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?

I made these for the men my husband my husband works with and they came out really fudge-like instead of brownie-esque.

I followed everything to an exact 'T' except I used "milled flax seed" instead of "ground flax seed". Could that be the reason my brownies didn't come out quite right?

This recipe made me and my family very very happy, and feeling very full of chocolatey goodness - mmmm -thank you  ^-^ five stars from me, and no issues with batter consistancy (I did use egg replacer version though)

I have read the reviews and am very exited about these brownies being chewy! I have them in the oven right now. I followed the recipe except that I  used enerG egg replacer instead of flax. I also dissolved my sugar before adding the rest of the dry ingredients and my batter was perfect. I'm not sure how the final product will be but the batter was good! My daughter and I both loved it.

Schmoopy ~ you can try lightly dusting flour on the pan after you oil it.

When I made these the batter did come out a little thick so I added a splash of chocolate soy milk per one of the previous reviewers suggestions. I also added vegan chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.  They didn't stick to the pan, but they were more cakey than I would have liked.  I think next time I will use all soy milk and no water and bake a little less than the suggested time -- could just be my oven causing the difference.  They did have a crispy top and looked great!

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.
