"This is a great recipe for people who are vegan or just looking for a desert that tastes good. You can replace the sugar entirely by doubling the amount of stevia powder. You can also replace half of the all-purpose flour with whole grain flour." — Cookie Starts With C

These are delicious! They are moist and have an intense chocolate taste. I omitted the stevia and they were sweet enough. There wasn't enough batter to pour in a 9x13" pan though, so I just used a 8x8" pan. I cooked only 20 min, since by then, the batter was pulling away from the pan and a toothpick inserted in the center came out clean.
I'm sorry to say, but your recipe was VERY misleading. I did what you suggested, omitted the sugar and doubled the stevia. It was WAAAAAYY to sweet! different stevias are different concentrates. It probably would've been good if I used half the (concentrate) stevia, no sugar, and about 1/2 C. honey, then maybe sprinkle the top with powdered sugar. I hope this helps. (please do not double the stevia - BAD IDEA)
This brownie recipe still turned out great despite my attempt to make it healthier. I substituted 1:1 the vegetable oil for no-sugar added apple sauce and only put in 1/2 cup of sugar. Also sprinkled some almond slivers on top and used extra dark Hershey's cocoa powder. My best sort-of-healthy chocolate desert!
Best vegan brownies I've tried. I used 1/3 cup oil and 1/3 cup of apple sauce as suggested by other reviewers. I added almond and peanuts since I really love chocolate with nuts. It turned very good. Would definitely make it again.
OMG...Better, no, no, no Best Brownies. I almost chomped my fingers off when I finished mixing the batter, lol. I did not have stevia so I just completely skipped it, & as someone mentioned, it was perfectly sweet. I also used only 1/3 cup veg oil and used unsweetened apple sauce for the other 1/3 cup. I used 1/2 cup Vanilla soy milk and 1/3 soy creamer (ran out of soy milk) and out of habit I threw in 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp instant coffee. My entire fam LOVED it. By far, the best brownies, we have made! Thanks for sharing.
Wonderful emergency brownie recipe.... few ingredients that are always in the pantry! Thank you :-) [omitted the stevia and they were sweet enough]
What type of stevia powder do you use? It must be 90% fillers. With Trader Joe's stevia powder, 1/8 teaspoon sweetens a gallon of sun tea and I've never used more than 1/4 teaspoon in any baked item I've made.
Pretty good! I altered the recipe just slightly to my tastes, but this came out pretty yum for sure! Great basic recipe with a lot of potential for tweaking! =)
