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.


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.


  • 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



  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!
