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!!!

Not to make this "one of those" reviews, but I made some subs, and this still turned out awesome. I had only 2/3c. of wheat flour, but the need for brownies was dire, and thus I subbed some brown rice flour, potato starch, and oat flour for the remainder. I admit I was worried; the batter did NOT taste very good, but I persisted! In the end, I had fantastic, chocolatey, kinda fudgy, kinda cakey brownies.

These were really, really good, and I think I'll try them with all gluten-free flours next time. Thanks for the great recipe!



mmmm, mmmm, mmmm! FUDGY heaven. i used cold strong coffee for the 1/3 cup of water. i never pass up an opportunity to marry chocolate and coffee together. i also added vegan chocolate chips. very easy and very good!


1 star :( .... I was a bit disappointed of this recipe after all the great reviews.  I followed the recipe almost exactly - only changes were using 1/2 wheat flour (cause I ran out of white) and adding a bit more water/oil (cause the mixture was way too dry - clumpy).  It didn't really spread into an 8x8 pan, but rose a little (maybe 1/2 inch) while cooking in the oven.  The taste is not amazing as the flour/flax flavor shines through more so than any chocolate taste.  I will not make this again and will continue searching for a good vegan brownie recipe.


These are the best vegan brownies I've had. They come out perfect!!! :)>>>


Okay, there is a BIG problem with this dough.... How do you get it into the pan? Because without eggs there is no need to worry about eating it raw and *swoon* omg good... ;)  It's just so hard to not eat it all on the way over to the pan.




I made these last week and took some to a kid's birthday party. I did a few things differently: added chocolate chips, baked them in 2 small (bread?) pans, and used egg replacer instead of flax seed (which was probably why my batter was more moist than everyone elses - it uses 1 tbs egg replacer and 3 tbs water).

I baked them for a couple minutes past 20, let them sit. They were kinda dry and stuck to the pan even though I oiled it well. Next time I'll try the flour thing and maybe cook them less. I want them to be chewy like everyone else's! Regardless, if you heat one up and top it with vanilla soy dream - mmmmmm! :d


I made these yummy brownies last night. They were a big hit. Slightly crisp on the outside and chewy inside.


  Really good, I should try adding chocolate chips next time


these are the first vegan brownies ive made and boy oh boy, i seriously would have eaten the whole pan if i hadn't brought them to a party. thank goodness for that, haha. i added some extra chocolate chips too  ;D my only complaint is that they were a bit crumbly and would hold together. not sure how to fix this..... other than that these are so so good.


these came out very tasty!  they were gooey like you said, but a great quick brownie snack!  I'll have to read around what others did to tweak it to change the texture a little.  BUT thank you for sharing!  :)
