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.

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. Read More

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) Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
