I have made these brownies 3 different times now and they are absolutely the best brownies I have ever had....even better than the non vegan versions I have tried!

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.

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!

So I used your chocolate mixture plus the flax mixture and baking soda, in the exact same way you used it in your recipe, however, I doubled it, and added it to a Namaste brownie mix I had laying around I got for super cheap. The flour used in it is gluten free fava bean, rice, and arrow root. Of course it has the sugar and cocoa already. But boy does that flour mixture make super fudgy dense brownies with a tiny bit of chew to them! Perfect! I had to share.

Just made these YUMMY brownies. I used half coffee and half water to replace the instant espresso. I also added a half tsp. of baking powder for a little rise. I used canola oil, 6 TBSP. Baked in 30 mins, Puuurrrfectly. Thanks for sharing.

These brownies came out wonderful. I didn't have instant espresso, so I substituted 1/4 t. almond extract. I checked them after 25 min and the middle still seemed soft, but I took them out anyway because of other posters' comments. I'm glad I took them out early because they cooled off to a perfect chewy texture. Sooooo yummy!

WOW, oh wow. I used an entire stick of Earth Balance and used half a bag of vegan chocolate chips, no coffee. I added 1/2 tsp of baking powder because I only have a 9x13 pan, and wanted some rise. I also used 2 tsp of vanilla instead of 1.5.The dough was stiff and I absolutely had to press the dough into the pan. I thought I made a huge mistake, baked it for 20 min., and my goodness, they came out PERFECT. Crusty on top, soft cake with enough "fudgy-ness" to them. I will never use another recipe again! Thank you so much for this!

So I followed the recipe exact with two exceptions 1) I don't use hydrogenated fats so I used earth balance instead, 7 tbs instead of 6, I think I'll use 8 next time as they weren't as fudgy/gooey as I like but I fully believe that is because I should have baked them for 25 instead of the 30 only because I don't use margarine and the water in the E.B. baked off too much.2) i used instant coffee, 2 teaspoons, divine! other than that I will play around with this recipe. I love it!

These were great. I made them to bring into work on Vegan Baking Day and they were mistaken for catered brownies. I did bake them for 5 minutes less and substituted kahlua for the espresso powder and water. These are now my go-to brownie recipe.

wow - these are the best brownies i've ever made.
fantastic.
i didn't have any parchment paper - so i just greased my brownie pan. i would also recommend a little less baking time - if you like a gooey-er brownie.
i topped mine with chocolate chips before baking too.

also - i didn't have espresso powder - so i just used strong coffee in place of the hot water. worked fine.

Best brownies I've ever had. I'm a vegetarian, not vegan but I just love vegan desserts. I made them with coconut oil instead of margarine, added more cocoa and 50/50 raw sugar and agave syrup. I also made a double batch as I just knew I will like them a lot. Mine dont have that delicious looking crust on top and I think I baked them for too long thinking that the brownies will get the crust eventually. Next time I will bake them shorter and will definitely play around with this decadent recipe! Thank you!
