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?

These were pretty good, slightly cake-y...but then when I had one the next day...MmMmMm!!!
To me, these were way better cold, they had more goooness  :)>>>
I used coconut oil instead of canola, used a little extra cocoa powder plus some carob, cut the sugar down to 1/2 C, and added about 1/3 C of chocolate chips (that's all I had). My partner loved them. I really enjoyed them, but I think I will add more chips and liquid next time, then bake them for 20 mins or less.

These were really amazing!!!

I agree with previous statements about adding a bit more water because it's a little difficult to mix up, but besides that SO AWESOME AS A CHOCOLATE TREAT! I was craving some chocolate and since most chocolate bars have milk ingredients I was finding that quite discouraging, but now that I've got my cocoa powder I'll be fine ;)

My friends loved these and they aren't even Vegan/Vegetarian! So if they can handle it anyone can ;)

THANKS,

This is my favorite brownie recipe!! I've seriously tried so many different ones and hated them and they never tasted like I thought brownies would taste. I subbed apple sauce for the oil and added vanilla and used soy milk instead of water. Then I ate them all really fast and needed more, so I skipped the vanilla and used orange juice instead of the water - like a chocolate orange!! They turned out so good so if you remember eating chocolate oranges this is a good way to replicate the taste!

Hmmm.. I don't know what I did wrong :( I followed the recipe exactly, but once I got the liquid and dry ingredients together, I was left with a dry, cookie-dough-like hunk of brownie that wouldn't spread out in the pan.  So I put it back in the bowl and added some soymilk and some chocolate syrup, which made it more brownie-batter-like, but I am very disappointed by how they turned out--more like dense cake tasting nothing like brownies.  They smelled delicious while baking though :) so maybe I just did something wrong with the original recipe?  :-\

:)>>> This is quite possibly the best and EASIEST brownie mix eVar!

I wasn't planning on making brownies, but when I saw your comment on the Vegweb front page I decided to check it out, and I'm so glad I did!

I used 2 T. water mixed with 2 t. baking powder for my egg replacer, and although my batter was way too thick (perhaps because I over-mixed with an egg-beater), I just added 1/4 cup water and it seemed just right.  I overcooked them a bit, I think, because they were a little tough last night, but today out of the fridge they are amazing.  Mmmm, mmm!

Very easy and very delicious, great recipe... thanks everyone!

I used soy milk instead of water and added a tsp of vanilla extract! I also added the choc chips and some nuts on top. OMG, so gooey and amazing!

The only prob I had was that the brownies stuck to the pan, even though I greased it. Next time I'll have to grease it with some earth balance instead of spray.

Loved it! My non-vegan husband loved it as well! ;)b

I just made these out of boredom and I was surprised by how good they were. I followed the recipe exactly, and the measurements seemed right on. This is my first ever vegan brownie experience, and I loved it. The only thing I'll change next time is use a smaller pan. I used a 8x8 inch pan, and they came out a little too flat. Other than that they were lovely!

These were cakey and delicious.  My modifications were:

whole wheat flour instead of white flour
1 tsp of vanilla extract
I used soy milk instead of water, and added an extra large splash of soymilk to the batter (it felt way too thick with only 1/3 of a cup)
I sprinkled chocolate chips on top.

Yum. :)>>>

I wasn't overly impressed with these.  They tasted kind of low fat and slightly tv-dinnerish. My freinds and roomates however ate them up real quick like so maybe its just me.

I didn't have flax seed so I blended up some silkin tofu with the oil to acount for the egg substitute.

It sounds like the tofu was an issue, because these definitely don't taste low fat! You should try them again with flax and water, or Ener-G.
