Looking for something fun to prepare for Halloween?! I’ve got you covered. These mummy brownies are the perfect spooooky dessert! (Not to mention, they can be made vegan and gluten-free – without sacrificing taste! So they’re a real treat if you ask me!)
Chocolatey Chunk Brownies
*This recipe makes a 9x13” batch of brownies
What You’ll Need:
- 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (to make these babies gluten-free, use Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Baking Flour – the BLUE and clear packaging)
- 1 ½ cups white sugar
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- ¼ cup almond milk
- 3 eggs (to make these vegan, make 3 flax eggs*)
- 1 cup vegetable oil or Eath Balance (melted)
- 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Preheat the oven to 350-degrees F. Prepare a 9x13” baking pan with your favorite nonstick spray.
- In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: the flour, sugars, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder. Whisk until thoroughly blended.
- In a sepate bowl, combine almond milk, eggs or flax eggs, and vegetable oil or Eath Balance.
- Combine the dry and wet ingredients using a handheld mixer on “low” speed. Spread batter into the baking pan and bake for approximately 25 minutes,being careful not to overcook.
For the Frosting:
What You'll Need:
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 3 tbsp. softened Earth Balance or coconut shortening
- 4-6 tbsp. warm Almond Milk
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- Add the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and Earth Balance or shortening to a mixing bowl and blend until incorporated. Add in 2 tbsp. of the warm almond milk and blend on low, then 2 more tbsp. until a thick frosting begins to form. Add 2 more tbsp. of almond milk if you want a thinner frosting.
You can use this frosting immediately, or store in a sealed container for a week in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
To Assemble the Mummy Brownies:
Scoop the frosting into a large Ziploc bag. Cut a small corner off one of the bottom sides, and squeeze the frosting out of that corner. Frost a cooled brownie from left to right to make it into a “mummy”.
