These brownies are from The Joy of Vegan Baking, by Colleen Patrick Goudreau. Besides being vegan, they don't contain any oil or margarine, and are still the richest, chewiest brownies around. The trick is apple sauce - they don't have an apple sauce flavor, but there is almost a cup of apple sauce in the recipe. I love these, but tend to eat them way to quickly whenever I make them. And since they're chocolate-heavy, the dogs can't help.
