Ultimate is not something that I throw around lightly, especially for vegan brownies. I've had my share of vegan and regular brownies and been baffled by how lacking vegan versions are. A good brownie should be dense, fudgy and soft; not light, cakey and dry. Why is it so hard to emulate a traditional brownie recipe that simply consists of a few simple ingredients? Hint: it's due to the egg, which emulsifies, binds, slightly leavens then bakes up as part of the actual base of the brownie itself. To emulate this takes an expedition deep into the innards of brownie science.
I started by emulating two eggs with water and golden flax meal. I then added some baking soda to the flour to emulate egg's subtle leavening tendencies. Cocoa powder along with semi-sweet chocolate and espresso powder allows the complex chocolate flavors to truly shine. I tested these brownies with canola oil but later settled on margarine because it allowed the flavor to mingle and slightly evolve along the flavor profile, rather than diminishing in a downward spiral which was the case with canola oil. This is why chocolate baked goods with canola oil rarely match up to chocolate baked goods with margarine. In order to make dense, soft vegan baked goods like brownies and cookies that are similar to their egg-laden counterparts the dough must be extremely thick because the egg is not going to be there to bake into the base of the baked item and act like flour. Thus, you have to add extra flour so it can take over for the egg. The result of this brownie R and D is a dense, fudgy, soft brownie with a complex chocolate flavor.

I adapted these soft and moist ginger cookies to make them vegan and they turned out even better than I remember. They also freeze wonderfully. I carefully froze the cookies in plastic wrap + ziplock bags (double wrapped) leading up to the wedding and they were as fresh as ever on the big day!
