Yummy, fudge-y, amazing brownies are gluten free, dairy free and vegan. YES, they are! |

It took me forever to come up with this recipe.

Or should I say, “It took me forever to get it right.”

Yummy, fudge-y, amazing brownies are gluten free, dairy free and vegan. YES, they are! |

I think I tried 8000 different variations trying to get it to come out right. The taste was usually fine. In fact, I would say pretty good. But the texture or ability to stay together was always wrong.

Most of the time it would just fall apart if you tried to take it out with any kind of spatula. You could only get out with a spoon. Many spoonfuls.

But the problem with it all tasting good was that we had an overabundance of brownies in our house for over 2 weeks.

Every single day we had counters covered in brownies just asking to be eaten. So I just had to oblige.

I mean. How can you turn down brownies?

And we couldn’t have them sitting around all over the place. I had MORE brownies to make. I had to get this recipe right.

Do you know how hard it is to make gluten free, dairy free, vegan chocolate mint brownies? It ain’t easy, let me tell ya.

Well, let me take that back. Now it is easy. And super easy for you. Because I did all the work. And ate all the brownies.

Now my pants are tight.

You’re welcome.

    I love peppermint and chocolate together, it’s one of those classic awesome flavour combinations! Definitely craving a bite of one of these brownies right now.. they look seriously delicious.

      I have always been a freak for chocolate and peppermint together, too. Married a man after my own heart. And our kids love it, too. But then I realized that meant I had to share, now. 😉

    Thanks for doing all the hard work, Tia! Sorry about those tight pants. 😉 These brownies look fabulous! Thanks for sharing them on Gluten-Free Wednesdays with us all. 🙂


    • Tia

      No problem. I would say anytime, but I really want to wear some of my old clothes again. 😉 I am just so happy I can have brownies that taste like brownies. Yay!

    I have a child who is allergic to dairy.they do look good not sure how you are calling this dairy free when chocolate chips are made with milk.all chocolate has dairy unless its made with soy.

    • Tia

      Hi Tina,

      Well, the brownies are very good, and they are dairy free. Almost all semi-sweet chocolate chips are dairy free. To get chocolate chips made with milk, you have to look for “milk chocolate chips.” The ingredient list on a package I have right here from Trader Joes lists: cane sugar, unsweetened chocolate, cocoa butter, soy lecithin and vanilla extract. Maybe the cocoa butter is confusing. It was for me until I checked with my friend Alisa at Go Dairy Free. It’s not from cows. It’s the fatty substance from cocoa beans. Guess they call it butter because it is fatty. 😉

      We have been a dairy-free household for over 5yrs already! 🙂 (Recently now gluten as well due to celiac AND gluten sensitivities…) We have used Enjoy Life chocolate chips – no dairy, no gluten, no soy – free of the top 10 allergens! 🙂 We have also used Costco’s mini chocolate chips before our gluten-free days so not sure about them. But, the Enjoy Life ones are sooooo good!! They melt in your mouth even! They definitely do NOT taste waxy like some cheap ‘chocolate’ chips! They are made in a dedicated nut free and dedicated gluten free facility as well! Also vegan! And GMO free if that’s a concern!

      I seriously need to buy shares in the place, we’ve gone thru so many bags! lol!!

      Ingredients – evaporated cane juice, natural chocolate liquor (non-alcoholic), non-dairy cocoa butter – that’s it!! 🙂

    • Leah

      There is a brand called “Enjoy Life” that has allergen-free chocolate chips. They’re wonderful!

    Hi, I made these last night and even chopped up fresh mint for an extra kick and they were delicious! Only one problem, they totally collapsed in the middle after I took them out of the oven, despite having left them in a little longer. I didn’t have coconut butter so I used coconut oil instead and I used Monk Fruit sweetener instead of granulated white sugar. Could my substitutions had caused the middle to collapse? Thanks

    • Tia

      Hi Sean,

      While I’m not sure about the sugar substitute, I am pretty sure the coconut oil is what caused the collapse. I remember trying over and over and over again to make this recipe with coconut oil instead of coconut butter and it was always soup in the middle.
