Wonderful Vegan Brownies

"After tasting these at a small get together that was hosted by a vegan, I was delighted to receive the recipe to try for myself and then had to post it here, these are one of the best vegan brownies! water may be substituted for the soy milk if desired."

  1. I'm sorry. I really wanted to like these, but they were inedible. I was looking for an egg-free recipe because I didn't have any in the house. I followed the recipe to a T except I used chocolate soymilk instead of regular. I don't think that would have changed it too much. They were too dense and dry; I even undercooked them. I couldn't even eat one, and my polite guests choked down one. Thanks for the idea, though.
  2. I followed the recipe using metric and it was a complete disaster. It was a literal dough, it was so so dry i couldn't mix it at all and I had to add a whole extra cup of milk and oil to make it slightly more manageable and it obviously turned out horrible. I dont understand how this is even a recipe? The conversion from us to metric HAS to be wrong because i followed it exactly and it turned out like that.
  3. Absolutely wonderful! Have been baking these in my cafe for more than a year now. I’ve tweaked it a bit, no baking powder, a bit of dark chocolate chopped into little pieces and it’s “the best brownies ever” according to our customers!

  4. Made these for my Vegan Granddaughter. So when I asked her mother if she liked them, I was told everyone else loved them just as much as non vegan brownies. Glad I saved a few for grams and myself. They were right, they are delicious. I'm not the biggest cinnamon fan so I will cut it in half next batch. Next batch is coming up in about an hour. The only soy milk we had was " Very Vanilla " and I worried it might overpower the taste. No problamo at all. Keep these vegan recipies coming so I can make her other items. Thanks
  5. LOVE!!! Not sure if last review went through but can't stop licking the bowl.


  1. This recipe is great! I have made planty of brownies from different recipes and I will stay for sure with this one. I just made a couple of changes: put 2 teaspons of baking powder instead of 1, and my douth was really heavy (I don't know why), so I added some more soya milk. Thank you for the recipe :) I recommend it!
  2. This is a solid four star recipe. Because I used vanilla soy milk, I added a little less sugar. I also added 1Tblsp of flax mixed with 3 Tblsp of water that had been simmered for a few minutes. We enjoyed these more once they had the chance to cool down. They are nice and moist and mine did not fall apart at all. I also subbed applesauce for the oil. Thanks for the recipe.
  3. These were great! This is the first brownie recipe I've made since going vegan that has actually worked! I put in 1/4 c of pecans instead of walnuts. They were absolutely delicious! Very nice and fudgy!
