What you need: 

1/4 cup canola oil

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!!!

:D this is by far the best brownie recipe from this site i used even without vanilla extract. i used whole wheat flour, applesauce subbing for oil, Stevia for sugar and rice milk for water and also added pecans. i suggest if you make the substitutions i made to add more liquid. but this is not my favorite brownie recipe and will make it more with different substitutions! thanks.


My wife is a vegan. I am not quite there yet. However, I do enjoy vegan cooking. She has shared with me about chocolate and cocoa. The alternative for these would be Carob. You may use either carob powder in place of cocoa powder. Or, use sweetened carob chips in place of chocolate chips.
I made some Vegan Brownies for a church fellowship lunch using the carob powder, then I added 1 cup of sweetened carob chips.
We did not have any to bring home. :'(


I want to now say that these are my favorite vegan brownies! They were perfect when warm...and they are still perfect when totally cool. From my recollection..they taste exactly like my mom's very non-vegan brownies.  :-*


Wow. These are surprisingly really good. I've made quite a few vegan brownie recipes..and these are some of the best. So simple! I used 1 Ener-G egg replacer instead of Flax..whole wheat pastry flour..and didn't measure accurately, but they are chocolaty, gooey, and not all cakey. I added chocolate chips, and nuts would be great! Yum!


Absolutely AMAZING!  I added vegan chocolate chips and they were positively sinful!  I used whole wheat pastry flour and added a little more water, but that was it.  I am making these in the morning for a picnic and am using white.  The batch I made tonight isn't going to make it through the night!  Thanks! >:D
