These Paleo Peppermint Glazed Brownies are a delicious treat. Rich fudgy brownies topped with a simple glaze. They are gluten free, dairy free, and naturally sweetened.
Easy Paleo Brownies
These brownies are rich and fudgy and so irresistible. My go-to when brownie and good even on their own. Sweetened with maple syrup or honey (I’ve made them both ways) and easy to whip up. A little peppermint extract is added for the perfect mint flavor without being too overpowering.
Coconut butter is the base of the glaze which is always my go-to. It’s creamy and drizzles perfectly. A little maple syrup is added for sweetness and then water to thin it out. This really adds nice sweetness and of course it’s pretty. A little mint extract can be added here too if you want them a touch more minty.
Nut Free Brownies with Vegan Option
These are completely nut free. The brownies use coconut flour as the flour instead of the popular almond flour that is commonly used in paleo baking. The topping is coconut butter and some melted chocolate chips if you’d like. A super tasty nut free dessert that everyone will love!
I have also made these vegan by using flax eggs in place of the eggs and maple syrup in place of the honey. So know that that definitely works if you’re working around dietary restrictions or allergies. To make 2 flax eggs, mix 2 tablespoons flax meal with 6 tablespoons water and let sit for 5 minutes to thicken.
