I am not vegan, and these are the best brownies i've ever tasted (from a chocoholic)! Replacements I made b/c of lack of ingredients:
-can't use margerine/ replacements due to allergies, used coconut oil instead... AMAZING difference (coconut oil is like vegetable shortening at room temp)
-no vegan chocolate so used couple tablespoons dark chocolate instead
- no all purpose flour, used whole wheat flour (much more flavor)
-also doubled recipe
Thanks for the work! We all enjoyed the benefits :-)

These went over well with the dinner crowd, but I still feel like I haven't found the perfect vegan brownie recipe. These came close, but didn't quite make it. I followed the recipe exactly and used Earth Balance sticks rather than the Regular Vegan Butter. I am planning to try these out again with the Regular Vegan Butter.

I made these for vegan colleagues, and they were a hit with both vegans and non-vegans. For gluten-allergy friends, I used soy flour instead of regular. I also added bittersweet chips. Other than that, I followed the recipe exact. Brownies came out wonderfully, great texture and taste.

I have been wanting to make these brownies for a long time, but put it off because I was focusing on healthy desserts. Well, I had a craving and a 1 oz. bar of Valrhona chocolate, so I went for it. As it turns out, I was about 1/3 cup short on sugar, so I substituted some coconut palm sugar. I also used used 3 tablespoons of carob in place of some of the cocoa powder, because I'm not supposed to have much chocolate. Even with these changes, the brownies came out fantastic! I baked them for about 32 minutes and their texture was great, but I think next time I will bake them for 25-30 minutes, so they stay a little moister on hot summer days. Thanks again for posting this recipe. I'm looking forward to making your vegan butter recipe. I just have to get some molds.

Hi - please help. I followed the recipe exactly but used margarine as that's all I had to hand. The brownie tastes awesome but is very gooey and is stuck to the parchment paper. What went wrong?

These are delicious! Finding and successfully baking this recipe makes me so happy, especially since my last attempt at making vegan brownies (using boxed egg replacer) flopped. But these had such great texture , with a roundness to the flavor, and a tempered sweetness. I did not have golden flax meal, but I used flax seeds instead, and grounded them via blender, then adding them to the water. Thank you for the recipe, as well as for the introduction on your thought process.

This is hands down the best vegan brownie recipe out there. An act of genius. I have done a lot of vegan baking over the years and I can tell you there is no better recipe available. I will be using this for years to come. Simply delicious! Thank you!

After failing many, many times at making brownies to a oily mess, this recipe has exceeded all my expectations. This is a REAL vegan/vegetarian brownie, as almost every other recipe has not lived up to the dense chewiness and UNCAKELIKE nature of this one. Thank you so much!!! I recommend this one to everyone!

I made these brownies over the weekend and they were incredible! I made my own Vegan Butter using the cocoa butter vegan butter recipe and the flavor was rich and chocolaty. I added some toasted walnuts and some bittersweet chocolate chips and they were heaven on Earth! Next time I will underbake them a little so that they are bit more fudgy. I also may up the amount of expresso powder for a bit more kick but they were excellent and just what I have been looking for. Thank you Mattie!

Thank you thank you thank you! I am a total brownie snob and have been at a loss for a quality brownie recipe since going vegan. Until now! Like Bec, I used gluten free flour with amazing results. Additionally, my smaller pans were in use, so I used a 9x13 and baked for about 35 minutes with great results. Chewy with just the right amount of crust that every good brownie requires! Your hard work in developing this recipe is so appreciated!

Hi Zsofi! So glad you liked these enough to blog about them! Thanks so much! The nutritional info is interesting. I was a little afraid to see how they measured up (as is often the case in baked items) but it's good to know they're not that bad!

Can we use Cashews/Almonds in place of walnuts? Is there any other preference other than Choc chips, because I dont wanna use to much of chocs.

Thanks Much,

Owner's reply

Hi Vidya! Feel free to use any type of nuts you'd prefer. I find that walnuts pair really well with brownies. I recommend using the semi-sweet chocolate in order to have proper chocolate flavors come through. Also, if you omit the semi-sweet chocolate the brownies won't have enough fat which will negatively affect flavor and texture.

This is the only brownie recipe I make. They are always absolutely amazing! You have made PMSing for vegan girl not as bad as it has to be. Also, my boyfriend says they taste like hash brownies. And hey, if it tastes illegal (at least in Texas), then it has to be good! Thanks!

I have tried many different vegan brownie recipes and well, they mostly sucked. This recipe makes me wonder how they all got it so wrong. I've made this recipe now at least 10 times and it is incredible every time! I use 5 tablespoons of nuttelex (Australian vegan tub margarine) and 2 tablespoons of tofutti but I'm sure 7 T of nuttelex would be fine. I also use more chocolate (2 short rows of a block for Australians that don't feel like getting out the scales)

I have made these with regular flour and a few times with gluten free flour and I have to say, they may even be better gluten free?! At least just as good.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful recipe!

Wow Bec, I'm so glad you've had such great results with these brownies! I haven't tested them with gluten-free flour yet so it's nice to know you had good results there too!
