  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon peppermint extract

YumEarth Dark Chocolate Mint Choco Yums Brownies


  1. Preheat oven to 350º and prepare a square 8x8 pan with parchment paper.
  2. Next, prepare the 'flax egg’ by mixing the ground flaxseeds with water (2.5 Tbsp water and 1 Tbsp ground flax.)  Allow the mixture to rest for approximately 5-7 minutes or until it thickens to a gel like consistency.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl combine the butter and dark chocolate chips. Microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring well between each time, until completely melted and smooth.
  4. In a large mixing bowl combine sugars together and mix in the melted chocolate.
  5. Next add in vanilla extract, peppermint extract, and flax egg, mixing thoroughly.
  6. Add in cocoa powder, flour blend, and salt. Mixing until just combined - you don’t want to over mix. Fold in half a cup of YumEarth Mint Choco Yums.
  7. Pour the batter into the lined baking pan and top with remaining half cup of YumEarth Dark Chocolate Mint Choco Yums. Bake for 30 minutes.
  8. Allow brownies to cool completely, approximately 15 minutes, before lifting out of the pan. Cut into 9 large squares or 12 regular sized pieces and ENJOY!
