Rose posted this recipe a few years ago on her blog: The Captious Vegetarian. I have made them recently and changed the recipe some. Here is my latest version. I brought them to the Sunshine Gardens potluck and I got asked for the recipe(by non-vegans).  So here it is.


  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 1.5 tsps. vanilla
  • 1 cup unbleached white flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 TBSPs. organic sugar
  • 1/4 cup Sucanat
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt. If using iodized salt 1/3 tsp.
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil and flour(with cocoa powder) an 8 inch square pan.
  2. Measure the oil, maple syrup, soy milk, and vanilla into a medium bowl. Whisk to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, sugar, Sucanat, baking powder and salt.
  4. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture with a rubber spatula. Don’t overmix.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Put the batter in the pan and spread it out evenly from the top with a fork. Mess as little as possible with the batter.
  7. Bake on top rack of oven for 35 minutes. Do not over-bake.
  8. Cool for a minimum of 30 minutes before cutting.
