Vegan Mint Chocolate Brownies

Introducing Mint Chocolate Brownies!

Regular brownies are boring, so I thought, why not add a fresh touch to that would go well with chocolate? Here comes the mint. I have always been a fan of mint thins. Chocolate and mint is probably my favorite combination. Well, peanut butter and chocolate is not bad either, but in the summer I prefer something with a fresh flavor.

These brownies are super rich in chocolate, moist on the inside, and covered with a mint glaze. These are DEFINITELY crowd-pleasers.

The batter is really easy to prepare, you just need one bowl and 5 minutes. I used all-purpose flour, but I’m sure gluten-free flour would work well, too. Let me know how it turns out if you try!

I added some expresso powder to the batter to highlight the chocolate flavor, but feel free to omit it if you prefer. You can substitute it with instant coffee if you don’t have expresso powder on hand.

The glaze is made of icing sugar, almond milk, peppermint extract, and matcha tea. If you are not familiar with it, matcha tea is a green tea that has been grounded into a fine powder. It has a vibrant green color. I only used it here to bring a nice green color to the glaze. The whole mint flavor comes from the peppermint extract.

Have you got some fresh mint? For a flavor kick, finely chop 5 mint leaves and add them to the batter!

I served these brownies cold, with a thick and creamy vanilla sauce for dessert. You can eat them at room temperature like regular brownies, but we prefer them straight from the fridge. The mint flavor is more intense, and the brownies are a little bit firmer.

I made these brownies yesterday (minus the frosting) within an hour of coming across the recipe; a record for me! There are so many things I love about this:
– doesn’t call for nut butters (or flax eggs) but for simple, everyday ingredients that everyone has on hand
– comes together in minutes
– perfect texture, moistness, and density; not too light and not too heavy (I used half oat flour/half regular flour)
– flavor is spot on (this is properly salted!). I love the combination of chocolate and mint but didn’t add any mint for this first batch because my husband isn’t such a fan…
These are my new favorite brownies, and I will definitely be recommending this recipe to others!
