I used to make a richer brownie, but I haven't made them since I developed these. I like them because they don't try too hard to be healthy, but are not too sickly-rich either. Just right, in fact! Note: Recently, I have been cutting back on the sugar. I am now usually using about 1 2/3 cups. I usually use at least part Sucanat (an unrefined organic sugar) as well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Grease and flour a 9"x13" pan; or, better, line it with parchment paper.
  3. Sift together the flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  4. Whisk together the oil, soy milk, vanilla, egg and brown rice syrup.
  5. Stir into the dry ingredients.
  6. Scrape into the pan.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes.
  8. Cool in the pan, cut into squares, and remove.

these were very good, and we all felt healthy after devouring them. i did have to add 18 minutes to the cooking time as the middle didn't cook as quickly as the outside. this is the kind of brownie i allow my kids to eat for breakfast.

These are easy to make and my hubby loves them. He's on a strict low fat diet but is not willing to give up his sweets. Thanks for the help...I love this site.

I had high hopes for this recipe but was rather disappointed. I had to add 10 minutes to the bake time and they still came out underdone. I would decrease the sugar by a third to half a cup next time, and add another egg or decrease the oil to 1/3 c.
