Delicious dairy-free and egg-free brownies with a subtle spice flavour. You can omit the coconut if you're not a fan. be careful not to overcook them.
I'm not especially experienced with baking. I followed the recipe almost exactly, aside from leaving out the coconut and brewing my tea with 1/4 cup soymilk and 1/4 cup water, as a reviewer suggested. I used Stash Premium Chai Spice black tea, which uses exactly the spices called for in Masala Chai tea. I baked it right at 20 minutes and stuck a toothpick in the middle. It came out clean, so I took them out of the oven and let them sit. When I cut them, they were very moist but really didn't fall apart. One corner crumbled a tiny bit so I did what any noble baker would do: I ate it. Delish. - 27 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I used sweetened coconut instead, since that is all I could find at my store. I also only used 1T of cocoa powder for the bottom of the 8x8 pan. For a light dusting, that was even too much and I ended up dumping some of it out. Even with that, these are amazing brownies. Incredibly soft and moist. - 12 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Holy cow these are amazing! Definitely needed less than 2 Tbsp for dusting. Used a heaping 1/3 cup coconut (mmmm) which I ran through my small mixer thing. The chai: used two teabags steeped in 1/4 cup warm coconut milk and 1/4 cup hot water; strained the bags and then - aw, what the heck - opened them up and added the tea contents! I only had an 8x11 so they baked longer than 20 minutes (and remained "shiny"). Five of us for dinner - there are few remaining! Can't wait to make them again! - 12 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
