The BEST vegan brownies

Brownies are probably one of my favorite desserts…actually they tie with chocolate chip cookies for me. I mean they are chocolatey, warm, gooey and crispy all at the same time. However, for some reason I was always so intimidated to make them from scratch. I would always just buy a box mix and veganize it. Now, don’t get me wrong, boxed brownies are still amazing, but I quickly realized that the ingredients in them were typically what I always had on hand, with the exception of cocoa powder. So I finally decided to do it, and let me tell you, THEY ARE SO EASY AND SO INCREDIBLE. I’m honestly mad I waited so long.

This recipe is seriously so easy (10 min prep) and is made with a FLAX EGG. I was beyond impressed with the texture and chewiness these brownies yielded with the use of a flax egg! Sometimes using a flax egg in recipes is hit or miss for me so I was a little hesitant but after the first bite I was shocked. AND the tops and edges were SO crispy ( literally the prefect brownie.)

There really isn’t much more I can say other than DO NOT sleep on making these.
