Vegan Brownies

Another quickish post today, this time vegan brownies. I’ve seen a ton of recipes that apparently think because they’re vegan, they must have tofu or avocado or at the very least egg replacers, but it’s just not necessary, at least not for brownies!

(Oh and if you’re not vegan, these work juuuust fine in chocolate mousse ice cream!)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9X13″ pan.

Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.

IMG_3904Stir in the water, oil, and vanilla.

IMG_3905Transfer to the greased pan, then sprinkle with the chocolate chips.

IMG_3906Bake 25-3o minutes, until no longer shiny. Let cool at least 1o minutes before cutting. Cool completely to minimize crumbling when you cut out pieces.

IMG_3907And you’re done! Unless, of course, you want to go on and put them in some ice cream. But really…vegan things just don’t have to be super complex, despite what the internet may sometimes tell you!

And now, I should get back in the kitchen!

    I like this post and the fact that you tell vegans what’s up. One criticism: more chocolate chips. 🙂

    Who measures chocolate chips? I mean, I just add “enough,” which means, a lot.

    Also, ice cream ON the brownies works, too, and is easier than making your own ice cream to put the brownies in. Not that homemade ice cream’s a bad idea, I just want to speak for the lazy among us.

    Your brownies are very very pretty.

    I’ve been on the search for a eggless brownie recipe (that is why I like to look up vegan stuff). I will be trying this very soon!

      This one’s real simple, but I’ve always liked it! Hope you do too!

        Hey! I tried your recipe (with a few modifications to make it healthier) and posted pictures and the recipe giving credit to you and a link to your blog on my blog. Check it out if you would like:) It came out delicious by the way! Love the consistency.
