vegan mofo, day 9: brownies.

i do not like brownies.

seriously.

is that weird? i mean, i don't NOT like brownies. i do not object to eating them. but they don't excite me much. cookies and cake are just so much better.

i decided to give brownies another chance with happy herbivore's recipe from her sneak-peek cookbook. i used half dark chocolate, half regular.



the results? tasty enough to please a non-brownie eater for sure. these might have almost cured me from my apathy towards the little brown goodies. hooray!

No, that's not weird.. at least, not in my opinion, since I'm not that big a fan of chocolate or brownies either.

But that recipe looks good...

I like brownies, but I too do not love them. I'd much rather eat a cupcake!

What's wrong with you?! ;) I'm kidding, of course, but my brain won't compute not liking brownies. (This coming from someone who scarfed nearly half a pan of them after work today... Haha.) Glad to hear you liked these, though! And there are plenty of delicious goodies in the dessert world that aren't brownies. :)

HH's brownies are awesome! If there's a brownie that recipe that will convert you - that's the one! Your batch looks so gooey and delicious! Man, now you made me hungry for brownies!!

I'm a carob girl, so I LOOOOVE carob brownies (not the chocolate ones) - maybe try a carob version?? ;0)

I totally agree with you, cookies and cakes are so much more intresting and you can throw anything in there to make any flavor. But what am I saying, I was going to make those brownies one of these days. I just get carried away with other recipes...namely ones with pumpkin in them =)

Thanks for the SAT tip! I have already taken it before, a few months ago, but I wasn't pleased with my score so I am taking it again.
Aww that's cute, hehe. Did she ever discover the difference inbetween "environement" and "vitamins" ?
Awwwm I think I agree with Jess, I LOVE brownies, but I can never find a brownie like vegan brownie recipe! All the recipes I have tried have a cakey texture, yuck. If I want a BROWNIE, i would eat a BROWNIE and not CAKE! haha. Of course that's the same thing with any food, if I want a certain food, it must taste that way!
Mm... A brownie craving is commencing due to the scrumptious brownie picture!

I wish I didn't like brownies! ;)
That's really cool, there's a recipe for good vegan brownies!

Sanja said...

Hmm, maybe I should try those too then, because I'm not super fond of brownies either.

I am not a big chocolate eater. I like hot chocolate in the winter, but that pretty much sums it up. I would rather eat homemade bread. Now DH on the other hand would eat your entire plate of brownies and say thank you. :o)

Mmmm. I'm a huge brownie addict so I can't even imagine not loving them, though it would probably be better for my health.
