Fudgy Vegan Fudge Brownies
Adapted from Southern In Law
2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 cup dark cocoa powder
1 tbsp baking powder
1/3 cup brown sugar (if I make these again, I would use a lot more sugar – probably 3/4 cup)

Preheat oven to 180°C/355°F. Grease and/or line an 8×8 baking dish. In a large bowl mix together flour, cocoa, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add in oil and milk and stir until combined.  Pour brownie batter into baking dish and bake for 25-35 minutes or until cooked through and a skewer inserted removes clean.
