Vegan Brownies

Recipe by Katie Coleman

I wanted a brownie as moist and delicious as the non-vegan version. I think I nailed it with this one, with a little sweet-tart surprise. (Totally Optional) I added cranberries, but nuts, candied orange peel or any fruit would be amazing.

Beat in Mashed Banana and combine until smooth.

Transfer Batter (it will be thick) to pan, and even out.
