Vegan Brownies

What you need: 

1/4 cup canola oil
1/3 cup water
1 cup organic sugar
1 cup organic unbleached flour
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix wet ingredients in large bowl, then dump in all the dry. Don't over mix.
2. Bake for about 20-25 minutes.
They're supposed to look gooey! You can even add your favorite vegan chocolate chips, add coconut, or nuts!
These are so good and normal tasting my meat-eating family couldn’t tell the difference!!!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Hands down, the BEST brownies I've ever had, vegan or otherwise. I had the same batter consistency issue though, like super oily cookie dough. I think I'm gonna cut down on the oil next time, and maybe add a bit of chocolate soy milk? Idk, I'll play w/ it next time. Oh, side note... these were WAY better straight out of the fridge cold.

I don't know what I did the first time I made these, but it was not good.. I had cakey (yuck!) brownies that were not sweet enough... i think i may have added too much flax, because i was not careful with measuring... anyway, i made them again tonight, taking care to add only 1TBSP, and i also added in a bunch of chocolate chips.  they are so gooey, yet crispy flakey on the outside as others have mentioned.  PERFECT!

I just made these and I had the thick batter issue too.  I had to add a little extra water and bake them an extra 10 mins (my oven sucks).  However, the brownies are super wonderful.  :)>>>
Next time I make them I'll blend the sugar with the water and oil until the sugar's dissolved.  I think that would make the batter easier to work with.
I think this is going to be my regular brownie recipe.  ;)b I love how it's so simple.  I added chocolate chips this time...next time I'll try it with nuts.

I've got it! I think I know why a couple people have had too thick/dry batter! It calls for flax seed but no water to mix it with. Basically, all you need to do...is add one egg replacer for one batch. So, that's 1 tbs flax+ 3 tbs water or 1.5 tsp Ener-G egg + 2 tbs water. I'm going to post a picture of my batter..just for reference.

I was excited by the previous reviews, so I decided to make these brownies, thinking that I would get results different than I had experienced with vegan brownies before. I followed the recipe exactly, but the dough came out so thick that I almost had to continue mixing with my hands! Of course, looking at the amount of liquid compared to the amount of solids in the recipe should have tipped me off. I put these in the oven but they came out just as my mother's "veganized" brownie recipe did. Way too chewy and fudgy, but not in a good way, in an uncooked way, yet I know I baked it long enough as the edges would go on burnt if I put it in for any more. These were still good to eat, of course, because it's chocolate, but I think I will continue my quest for a good brownie recipe. Thanks for giving me a good excuse to try my hand at vegan brownies again, though.

hmm so i started these and things were going fine, but when i finished i had a batter with a cookie dough consistancy. I added some water, then a couple teaspoons of applesauce for a lumpy but still thick consistancy. what is it supposed to be like? they are baking right now, so i guess will see if more liquid did the trick.....

I think the batter is a bit thick...but I dunno about cookie dough consistency. I've never had to add anything, and they are perfect. I think the batter is just a bit thicker than cake batter.....pourable, but thicker. If you followed the recipe, I think they would have been fine. Either way, I hope they're perfect!

i tried the cold and they are the BEST EVER! i have never in my years of veganism and sweet connoisseur-ing had a brownie this good. the only things that were ok were just my fly-by-the-top of my hat brownies that sometimes ended up being good, but i never had a recipe for them!

this. is. it!

oh, i added a touch of vanilla.
