10 Days of Cookies - Day 4 - Vegan Brownies


 So I decided to try and experiment with some vegan baking.  One of my midwives is vegan and I wanted to bake up a container of miscellaneous treats for all my midwives.  They were all amazing and over the course of the last 10 months have taken such good care of me and my baby that I had to thank them.  It will be hard to let them go next week when I will have to switch care over to my doctor.  When my husband and I go for baby #2 I will definitely be going back to these midwives.

This recipe didn't call for egg replacer but has anyone tried it before?
