“From Vegetarian Times September 2008, these are delicious brownies, that just happen to be vegan. But if you don't tell, no one will know, they are terrific! Feel free to add nuts or other goodies. You'll make these a bunch, so try something different each time. I've also made them in a mini muffin pan topped with red/green M&Ms for Christmas.”
