Servings 9


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup (unbleached, vegan) sugar
  • 6 Tbs cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (canola should work as well)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF and lightly grease a square casserole dish or line with foil.
  • Combine and mix all the wet ingredients in one bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients (except for the chocolate chips) and slowly add them to the wet mixture.
  • If you want chips inside the brownies, add them to the batter. Otherwise, pour the mixture into the pan and sprinkle the chips on top of the batter before baking.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool (at least slightly) before cutting and serving. Top with vegan ice cream, whipped cream or sprinkles for a more festive appearance, or enjoy with a glass of non-dairy milk.
