Fudgy Vegan Brownies

Sending

  • Ready In:
  • Makes 12 brownies

Moist, rich, and seriously fudgy, this no-fuss recipe for vegan brownies delivers big chocolate flavor. Unsweetened applesauce, almond butter, and ground flaxseed add chewy tenderness.

Editor’s note: When first published, this brownie recipe didn’t make enough batter. All ingredient measurements have been doubled to correct the issue. We want to thank all commenters who brought it to our attention.
