Attribution: The Joy of Vegan Baking by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau - Chocolate Brownies


1 1/2 cups raw sugar
3/4 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons ground flax seed
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup unbleached all purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (vegan)
1 cup chopped pecans


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spray an 8 by 8 inch square baking pan with baking spray (or line with parchment paper).

Whisk together raw sugar, applesauce, and 2 tablespoons of water in a mixing bowl.

In a small bowl, use a fork to combine ground flaxseed and 1/2 cup water.

Add flaxseed mixture to the wet ingredients, along with vanilla extract and mix.

In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.

Add the chocolate chips and pecans to the dry ingredients, and then mix in the wet ingredients.

Pour the vegan brownie batter into the baking dish and bake for 40 minutes. You may not be able to insert a toothpick and pull it out clean because of the fudge-y nature of this brownie.

Indulge and enjoy.
