You may or may not be thinking…haven’t you already posted a recipe for vegan brownies? Yes, that is true…but trust me these are even better.
I slightly altered the ingredients and measurements. It resulted in an even more fudgy texture, slightly crackly top, and ultra chewy mouthfeel. The brownie you have been dreaming of? I got you.
What changes did I make?
Although coconut oil may be a bit healthier than vegan butter I wanted to make these the best brownies they could be. Since butter has a higher fat content, it will aid the sugar in creating a nice crackly top. It also helps with the moist and fudginess of the brownie.
The original recipe had more flour, however, the last thing I want are these brownies to be cakey so I decreased the flour from 2 cups to 1 1/2. What happened? even more fudgy action!
I also did a bit of research on the science of baking an ultimate brownie and they recommended that you melt butter, get it hot, and stir in the sugar vigorously. This helps with the crackly top and chewy texture….
