Ingredients

3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup melted soy ice cream (the volume will reduce as it melts, so start with a little more than half a cup)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (optional)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 8" square brownie pan.

Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Whisk together the melted soy ice cream, vegetable oil, sugar and vanilla. Fold in the dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts, if using. Pour into your prepared pan -- the mixture will be somewhat thick, so use a spatula or your fingers to make sure the mixture is distributed evenly to the edges of the pan. Bake about 15-20 minutes -- the top should be set, but a tester should still have a bit of fudgey goo instead of set crumbs. Remove from the oven, let cool, and devour. Like most brownies, these are best when they've set for at least an hour.
