Instructions

For the Gingerbread Brownies

  • Preheat oven to 200°C and line a baking tin.
  • Combine sugar, cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and ground ginger in a mixing bowl.
  • Get your linseed / flaxseed egg ready (by combining the milled linseed with the water).
  • Take the 200g of vegan chocolate, and melt over a bowl of hot water or in the microwave.
  • Once the chocolate has melted, take off the heat and let cool for a few minutes.
  • Mix the oil and plant milk together in a jug. Slowly add them, bit by bit, to the melted chocolate, stirring in as you do so.
  • Mix the linseed/flaxseed egg, and the chocolate mixture, into the flour mix.
  • Mix together to make a smooth batter.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips / chocolate chunks.
  • Carefully add and mix in the pieces of gingerbread biscuit.
  • Pour the mixture into your lined brownie tin, and smooth the top down.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer emerges clean.
  • Once done, let the brownies cool in the tin. Then remove from the tin, cut up and decorate (optional).

To Decorate (optional)

  • Make the buttercream icing by whipping together the vegan butter, icing / powdered sugar and maple syrup. Whip until creamy.
  • Put a dollop of the whipped mixture on each brownie and stick a gingerbread person / piece of gingerbread to it.
  • Enjoy with loved ones (or just for yourself!!).
