Vegan Brownies – 3 WW pts each

I have been craving a big fat brownie for a couple days now. Unfortunately, I got a sinus infection and couldn’t do much, but once I started feeling better, I knew what I wanted to do. I found a Vegan brownie recipe and it turned out pretty darn good. It definitely satisfied my craving! I made a few modifications to the recipe and they still turned out great.

Vegan Brownie (from Allrecipes.com) – makes 242 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup water - I used 1 1/2 cups of soy milk1 cup vegetable oil - I used 1/2 cup1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Pour in water, vegetable oil and vanilla; mix until well blended. Spread evenly in a 9×13 inch baking pan.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top is no longer shiny. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting into squares.

I wanted to add some nuts to some of the brownies, so I decided to add nuts to 1/3, swirled chocolate/PB chocolate chips to 1/3 and left 1/3 plain. Hubby liked the ones with the PB/choco-chips best. I liked the plain ones best.

Ahh… this is the best way to enjoy a brownie – warm with vanilla ice cream (Tofutti for me) over the top. MMmmmm!!

    Ack, your blog is making me gain weight! I’m vegan so I’ll be trying these… I think I’ll use almond milk in place of the soy milk however. I like the flavor of almonds with chocolate.
