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 don't know if I'm just dumb or what, I can't see how I made the same recipe as everyone else. I followed the directions with the exception of using hazelnut milk instead of water. I had to use more than suggested because the dough would not even get entirely wetted. The consistancy is terrible, not brownie like at all... as for the flavor, way too sweet and not chocolatey enough. Pretty much everything about this was wrong, I don't understand why everyone else has had success.

The batter is weird.  It's more of a dough than a batter.  It will work out if you keep working at it.  I add the dry ingredients first.  Then I add the wet ingredients with a teaspoon of vanilla extract.   It seems like it will be too dry, but I keep mixing the dough until it all gets moist, without adding any extra liquid.  Then I spread the thick dough into a Pam-sprayed pan and they turn out great.

Wow! These are absolutely delicious. Made these last night for my family (only been vegan for 2 weeks) and we all loved them, especially our 2 children of 6 and 8.
Only thing I changed was to use brown sugar.

I made these with oat flour, 3/4 cup of sugar, vanilla coconut milk instead of water, and applesauce instead of oil. i also added some ground almonds and chocolate chips. The texture was just a little off from the oat flour, but they taste great. Good recipe!

I apologize because normally I really don't like when people rate recipes they have not even tried yet. "This looks great" with 5 stars is just not helpful, my friends! :)

However, I'm making an exception for this one because the only reason I didn't get to try them is because they dissappeared so quickly. I think that means they were good. =) I was the only true vegan in the room, and I didn't even get a crumb. If they didn't know I made them, they never would have guessed they were vegan.

I also had some sticking issues, but it was not too bad - sprayed a 8x8 pan, but did not flour. Next time I'll flour too. I also put some toasted/chopped pecans on top before baking. I would def recommend doubling this recipe, but still baking them in the 8x8 pan, so they're fatter. I can't wait to make this again, and this time I'll be taking the FIRST one!

These were sooo Yummy! I usually keep something sweet on hand to appease the masses. These were a big hit. I even got thanks for not making vegan "this time" hahah ( the masses in my home are omni)

I'd like to try these, but I'm a bit confused....if I use egg replacer, do I add 3 T. of water and still add the 1/3 c. of water in the instructions? Thanks for any help.

I doubled the recipe to fit a 9x13 in. pan and added a cup of choc. chips and 2 tsp. of vanilla extract.  They were fudgy without a hint of cakiness just like I like 'em.  I can't believe I finally found a vegan brownie that is actually fudgy and not cakey.  I've tried many a vegan cakey brownie trying to pass themselves off as fudgy, but these are the real deal.

Wow.  Really - wow.  The batter was really thick like cookie dough and I was worried :o - but I didn't want to alter the recipe.  I should have made it in a 8 x 8 pan - but grabbed the 1st thing I saw (13 x 9).  This recipe is really forgiving.  The brownies came out excellent.  This is the first time I've made homemade brownies and they were great.  I doubled back and checked out past comments - apparently there needed to be extra water for the ground flax seed.  No matter - excellent, excellent, excellent. :)>>>

O.K.  I'm back.  I've eaten the whole pan of brownies.  Someone save me from myself. :o
