(Vegan) Raspberry Chocolate Chip Brownies

I've been wanting to try this recipe for fudgey brownies from Basic Vegetarian for some time now. I finally had an excuse to bake, so I gave it a shot. They turned out pretty well. Though the recipe is not vegan, I veganized it.

I made a few changes:

  • sugar: 1 used 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 vegan
  • chocolate: I added 1/4 cup of chocolate to the Earth Balance/sugar mixture and let it melt.
  • raspberries: I added 1/2 cup of fresh raspberries that I bought from the local (organic) farm near me, Highland Orchards. There were some black raspberries in that quart that my kids were not fond of, so I wanted to use them up!
  • chocolate chips: I folded in about 1/3 of a cup into the batter.
  • milk: I used chocolate almond milk.
  • Espresso powder: As always, with everything chocolate, I added 1 tsp of it!

Check the recipe out for yourself!


  1. I also put espresso powder in all my chocolate baked goods; the added depth and richness of the chocolate flavor is so good! I've never had whole raspberries in brownies, although I have had some with a sauce-like raspberry topping. Using fresh fruit is a wonderful idea. :)

  2. Thanks, these were really yummy!
