Recipe: Vegan Brownies

Yummy Homemade Brownies.
I am by no means vegan (or remotely vegetarian), but my first roommate in Philly was.  One day I decided to make vegan brownies for him and this is my go to brownie recipe now.  (Also it's dairy free which is great since I am lactose intolerant.)  The recipe has gone through a few different versions, but this one is by far the best.

1 3/4 cup flour
1/4 coco powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 teas. baking powder
1 teas. salt
1 cup melted semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup soy milk (or any other milk alternative)
1/2 cup plain soy yogurt (or any other non dairy yogurt)
1 teas. vanilla 
1 medium sized banana

*Combine all dry ingredients into a bowl
*Using a double boiler melt semi sweet chips
*In a blender or food processor blend milk, yogurt, vanilla, and banana together
*When the chips are melted remove from heat and mix the banana mixture into the chocolate.  Make sure that the mixture is well combined
*Pour the chocolate mixture into the bowl of dry ingredience and mix till all ingredience are combined
*Pour brownie batter into a 8"x8" greased baking pan and bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 min. or untill the top of the brownies is solid and spingy to the touch.
