Vegan brownies rule

For my contribution to our girl’s night potluck, I decided to test out a new cookbook that Court gave me for Christmas.


I love the name, plus the entire cookbook is desserts! Doesn’t get much better than that.

I chose to start out with something I thought everyone would like…brownies!


I laid out all the ingredients, including some substitutions (like applesauce for oil). I also halved the sugar it called for because I know that is easily something to do that saves calories.


Since I used applesauce and didn’t have brown sugar, the “crumb top” was more of an “icing” but I just went with it.


I thought they turned out great! Everyone remarked that they tasted like fudge and I would have to agree. Nice and chocolatey, not overly sweet, just right.


I love recipe successes! I highly recommend this one, you won’t miss the eggs or dairy, seriously.

What is your favorite cookbook?
