Bars and brownies Chocolate Eggless

The most amazing vegan brownies

β€œIt’s amazing what you can see when you just sit quietly and look.” ― Jacqueline Kelly.

I know the title of this post holds a tall promise to keep , I am hoping these brownies will  do justice to it. I think so atleast. 

While it’s getting easier to find good vegan recipes , particularly for baking with chocolate , the perfect texture in vegan or egg free brownies alluded me until now. I have managed some excellent truffle brownies and a great cakey one , but a really good chewy-fudgy brownie seemed out of my grasp ! For a brownie connoisseur like me (connoisseur is too fancy, read brownie maniac) , brownie mediocrity is not acceptable. It had to be fudgy , the edges needed to be chewy , it had to be rich , it had to have an ever so crackly top. 

And this one ticks all those boxes ! Big time. And it doesn’t have any vegetables or beans or anything from the fresh produce section in it ! Its just regular ingredients . Be sure to use vegan friendly flour and sugar according to the diet you follow. There is a tad bit of baking powder in there , which you can skip but it does its job well here. 

And what’s better , these will probably be the easiest brownies you make too . How about that ! And i made a simple step by step video – do check it out below!

Although I loved these vegan brownies , two reasons I almost didn’t post them. One is because I couldn’t click pictures that shared just how good they looked ! And the more important one  – I had taken a snapshot of this recipe (I have altered it a bit ) from some site a long time back and now just cannot seem to find the website . So I won’t be able to give credit to the original maker ( which is a big NO in my book ) , but I am still trying to track the site down.

But I just had to share them with you- because I just had to.

Write a review
  1. 190 grams or 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  2. 250 grams or 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar or organic sugar
  3. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  4. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  5. 45 grams or 1/2 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened or dutch processed)
  6. 180 ml or 3/4 cup oil
  7. 180 ml or 3/4 cup water , at room temperature
  8. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  9. 1/2 cup chocolate chips or toasted nuts (optional)
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C or 350 F.
  2. Like a 8 inch pan with parchment paper or butter and grease well.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt , sugar ,baking powder and cocoa.
  4. Add the oil, water and vanilla,and stir until smooth .
  5. Stir in the chips or nuts if using.
  6. Pour batter into the prepared pan . It will be thick. Smooth the top.
  7. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in centre comes out with few moist crumbs .
  8. Cool completely in pan.
  1. These brownies will last for 4 to 5 days at room temperature.
  2. Make sure you slice when they are cool or even chill for half an hour or so before slicing.
  3. You can also bake in a 9 inch square pan for 28 to 32 minutes for thinner brownies.
  4. Use vegan flour and sugar if you prefer.
  5. I used chocolate chips and the brownies were just sweet enough. You can reduce the sugar but be careful because that will change the texture of the brownies to more cakey-fudgey.

There is no way that anyone who has these brownies will guess these are vegan. I am sure the butter and eggs in my fridge have some serious self esteem issues when they shared space with a pan of these !

Happy baking !

  1. Hi, tried your recipe of brownie,mine was little dry I meant to say the batter could not combine while cutting it it fell apart,where did I go wrong plz tell me

    1. Hi Aarti… Did you follow the recipe with all the ingredients and amounts? If yes, then it sounds like it could have been over baked . Maybe your oven runs hotter ? Sorry you didn’t have much luck with it this time… Try baking at 160 C and start checking at 25 mins itself…

  2. hie akshata….these are really amazing brownies …i used butter instead oil and used cooking choclate nd walnuts both..this was amazingly suberb….i m a big fan of all your recipes..thankyou so much…no need to go anywhere else just come to ur blog and one will get thousands of options for her dessert…u r a saviour…was awsm with vanilla

  3. Hi, the recipe does not call for baking soda. So is it OK to use regular cocoa powder without adding baking soda? I have never been able to lay my hands on Dutch-processed cocoa here.

    1. Hi Anjali…yes, go ahead and use regular cocoa. Brownies don’t need much leavening so the baking soda is not needed.

      1. I made these last night. Amazing is the right word. And can you believe I made brownies for the first time! A good start, I must say. I added a handful of walnuts in the batter and on the top too.
        But even a 9 inch pan doesn’t give thin brownies. They rise pretty well. So I got quite a good size of brownies.

        1. Thats great to know Anjali !!! thank you so much.. and I am glad you tried brownies- one of my favourite things to bake!

    1. Hi Komal…. yes, you can . But the brownies will be extremely thick . They will need a longer time to bake. If you are baking for fewer people , you can half a regular brownie recipe and bake in a 7 x 5 inch pan..

  4. Hi Akshatha, m here again.. aftr the chocolate cupcakes… yet again, one more successful recipe from your blog.. got inspired to compliment you again, with ur instant responses… thanks a lot.. your white chocolate blondies r in my checklist almost since 9 months.. wil try to make it sometime soon..

  5. hiii!it looks yummilicious…can’t wait to try your recipe….btw can I make these brownies in cooker?? as I don’t have oven at home..

  6. Hi Akashtha,

    This was my first time trying to make an eggless brownies and your recipe did wonders. It was a gift for my mother-in-law and she totally loved it. Thank you for sharing this tasteful recipe. Only one query- can I add chopped walnuts instead of choco chips?
