Vegan Brownies from a Box Mix

Nothing better to compliment your Sunday morning coffee than a few spoonfuls of brownie crumbs from Saturday night's dessert!

I'm not good at baking, and that's definitely not something I'll be experimenting with. But seriously, anyone can make brownies from a box mix. And it's really easy to make them vegan, since there's no need for eggs in baking. You don't even need any fancy egg-replacement products, just a little apple sauce.

So maybe they will be a little more crumbly than the egg bound version. But they will still taste delicious, and are great topped with a little ice cream (try vegan Coconut Bliss).

*Update 5/19/12:
Here is the mix I used that did not have dairy products - it's easy to find in grocery stores:
Duncan Hines CHEWY FUDGE BROWNIE mix.  DOUBLE FUDGE and DARK CHOCOLATE should be ok too. Other varieties, such as "milk chocolate" may have dairy products included, so please check the ingredients.

Vegan Brownies from a Box Mix
1 box of brownie mix
1/3 C water
1/3 C oil
1/4 C applesauce
1 T arrowroot powder or cornstarch (optional, to add binding power)

In a large bowl, combine brownie mix contents, water, oil, applesauce and arrowroot. Mix about 50 strokes until well combined. Pour into a pan and follow baking directions on the box for your pan size.

You may need to bake them about 10 minutes longer than the box advises. They're done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
