Chocolate Brownies (shhh... they're vegan!)

I am 3 days into the 21 Day Vegan Kickstart! I am not going to lie, it has not been easy. I have done without meat for quite a while now, but this is a whole new ball game. It is just a different frame of mind in regards to food and I am slowly getting there! I feel great though! I can really tell a difference. I was searching for some vegan desserts online and I found a yummy recipe for brownies. I changed it a little and used applesauce instead of oil. I am eating them right now with a cold glass of almond milk. Who says vegans can't eat anything?! Here is what you will need:

*Preheat oven to 350

*In a small bowl combine 1c flour, 1c sugar, 1/4c plus 2tbsp cocoa, 1/2 tsp baking powder, and 1/2 tsp salt

*In a large bowl combine 1/2c water, 1/2c applesauce, and 1/2tsp vanilla

*Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well

*Pour into a greased pan (all I had clean was my silicone stuff...oh, well)

*Bake for 15-20min

*Let cool and enjoy!


  1. awesome! slightly lower cal than the usual too it looks like?

  2. Those do look really good...and healthier than regular brownies (especially my hubby's favorite recipe!).
