Recipe by  

"This is a wonderful recipe that my vegan step-daughter gave me. So delicious and so healthy. My younger kids loved them! Top with chia seeds, black sesame seeds, or chocolate chips! I add whatever I want to the frosting; you could add peanut butter or peanut butter chips!"

First vegan brownies I've ever made. Super easy and super delicious.

I'm not vegan but this recipe sounded like a cool one to try. I didn't make the icing because I was too lazy and I didn't have powdered sugar but they were good anyways. I didn't have apple cider vinegar so I used red wine and raspberry vinegar. They ended up just fluffy enough and very tasty. Thanks for the recipe!

If I were vegan, or visiting vegan friends, I'd make this again. Overall quite good and very light, but doesn't hold together as well as if an egg were added. Still good enough even without icing!
