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.'

This recipe was amazing.  Period.  Just perfect.  I made it at 150% volume in a 13x9 and it was gorgeous.

These brownies were so delicious!  I've never tried vegan brownies before, so I'm glad my first ones turned out so well.  They were really moist and delicious.

fantastic recipe! i love that it can be made using common pantry ingredients, you don't even need soy milk. i even made this with gluten free flour, cos my housemate can't have gluten and they turned out great.

pretty good brownies; fluffy, not very rich or dense.  the flour-water part was thicker than I expected.  I'd like to try something that calls for chocolate soymilk or melted chocolate to get a richer brownie, but this definitely satisfied everybody's chocolate craving and the batter was delicious.  (a 9x9 pan for 25 minutes worked well for me.)

Why would anyone want to make brownies with animal products when you can make them like this? Freaking amazing! I will be making these again. Thanks for a great recipe!

THANK YOU! after many failed attempts at other vegan brownies, this one did it! Amazing.. moist-non gooey-rich and just like regular brownies.  Just wonderful. Covered with a regular cream cheese icing even though it doesn't need it. Thanks again!

* Tip *

Add the flour to the water beore it is heated. Then slowly heat the mixture while stirring. This prevents the lumps.
These brownies were the tops. My non vegan family loves them and so do I. They look and taste great.
