Delicious Brownies for Lazy Vegans

Not only am I a picky vegan, sometimes I’m lazy, too!  Okay, maybe not so much lazy as busy, but lazy sounds funnier.  So I bring you a very easy brownie:  it comes from a mix.  One you, yes you, can find at your local grocery store (at least here in the States).

The Duncan Hines Family Style Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix happens to be vegan, so long as you leave the egg out.  I used a flax egg replacer (1 Tbs ground flax to 3 Tbs water for each egg to be replaced) and otherwise followed the directions on the box.
I also used Pillsbury’s Coconut Pecan Frosting.  It’s very sweet, but I like it that way.  As near as I can tell the frosting is vegan.  It does have added mono-glycerides, but those have been verified vegan for some of the other flavors, so I’m assuming it’s the same here.
Also, this is my first VeganMoFo post!

    I have to admit, one of my friends told me the mix was vegan- I just had to read the ingredients for myself to verify! I am very glad to have that information, though. They are mighty tasty.
