What if I told you I could make brownies without butter? Probably doable, right?
How about without eggs? Hmmm, getting trickier. How will you keep them together without eggs?
Now, what if I told you I made brownies with no eggs, no dairy, AND added blueberries! What?! Get outta here!
Using the Fudgy Wudgy Blueberry Brownie recipe from Veganomicon, that’s exactly what I did. And guess what? They’re awesome!! I took them to the office and actually got good reviews. Even great reviews! And the comments weren’t what you would expect: “I guess they’re ok for healthy brownies, BigSis. Better than no brownie at all”.
They’re moist, they’re unbelievably chocolatey, and you really can’t figure out what’s different about them. I guess blueberries have such a mild flavor usually, that the brownies don’t scream “BLUEBERRY!!!!”
These guys have 3 chocolates (I used vegan), fresh blueberries, and a whole jar of blueberry spread. Plus the usual suspects: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, canola oil, vanilla and almond extract,
They aren’t completely without guilt, but at least you get a little fruit with your chocolate.
