Vegan Brownies

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by pollen

My sister used to bake these every day to sell at a cafe at school. I often bring these to vegetarian/vegan potlucks because they are quick and everyone seems to really like them. Please note - these are pretty good, but the other vegan brownie recipe I have posted (Rich, Fudgy Vegan Brownies) is way better!! (I think).

I made these this evening, and they're fantastic!! Gooey, sweet, and so chocolatey! I had all the ingredients at home, and the fact the recipe was egg-free made it all the better! I used only 1/4 cup of oil (no reason, just a genuine error on my part), and the end mixture was reallllly sticky and kinda hard to spread on the pan, but in the end, it turned out great! Thanks pollen!
