Super Delicious and Decadent Vegan Peppermint Brownies

There’s nothing that says Christmas like a peppermint-flavored dessert! I for one am obsessed with anything that’s chocolate and peppermint! Recently, my friend Melanie and I co-hosted a KEEP holiday party, a fun afternoon with girlfriends designing jewelry, sipping wine, and eating delicious food. A new recipe I made just for the occassion is a vegan peppermint brownie. This peppermint brownie is super fudgy, and perfect for a dark chocolate lover!

Easy to make vegan peppermint brownies - rich dark chocolate vegan brownies



  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 tsp 100% maple syrup
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract (or vanilla extract, but won’t turn out with as strong of a peppermint flavor)
  • 1 very ripe mashed banana
  • 1 Tbsp melted coconut oil or vegetable oil
  • Crushed candy canes (about 2)



  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Whisk together your flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together your applesauce, milk, maple syrup, extract, banana, and oil.
  4. Pour your wet mixture into your flour mixture, combining with a rubber spatula.
  5. Spray a brownie pan or cupcake tin with coconut oil, and place your brownie mixture in.
  6. Sprinkle your brownies with your crushed candy canes, and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool, then serve and enjoy!

For an even more decadent vegan dessert, I served these brownies with Trader Joe’s new coconut whipped cream, along with some more crushed candy cane pieces.

Happy holidays!
