A friend asked me yesterday for some of my favorite vegan recipes. This brownie one came to mind. I posted this recipe on my previous blog and I thought I would repost it here. It continues to be the best vegan brownie recipe I have found.
2 cups flour
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 c coffee (the liquid, not the grinds- I use our decaf from breakfast)
2 tbsp ground flaxseed (if you have never ground flaxseed, get yourself a coffee grinder for just grounding flaxseed)
3/4 c water
1 cup plus 2 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp vanilla
1/4 dark chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt until combined.
2. Add coffee, ground flaxseed, water, oil, and vanilla, and mix with a spatula unitl mixture is thick and wet.
3. Spread batter into prepared baking dish, and sprinkle with chocolate chips (I used more chocolate chips than suggested). Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Enjoy!
