Meatless Monday: Dessert!

Vegan Brownies! 

Meatless Monday doesn’t have to be about just breakfast lunches and dinners. It’s about snacks and desserts too!

A few weeks ago I had planned on going out shopping, spending Christmas gift cards, and then we got hit with a snow storm.

BOOOOO.

So, change of plans. Instead I decided to cook, and I decided to make Brownies. I figured since my vegan cookies didn’t come out half bad, why not give brownies a shot!

I found this recipe online… I unfortunately forgot where, BUT props to whoever did make this recipe because my brownies came out SO GOOD.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1tsp of vanilla
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ tsp baking powder

Directions

  1. Cook the 1 cup of water and ½ cup of flour over low heat
  2. Stir until it reaches a gluey pasty consistency
  • Take it from me, don’t let the look of this mixture sway you, it’s not pretty but it helps the entire thing come together.

  1. Remove and let it cool COMPLETELY
  2. In a bowl, mix together both sugars, salt, vanilla, cocoa powder and oil
  3. Then add the flour water mixture
  4. Mix well
  5. Add the remaining 1 ½ cup of flour and the ½ tsp of baking powder
  6. Spread it out into a greased pan. The original recipe said to use an 11×7 in pan,

– I used a 10 x16 because I ended up doubling the recipe to make enough for my mom, my sister, my brother. His friend and myself, plus leftovers! Which I’m glad I did because my brother and his friend ate almost the whole thing between them!

  1. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. OR until the middle comes out clean on a knife. I did intervals of 10 minutes only because I was nervous about how it would cook in a bigger pan and because I doubled the recipe!

Like I said I doubled the recipe and it came out delicious but also very sweet! So, next time I’d probably go a little easier with the sugar or cocoa powder, just something to keep I mind if you plan on making this to feed a lot of mouths like I did!

I launched Miss Raee in 2016 purely for a twenty-something girl who is trying to figure it all out, who loves to write and finally decided to share it. I’ve had a hell of a time figuring out what I wanted this blog to be, and I’ve eventually narrowed it down to that I want this blog to be ME, every weird, quirky, loveable aspect of me and even more importantly anyone who also sees themselves as that weird, quirky, loveable person who might love plant-based cooking, multiple fandoms including Star Wars, Supernatural, Greys Anatomy, DC TV, Marvel, The Magicians and SO much more. I found myself being an advocate for mental health, for animals, for the environment, and for equality. I’m a big believer in the vibes you bring, the power of music, and how important the storytelling of books and movies and TV can be. If I’m not on the blog, you can find me sharing selfies and nonsense on Instagram @/amandaraeex3 and live-tweeting and putting in my two cents on twitter at @/amandaraee_x3, so I hope you’ll tag along with me on here and my social media and enjoy all the weird, quirky things we all love.
