoming gift just so I don't eat it all :P

I must say, it was sugarskulls photograph that drew me to this recipe.  The comments sound so positive though, that I am going to try it myself.  Proof of what a good photograph can do!  I'll be back to comment when the job is done.

Your heat might have been too high or something..I would just try more water, and whisk it until it thins out (maybe off the heat). : )
