From _The Vegetarian No-Cholesterol Family-Style Cookbook_
by Kate Schumann and Virginia Messina, M.P.H., R.D.:

(Note: These are very gooey, which is a good thing in my book.
However, if you want your brownies a little more solid you'll need to cook them longer than the recommended time.)

  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
Mix together the remaining ingredients and add them to the flour mixture.
Stir until well blended.
Pour into a 9 x 13-inch pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
