  18. The Vegan Zombie on November 17, 2012: (Reply)

    Thanks, glad you like them. I’ve tried other recipes but this one isn’t too
    cakey or fudgy.

  19. calendarpage on December 18, 2012: (Reply)

    I notice with your baking vids you tell people to test with a ‘small
    stick.’ Huh? Who’s got a clean small stick around the house? People who
    don’t cook get freaked out when they don’t have a specific ingredient or
    tool; they don’t know how to substitute. Tell folks to test with a
    toothpick (a very small stick, if you will) or a knife. They are more
    likely to have those items available and won’t risk being eaten by zombies
    when they go outside looking for small sticks.

    I may not be vegan, but I love this channel since the dude is funny, the
    recipe’s are good and I can cook now to appease my fiance’s diet/lifestyle.
    Warning though, where I live its expensive for some of the ingredients but
    we both have good enough jobs to afford the ingredients needed. Thankyou

    The day you teach us how to make the faux fried chicken is the day I will
    show up at your door and give you the recipe for my version to Grandma’s
    Secret Apple Pie! (vegan recipe… I’m still shocked to this day because
    she never does a dish without either butter, milk or eggs).

    Maybe it’s just that I am stoned, but did you mention what temperature to
    bake at?

  43. The Vegan Zombie on April 3, 2013: (Reply)

    350* 🙂

  44. Winnaykinz on April 4, 2013: (Reply)

    Would it be all right to use Earth Balance’s coconut “buttery” spread
    instead of the original? Or will its consistency and taste muck up the
    recipe? Gonna make these for my university’s environmental bake sale 🙂

  45. The Vegan Zombie on April 5, 2013: (Reply)

    It should work fine 🙂

  55. hardcoregenre7 on May 26, 2013: (Reply)

    what other options would be ok in the place of sugar??? thanks in advance

  56. The Vegan Zombie on May 28, 2013: (Reply)

    You could use steevia. You could use agave or coconut nectar but you’d have
    to adjust the dry ingredients a bit.

  57. Omni WizRad on June 21, 2013: (Reply)

    This dude is tripping out…

  58. ladyc19ful on June 22, 2013: (Reply)

    Why do you need peenut butter

    It took him 40 minutes to make the dog a bowl of dog food? lmfaoooo

  62. The Vegan Zombie on July 3, 2013: (Reply)

    Earth Balance

  63. molochai on July 3, 2013: (Reply)

    I tried this recipe and the brownies were DELICIOUS! they don’t sell vegan
    butter here in Spain, so I used margarine and they came out great.

  64. DJ Phree on July 3, 2013: (Reply)

    I understand that my friend, I think I typed with the emphasis on the wrong
    syllable lol. I meant an alternative to the vegan butter alternative “Earth
    Balance” such as an oil or something? Sorry for the misunderstanding. My
    english sucks booty.

  65. itsMinuteMaid on July 4, 2013: (Reply)

    Couple questions. One, if I omit the chocolate chips as well as the agave,
    will the brownies still be sweet enough? Also, I was thinking about adding
    nuts. Have you tried that with this recipe, and how’d it come out?

  66. The Vegan Zombie on July 4, 2013: (Reply)

    The chocolate chips you can leave out. Were you going to replace the agave
    with anything else? The dry measurements may need to be adjusted if you do
    this. I love walnuts and most others, but I absolutely hate them in
    brownies and cookies so I’ve never added them to this recipe.

  67. The Vegan Zombie on July 4, 2013: (Reply)

    Glad you liked them!!

  68. itsMinuteMaid on July 4, 2013: (Reply)

    Na, I was just gonna leave out the agave altogether. But it’s cool, I
    lazied out and just bought a box of vegan brownie mix and some vegan egg
    replacer. It’s probably gonna suck, but whatev. Thanks for the help tho.

  69. The Vegan Zombie on July 5, 2013: (Reply)

    Yeah, vegan brownies are tricky, but after many attempts, this is the
    perfect recipe.

  70. ohhitherejoanna on July 30, 2013: (Reply)

  71. AMERICANCAKES on August 15, 2013: (Reply)

    AGAVE NECTAR???…oh…I can’t find it here…tell me another thing,

  72. Sammy Sweet on August 18, 2013: (Reply)

    Forgive me for asking about the peanut butter! 😛 But I am allergic to
    peanuts, is it necessary?

  77. Daniel Huertas on October 8, 2013: (Reply)

    well…that cup of white processed table sugar is as bad as the
    hydrogenated oils you escaped from.. but anyways, it’s replaceable 😉 nice
    recipe man!

  78. luftigaa on October 28, 2013: (Reply)
