thank you australia AND NEW ZEALAND!!!!

basic ANZACs are also great with pecans and chocolate chips.

i'm planning on making this as one of many birthday dessert treats for my husband, but i have two questions:

1. would frozen raspberries be ok to use, in your opinion?

2. would 85% chocolate suffice?

hazelnut milk

i started buying hazelnut milk a few months ago, after noticing it at our local supermarket. it has a distinctive nutty flavour and is great on cereal - which is what i exclusively use it for - but not sure how it would go in any kind of baking. it's also pretty heavily sweetened, i think.

trader joe's sells a whole grain (oat, quinoa) milk, too, which isn't bad.

Vegan Brownie Recipes

so i made these and they were great but they seemed a bit too cakey/dry and they didn't really look like the ones in the picture. still, we had no trouble demolishing the entire pan in about 36 hours!

i tried a second batch tonight with some adaptations and they came out just the way i love 'em:
- i halved the ingredients because the first batch came out about 2" tall in the 8 x 8" pan
- i lined the pan with tin foil instead of parchment
- i used 2 oz of chocolate chips instead of 1/2 oz
- i used 4 tbsp of earth balance
- i left out the egg replacer/flax (i actually intended to use it but forgot!)
- i baked them for 30 mins

by far the best brownies i've eaten - and so relieved to find a good vegan recipe that doesn't use applesauce (love applesauce on its own, hate it in cakes).
