Vegan brownies

    30 min

    These are very gooey, which is a good thing in my book. However, if you want your brownies a little more solid you'll need to cook them longer than the recommended time. Great for people with egg or dairy allergies. Feel free to add your own additions like hazelnuts, walnuts or sunflower seeds.

    Made it healthier. Vegan food always seems to have a high oil content which isn't necessary. I halved the amount and used some apple sauce and a pot of soya dark chocolate pudding....I also added some choc chips...the result was great and more vegan friend raved about it!  -  17 Sep 2010


    I just tried this recipe, but it was way too oily, I should have gone by what the other ladies had said and cut down on the oil, but it is a great recipe any way  -  05 Jan 2012


    Yum! These were really good. My partner still had no idea these were vegan either They took longer to cook than recipe says - so I finished them off in the microwave so the outside didn't crisp up too much. Next time I might reduce the oil a little - they are delicious as they are but I think I could get away with using less oil.  -  12 Feb 2012
