These are so good and normal tasting my meat-eating family couldn’t tell the difference!!!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I am a pretty experienced baker but I have no idea what happened with these brownies. I followed the recipe carefully measuring the ingredients. I baked them and they were oily when they came out. They tasted ok whilke they were warm. Then when the were cooled that turned into hockey pucks. Completely hard. Also they were not brown like normal brownies that were black. The batter started out dark dark brown and they didn't taste burnt, so it wasn't over baking.

I cut this in half because I haven't made or eaten brownies in a very long time and was unsure if I'd even like them, now I wish I made the whole thing!  They are great.  I used coconut oil instead of canola because I didn't have any.  Also I used the egg replacer, as previously suggested.  My bf thinks they could be more chocolatey but I think they're good as is.  Whoo hoo, brownies! :>

I just made these brownies with a few changes. Instead of oil I added 3/4 cup ground flax, I used raw Agave instead of sugar, and soy milk instead of water. I ended up having to add maybe 1/2 cup more milk, probably because I didn't use oil. Also I added one banana mushed into the mixture. They turned out pretty good. I really like the banana flavor, almost like chocolate covered bananas. Overall they are good and easy to make.

I know I have posted on other brownie recipes saying they are the best...but what I really meant was, "best-recipe-I-have-until-I-find-a-better-one." Now I have officially stopped looking. This is the best and easiest brownie recipe I have ever tried. I just made them again using flax plus 3 T water, nixed the baking powder (didn't have any), and added almond extract, which I think took them to a whole new level.

Chocolateluvr, you are my hero.

Now I'm going to make some tonight!

                          :-\ Hmmm...well, they were good but ot the best. I see all these comments and wonder why everyone is saying the best. Something is missing. I added some vanilla, and next time , I will add some egg replacer.

I just made these again and dissolved the sugar in the water first (ok, 4th time making them, but it's the first time I remembered to try that).  It definitely helped with the batter clumping issue, even though the sugar didn't dissolve all the way.
I LOVE these brownies.  :)>>>

I am changing my review a bit. I just made these again, doubling the recipe because we loved them so much last time. Well, this time they turned out cakey...not like how I like my brownies to be. I realized that when I made these the first time, I had forgotten the baking powder. This time, with the baking powder, they were not fudgey at all. I think I will still make these again, but intentionally either leaving out the baking powder or greatly reducing it.
