Ultra-chocolate Vegan Brownies

Of all the baked goods I’ve tried to “veganize” brownies have been the trickiest. My first attempt ended up with a dense cookie-like slab that very strongly resembled Snackwells Devil’s Food cake. Not a hit. Other versions have just been altered chocolate cakes. I finally adapted a Vegetarian Times recipe to match our level of chocolate (high!) and sugar (low!) preferences.
