Simply A (RD) Fact: Did you know that 1 tablespoon of natural, unsweetened cocoa powder has two grams of fiber?
  • 3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup natural cocoa powder (like Hershey's)
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups water
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoon white distilled vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chips + extra for garnish
  • ½ cup chopped pecans + extra for garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9"x13" baking pan with parchment paper - make sure to cover the sides! (I use binder clips to hold the parchment in place!) Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, sift flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt together. Set aside.
  3. In a liquid measuring cup, combine water, vegetable oil, vinegar, and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
  4. Pour wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir gently to combine. Add in the chocolate chips and the pecans and stir to incorporate.
  5. Pour the batter into the greased pan and spread batter out evenly. Sprinkle over some chocolate chips and pecans. Pop the pan into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Serve up and enjoy with family and friends!
