Delightful Vegan Brownies

Perfect Vegan Brownies
Brownies are, perhaps, my biggest weakness when it comes to desserts. For years, I've been looking for a Vegan recipe that would really satisfy. I thought I wanted one that tasted exactly like the boxed mix my Mom made when I was a kid. Then, I serendipitously created this one, and discovered that it is WAY better than what I thought I wanted!


These are an easy to make, one bowl sort of brownie, they're fudgy, but still tender and somewhat cakey - but not TOO cakey. They're much lower fat than nearly every brownie out there, and they have no animal products. They're adapted from this one, but they turn out quite differently. They're the PERFECT thing to pair with Ice Cream - whether the Vegan or Dairy variety. 

Perfect Vegan Brownies
Oil a 8 x 8 square pan, and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Stir together in a mixing bowl
1/2 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Applesauce
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 Tablespoons Oil (I use Sunflower)

Then add & Stir
1/3 Cup Cocoa (Sieved to remove any small lumps)
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Stuffedveggies Cookie & Cake Mix (see below if you don't want to click)
1/2 Cup Vegan Chocolate Chips (many national brands are vegan - just check the ingredients)

Pour into prepared pan. Bake 30 Minutes. Cool (at least enough that you don't burn yourself!)
 & enjoy! If you like your brownies with Ice Cream (Vegan or otherwise) this one will work well in that capacity.

Stuffedveggies Cookie & Cake Mix
Shake together in large Canister or Zippered Gallon Bag:
9 Cups All Purpose Flour*
4 Cups Sugar*
2 Tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Salt

This mix also makes:
       Vegan Brownie Snowball Cookies
       Cashew Cardamom Cookies
       Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
       Vegan Gingerbread Crunch Cookies
       The PB&J
       Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies
       Pineapple Upside Down Cake
       Vegan Russian Teacakes ( Vegan Mexican Wedding Cakes )
       Vegan Slice and Bake Sugar Cookies
       Snickerdoodles
       Strawberry Celebration Cupcakes
       Vegan Thumbprint Cookies

Welcome!
Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology.

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
