I'm intrigued by this lentil brownie recipe but am trying to think about the best way to veganize it.

Chocolate Lentil Brownies

Ingredients:

½ cup butter
½ cup lentil puree
¾ cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
¾ tsp salt
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts (optional)

Preparation:

Melt butter; mix in lentil puree, cocoa, sugar, and salt. Add eggs, one at a time. Mix in vanilla, flour, chocolate chips (and walnuts).

Bake in a greased 9x13 inch pan at 350 F (175 C) for 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.

*Lentil puree: place cooked or rinsed and drained canned lentils into a food processor. Or every 1 cup lentils, add ¼ cup water. Blend to make a smooth puree with a consistency like canned pumpkin. If needed, add additional water 1 tbsp at a time.


My biggest concern is how to best replace the three eggs. Usually I can get away with replacing one egg or two with these substitutes, but when I try to replace more than that things can get...crumbly. Any thoughts?
