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 was my first time making brownies, and they turned out really good! I didn't have any cocoa though, so instead I used hot chocolate powder xD. And I melted chocolate chips on the top after taking the brownies out of the oven. Yummmm.

I changed these a bit to make them healthier. I used 1 c. whole wheat pastry flour, subbed applesauce for the oil, and cut back the sugar a bit. They were still really, really good! Not as good as a fattening gooey brownie of course, but for a healthy-ish brownie they were pretty tasty.

I really liked these while they were still warm. I made some vegan icing i found on this site to top them off. I added almonds instead of walnuts.  My husband and i went crazy while they were still warm. But later and the next day when they were at room temp the flour mixture became overwhelming in taste. So serve warm and gooey and definately with icing.

These are the first vegan brownies I have attempted and thought they were great! I thought they were so much better after a day in a tuperware container, they were way more dense than when they came out. At first they were very cake like, but that changed over time. I added walnuts and chocolate chips, soo good!

Sooooooo Soooooooooo YUMMY!  my friends & i agree... the BEST BROWNIE RECIPE.... EVER!!  Moist, not too cakey... not overly gooey... Perfect.
I added dried cherries & chopped peanuts....  I think they would be really good with peanuts & caramel... kinda like a snickers bar.
Thank You very much! :)>>>

These were great! I use whole wheat flour and they came out just fine. I didn't have any chocolate chips on hand, but that didn't take away from the recipe at all. I dusted the top with powdered sugar and they turned out beautifully. Thanks for the awsome recipe :)

Very good.  Even my carniverous family members enjoyed these.

I boiled the water in a kettle and then added it to the flour.  I also used unsweetened chocolate bars instead of cocoa powder.  I think that helped to make them softer.  I also used almond extract instead of vanilla.  I'm a huge almond extract fan.

Yeah, just try having it on the heat for a few seconds...just enough to mix together. You might need to add a bit more water to smooth it out. Whisk it!
