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!

I was worried about how these brownies were going to come out because the dough was SO thick, but oh my was I wrong. I've been vegan for over two years and have tried various brownie recipes and none have matched up to that brownie texture and taste I have desired. I just made these with my boyfriend and... oh man.. I can't get over how amazing these are. These are like how I remember brownies being. They are nice and thick and fudgy. Delicious. Thank you again for this recipe :]! I will never use another!

These are very dark chocolate, chewy, dense brownies. I could not find espresso powder, so I made espresso and replaced the 1/4 cup of water with it. Also, I used canola oil instead of vegan butter, and added chocolate chips instead of walnuts, which did not make the brownies fall apart as one reviewer suggested. I had a 9x9 in pan and baked them for 22 mins. I cut them into bite size pieces for a party and they are amazing! I do think it is important to use a good quality chocolate for this recipe as it is an integral part of the flavor.

Left out the espresso and added chocolate chips and a little more water. One reviewer mentioned that they lacked something in taste. The brownies weren't too sweet when I first took them out of the oven, but, after sitting overnight, they were perfect-- best brownies I've made, vegan or not.

just made these but only had whole wheat flower. Not excellent but still better than most commercial mixes. They must be awesome with regular white flower. Can't wait to try it.

Did came out awesomly fudgy, but it somehow lacked something in taste, don't have the skill to know what. Not sweetness or chocolateness, maybe I should add some more salt or coffee. I did add a little bit more water, and use canola oil instead of margarine.

One thing though, I only had flax seeds and I couldn't grind them, so I left them overnight, which is said to have the same effect, and it seemed so, to a certain degree.

Owner's reply

Hi george, the margarine is definitely an important part of this recipe so that's probably why they seemed lacking in flavor. Margarine is an important flavor enhancer and adds richness and creaminess to desserts. I try not to use it unless absolutely necessary but in this case it's needed.

Regarding the flax seeds, they have a hard shell that must be ground away to expose the 'goopifying' compounds inside. I recommend tracking down some pre-ground golden flax seeds and storing them in your freezer for future use if you bake vegan stuff every once in awhile. Thanks for your input!

Well I really only made these because I wanted to make Mattie's double chocolate brownie chunk ice cream! ha ha ha I removed a couple of brownies at the beginning and diced them and put them in the freezer to remove all temptation of finishing the tray! These are gorgeous! I've made brownies before with fax seed for chew and they were good but not as good as these. After I'd made the mix without walnuts, I studded one half of the tray with walnuts (for myself) and left the other half plain (for my husband) so Jack Sprat and his wife lived happily ever after (if somewhat wider around the girth.) American husband said these were what proper brownies should taste like, so British wife was justly proud!
