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?

Just made these tonight, and they aren't bad. I think they needed a bit more liquid. The only thing I changed was I only had vegetable oil on hand, so I used that instead of the canola oil, and I added in some mini m&ms. I find they have a bit of a powdery aftertaste, so I think next time I will definitely add a bit more water. Oh, and I had to double the recipe in order to fill a 9x9-inch pan. They still taste very good, and they are in fact gooey with a "crusty" top. Will probably make these again :)

I made these and added vegan chocolate chips. They were really good, but I almost went into a diabetic coma afterwards. For some reason every time I make something Chocolaty it turns out too sweet . Guess Ill have to stick to cookies and stuff.

For my first time using this recipe I was very happy with the results. I reviewed the suggestions, and based on them, went with the following modified recipe:

That's a whole new recipe, sask! You should just submit that!

Thank you for that. I didn't think about that. Let me take one more stab at the recipe before I post. I've been studying brownie recipes and techniques, although not as obsessively as chocolate chip cookies, to see if I can get it just right.

This brownie gets high marks for rich flavor, chewy texture and simplicity. The brownies were fudgey little squares, slightly crispy on top, chewy middles, and studded with walnut bits. I did hope for a slightly thicker brownie, although rich chocolate flavor was packed into the thinner squares.

For my first time using this recipe I was very happy with the results. I reviewed the suggestions, and based on them, went with the following modified recipe:

    1 cup sugar
    1/3 cup soy milk
    1 Ener-G egg (1 1/2 teaspoons Ener-G egg replacer powder beat with 2 Tablespoons warm water until frothy)
    3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
    1 Tablespoon applesauce
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1 cup unbleached flour
    1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup chocolate chips
    1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Oil an 8"x8" baking pan and sprinkle bottom with a little cocoa powder.

In large bowl, whisk together sugar and soy milk. Mix in Ener-G egg, oil and apple sauce.

In smaller bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to dry ingredients. Whisk until ingredients are just incorporated. Don't overmix. Fold in chocolate chips.

Using a rubber spatula, evenly distribute brownie batter into oiled pan. Sprinkle top with walnut bits.

Bake for about 25 minutes. Let cool and cut into squares.

Makes 16 squares.

Hey, I just tried these brownies and they are very good!!! This is first time I am making brownies! I followed the recipe: added baking powder and all other ingredients. I also added some walnuts. I only added sugar to water and oil and let it melt before mixing with dry ingredients :-)

These are absolutely AMAZING - and so easy to make. All my friends loved them! My omni brother who shuns vegan food on principle was begging for me to make these again. Weirdly, I also forgot the baking powder the first time I made these, but even then they were good. I used one egg's worth of egg replacer because I didn't have any flax seed, and that worked out perfectly.

So much win!

I LOVE these brownies.  I didn't have flax so I used Ener-G, but otherwise followed the recipie.  I have to say that I've always liked brownies best right out of the oven, but these brownies are even better after they've sat and cooled awhile.  Thanks for the yummy recipe!

I don't understand why this recipe won't work for me.  I have made it three times, and every time, I end up with a brownie that's more like a dense cake.  It's not fudgy and it doesn't have the crispy top like others have mentioned.  I've tried it with baking powder and without.  It has a watery taste rather than chocolatey.  Maybe it's the pan I'm using?  Each time, I've doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9x13 light colored, professional aluminum pan.  I don't know if everyone else is using a glass pan and that's why they're getting a better result?  Help!  I want to experience awesome brownieness too! :'(

Try it without doubling it. I usually use an 11x7 or 8x8 square metal pan that's greased really well. Are you making the flax egg? Whisk the flax with 3 tbs water. Add chocolate chips!
