Vegan Peppermint Brownies (Gluten-free)
Fudgy, rich and chocolatey, these gluten-free vegan peppermint brownies make a delicious holiday treat. They're finished with a minty icing, ready to be served as a Christmas dessert.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/350 F and lightly grease a square baking tin with vegan butter.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground flaxseeds and water, and set aside for 10 minutes.
In a different mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut sugar, rice flour, cornmeal, baking powder, cacao powder, xanthan gum and salt.
Add the vegan butter, dark chocolate and peppermint extract and whisk together once more.
Pour the batter into the baking tin and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Try not to overbake as this will make the texture less fudgy.
Meanwhile, prepare the icing by stirring together the vegan butter, icing sugar, plant based milk, food coloring and peppermint extract.
Allow the brownies to cool for 5 minutes before drizzling with the icing, slicing and serving.
