I have tried numerous vegan brownie recipes with mixed results.
I was emailed this recipe by a friend and finally tracked it down online. It’s perfect!!
I give all the credit to Sweet Pea Baking Company
Also VegNews magazine was able to publish the recipe and make it available online.
I made a few edits to reduce the sugar and oil from the original recipes posted above. Here’s my version of it:
Makes 24 small brownies or 12 large
2 cups flour (Bob’s Red Mill organic unbleached white flour)
2 cups sugar
1 cup cocoa powder ( I used Dutch process for a dark, rich brownie)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coffee
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal (Bob’s Red Mill, ground flaxseed meal)
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/4 cup chocolate chips *optional
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or line with parchment paper a 9 x 13 baking dish. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt until combined.
2. Add coffee, flaxseed meal, water, oil, and vanilla, and mix with a spatula until mixture is thick and wet.
3. Spread batter into prepared baking dish, and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
