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!!!

This recipe is wonderful!  I added 3/4 cup chocolate chips, which made it fantastic!  Other than that, I followed it exactly.  At first I was worried because the batter was thick and clumpy, but it turned out normal. My carnivorous fiance LOVED them too!   :)


I'm a fan of brownie edges and caffeine, so I baked them for 5 extra minutes after cutting them and substituted drip coffee for all the water, plus added 1TB instant coffee, for kicks.

Didn't have any cocoa powder, so I used 1/3 cup of melted unsweetened baking chocolate instead.

Used Ener-G instead of flaxseeds, but next time I'll stick to the flax because if memory serves right, it gives a nice texture.

Added 1/3 cup of shredded unsweetened coconuts (great idea, chocolatelovr!), resulting in a very rich, decadent, caffeinated brownie.  :D

Caffeinated and drunk off of chocolate, Woo!!--I'm ready to take on the world!


Awesome.  I used chocolate almond milk instead of water, 50/50 applesauce and oil, 50/50 WW pastry flour and unbleached, added a handful each chocolate chips and walnuts, and reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup. Turned out great cooking for 25min.


King Arthur flour is fine. (organic is not necessary for it to be vegan, some people just prefer it) I usually spray my pan with a fine mist of oil from a mr misty but  I believe the commercial cooking sprays like pam are vegan. 


Hi, I have an ingredient question.  I would like to make these brownies for a guest who is vegan.  I never claim to be an expert on food allergies or diet preferences so I always check in detail about brands or ingredients before serving food.

what flour can I use?    I've been trying to gleen from various web sites but not successful. I know that there is a pareve sign on products, I know to look for gluten free or peanut free, but how do I know if a product is okay for a vegan diet?  Is King Aurthur okay? Organic?

Also, what can I grease the pan with?  I usually line my pans with foil - do I need to prepare my pan  in any special way?

I'll off to the store to read some labels!  From the reviews this recipe looks like it will please my vegan and non vegan guests!



::)So delicious! I added unsweetened coconut flakes... I tested a little and made some for my roommates and a student group. Hope they like it...


This recipe was awesome. I made them two days in a row because my children ate them all the first day. This will be a regular recipe in our home. I added a handful of pecans to these which made these to die for. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing this recipe!!!! :)>>>


These are SO good!  Mine didn't hold together real well, but they taste so good, it doesn't matter!  I replaced the canola oil with coconut oil and  greased the pan with it as well.  It added some good flavor and they didn't stick to the pan at all.  I will for sure make these again!


I've made these twice now and they came out cakey both times.  Don't get me wrong, they taste good...but it's not my ideal brownie.  I'm still looking for that elusive dense, fudgy texture...


Deeeelish! These are what I think brownies should be. They were thick and fudgey on the inside and crispy and flaky on the outside. I used whole wheat flour and soy milk instead of water. I had to add some extra soy milk because the batter was way too thick, but that could be because of the changes I made. Oh, I ran out of sugar and used half white sugar and half brown sugar. I wanted to make these to take to my rock climbing club tonight, but I should've doubled the recipe because the boyfriend and I ate more than a quarter of the brownies last night! Oops! Yummmmmm.
