Accidentally Vegan Brownies

photoI’ve always loved brownies and I’ve found a few decent ways to make them vegan from scratch. I’ve missed being able to make things straight from a box so this is my first attempt at replacing eggs in an already vegan box of brownie mix. There are surprisingly quite a few vegan brownie mixes on grocery shelves and most can use apple sauce in place of eggs. Look for box recipes that require just 1 egg so that the final product turns out right. I brought these in for my coworkers and they ate the entire pan. The taste exactly like normal brownies but they do crumble a little easier than normal. Adding a tablespoon of cornstarch can help these hold together better. Here is what I made but you can basically sub 1/4 cup applesauce for 1 egg in any brownie mix.


  • 1 box of Duncan Hines Double Fudge Decadent Brownie Mix
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 vegetable oil
  • 1/4 applesauce

Follow instructions on the box and replace the egg with the apple sauce. Enjoy!
