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

SO HOW'D IT GO?

After reading all the rave reviews on the ppk site and here I decided to make these for Thanksgiving. I subbed espresso for the water and added chocolate chips. They were a hit with others, but I felt like something was missing. Maybe I should have subbed soymilk instead of espresso or added walnuts. Needless to say I attacked them along with everyone else.

Thanks for the recipe!

best recipe on vegweb!!!

i replaced water with soy milk, didn't add the flax seed but did put in walnuts. I also used walnut oil and added a splash of vanilla essence. it turned out perfectly. :)>>>

This was an awesome recipe and really easy. I did have to add more water and I used Hersheys special dark cocoa powder and added chocolate chips, delicious!!!

Since there were so many rave reviews, I know I must have done something wrong!  My brownies came out really dry and crumbly.  We ended up making them into brownie sundaes and of course tasted fine, just a bit crumbly!

These never get old. They tasted incredible the first time, and then when I replaced half the oil with applesauce, and then when I used a bit of peppermint extract. My friends and family loved them as well, and they are horribly picky when it comes to baked goods.

Wow! I made these this evening and i have already polished off more than half the tray by myself! They are sooooooooo good! I used half unbleached white flour, and half whole wheat pastry flour; as well as using half brown sugar and half unrefined white sugar. Other than that i followed the recipe exactly - i was a bit skeptical as the batter was very thick, but they came out perfect! I had to bake them for about 10 mins longer though, and let them cool down a bit to firm up once out the oven...I also added chopped pecans and choc chips to the batter- AMAZING! Ate it with my failed vanilla ice cream...Yum, yum x

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm :)>>> the amazing, warm, chocolatey gooeyness!! i just pulled these out of the oven, and they are FANTASTIC! i couldn't wait long enough for them to cool, so they aren't firm enough yet to hold shape, and im eating them with a spoon, haha! but im totally okay with that. they are really rich, and i already feel sick from eating too many  :P. i used egg replacer instead of the flax seed, and i added about 1/4 cup chocolate chips, just for extra gooeyness. i tried to take a picture, but because they were falling apart, and the lighting in my apartment sucks, i couldn't get a good photo. this recipe is definately a keeper!

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! :>
