Vegan brownies to satisfy sweet tooth

Campus dessert options for vegans have a stigma of tasting terrible. Just look at Dash at the Commons’ “Badass Power Cookie” fiasco, where even the temptation of a free Coke with the purchase of one wasn’t enough to get people over their terrible taste. Thankfully, not all vegan desserts are bad—including these vegan brownies. Vegan Brownies

Ingredients: 

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

2 cups vegan sugar (any bag of sugar that says “Beet,” “Unrefined,” “USDA Organic” or “Raw” is vegan)

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (unsweetened hot chocolate mix can be substituted, but the chocolate taste

won’t be as strong)

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup water

1 cup vegetable oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Stir flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in large bowl.

3. Pour in the water, vegetable oil and vanilla; mix until well blended.

4. Spread evenly in a 9x13 inch baking pan.

5. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the top is no longer shiny.

6. Let sit for 10 minutes.

Enjoy!
