My mom had dinner the other day and didn't have dessert for us (what?!). So, as usual, I decided to make something. Of course, the supplies were a bit scarce (e.g. no eggs...which makes baking anything a challenge). So, I came across this recipe for cookies and adapted it a bit on the spot. It was delicious and without the butter and eggs (and if you omit the chips), you can make a case for it to be a healthier dessert choice (or justify adding ice cream and chocolate sauce). You can also make as a mix to give as gifts.
Vegan Chocolate Brownies (or cookies)
3/4 cup veg oil
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup soy milk (or cow milk)
2 cup flour (1/2 wheat, 1/2 white)
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (carob, if you want to keep it completely vegan)
Add nuts, if desired
Combine dry ingredients in large bowl. Add oil, vanilla, and milk. Combine until moist (do not overmix). Fold in chocolate chips. Spread into 9x13 pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 350F for 25-30 mins or until knife comes out clean.
Can also make as cookies. Bake 350F for 8-10 mins (do not overbake).
