Here's a good recipe for Vegan Brownies - I'm always being asked to
make these again and again...
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup apple sauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 deg F, 175 deg C.
In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking
powder and salt. Pour in water, apple sauce, veg oil and vanilla
extract and mix until well blended. Spread evenly in a 9 x 13 inch
baking pan. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes until the top is no longer
shiny. Leave to cool for 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
I have also varied this recipe by adding almond extract and 3 heaped
dessertspoons of ground almonds, because I like almonds, but that
would add protein ;)
Replacing veg oil with coconut oil adds a nice flavor to brownies:)
