Gluten Free Peppermint Brownies

Hello Gluten Free Peppermint Brownies -  let the holiday recipes begin! I know it is only November.. but in Chicago this weather feels like December or even January at this point. Yikes! Also, I am always early with this stuff - I am a seasons girl. I love this time of year for creating some new, fun, healthier versions of baked goods for the holidays. I love gingerbread flavors, peppermint and of course, chocolate! These are my holiday brownies and I am so excited for you guys to make. 

What you need: 

  • Greek Yogurt (You can use Coconut cream or non-dairy "greek yogurt" too)
  • Egg
  • Maple Syrup
  • Peppermint Extract
  • Coconut Sugar
  • Cocoa Powder (you want it to be a baking version so it is not too bitter)
  • Almond Flour 
  • Baking Powder
  • Dark Chocolate Chips / Dairy Free Chocolate Chips 
  • Some chocolate hazelnut butter for spreading on top! So good!

I love using greek yogurt in baking because it adds an amazing texture and of course, some protein. If you are dairy free, make sure the yogurt alternative is "greek style" and thicker. If it is too runny the texture may not work.
