Double Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Brownies {gf,v}

Updated: Mar 14, 2021

When you start making chocolate crinkle cookies and they turn into double chocolate peppermint crunch brownies... I'm not complaining. I love this brownie recipe because it's the classic, chocolatey brownie with a festive twist. The base of these brownies is double chocolate, so the touch of peppermint comes from the crushed peppermint candy. Other nutrient dense ingredients in this recipe include: almond flour, pure maple syrup, coconut sugar, free range eggs, pure vanilla, and more. These brownies are super simple, and having brownies as a dessert option for the holidays is always a must! Plus, these ones are gluten free and dairy free.
