Basically, I was out of soy butter and wanted to make something, so I found this recipe and changed it up to be more of a culinary risk. The risk paid off. Try making this for a party this season, if you're going to one.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (trust me, they won't be spicy, just delicious)
- 3 tablespoons applesauce
(for texture and moisture--more makes them breadier, less makes them gooier. It can be left out.)
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- some chopped walnuts (if you want)
- Preheat your oven to 350.
- Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- Stir in the moist ingredients (and the walnuts if you decided to use them).
- Pour the batter into a baking pan and bake it for about half an hour. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting.
Not to be a dick, but why are brownies ever non-vegan? This is just easier and I think cheaper. Eggs are messy. I am legitimately asking this question, so someone please make these brownies and then tell me why eggs are better to use so that I can experiment and make a vegan alternative.
