I stopped reading at "margarine." Vegans would be better off with butter. Unless you are talking about Earth Balance, or a similar brand, you are using hydrogenated oil. If you want a true buttery flavor (instead of natural or artificial flavors) use coconut oil. It's actually really good for you.

This truly is amazing! Absolutely delicious... just perfect. Thanks a million for sharing Mattie! You have my eternal gratitude :)

Also, I once tried replacing the margarine with half ghee (not vegan, obviously) and half coconut oil. The result was divine.

Thank you so much, you're the best!! ♥ :)

These came out great texture-wise but I thought the chocolate didnt stand out as much although this might have been due to some substituting:
- used rum instead of vanilla extract
- used 1 C of raw sugar
- used 6 Tb of Olive oil

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).

I make these brownies on a semi-regular basis. They are a lot of work, but I seriously appreciate the science behind it and all the thought that you've put into the recipe. So one night I had some friends over for dinner. A few days before I had made these brownies (and I make a double batch, because I don't have a pan to hold just one). I brought them out to nibble on (mainly to get them out of my apartment before I ate the whole pan) and we all nibbled and drank wine. They remarked that they were good. But!!! The true sign that these truly are the ULTIMATE brownies was that I just had them over again, 3 months later, and as we were talking about the cupcakes I had made that night, they were like "those brownies you made last time were the best brownies I've ever had". Yeah. These friends are not even vegan. Woot!

That's a long winded way of saying Thank You and YOU ARE A GENIUS.

This recipe is awesome! My husband, who is not a vegan OR a big fan of chocolate, almost burned the roof of his mouth eating these out of the pan...

I accidentally added a whole stick of margarine, and they turned out wonderfully. I also omitted the walnuts and pressed pecans into the top of the batter (in half of the pan, for those who enjoy nuts) before baking and they were spectacular.

THANK YOU!

These rock! They turned out so amazing I couldn't help tasting them again and again, though being on a diet *god help me now*. Thank you a LOT. This's the best recipe I've ever tried, beyond all comparison with non-vegan brownies I made once before and whatever else. Everybody thinking of giving them a try, you really have to!

THANKSS! I just made them and they turned out amazing!

I didn't have margarine so I used 6 tbsp butter + 1 tsp of canola oil. My old recipe turned out like chocolate cake not brownies.

I love the crusty top. You can't tell that it's vegan!

I HIGHLY recommend it!! = D

These were delicious, really gooey and chewy the way I like them. I had to add a little extra water as the mixture was too dry but that was only change I made. Any suggestion for preventing the sides from getting to crusty? Do you think baking them covered with tinfoil would help?

Hey Megan,

Glad you liked these! I know, the mixture seems really dry but that's how it's designed for optimum moisture after they're baked. I actually love the crusty sides of brownies- it's pretty hard to bake brownies and not have them.

Baking them covered with tinfoil would definitely hold in moisture and make them more gooey. I'm unsure if it would resolve the side crust issue. I recommend poking some holes in the tin foil if you give this a shot. Let us know how it works out!

Hej,

I haven't try them yet but they look delicious
Can you use no-egg replacer (like no-egg orgran) instead of golden flax meal because i have know idea where i can buy that or if we even sell that in Belgium ?

Thanks

Hi Chana,

It should theoretically be possible to substitute the flax meal with Orgran No Egg. I would recommend substituting the 2 Tablespoons flax with 1 Tablespoon No Egg. Good luck and let me know how it works out!

I found your recipe through Ashley at (never)homemaker. I love it. It is perfect, and I didn't change a thing :-) Okay, I did use tub margarine because in Australia we don't have stick margarine, but it worked out just dandy. I didn't use the bottom rack either because my oven burns everything on the bottom rack. But that just requires knowing your oven! Your recipe, as is, is great! I've always been disappointed with previous vegan brownie attempts, so I am smiling ear to ear.
