Why do you have 2 mince pie brownie recipes?
And yes there are 2 mince pie brownie recipes on our website (we love them that much) the first mince pie vegan and gluten-free chocolate brownies focuses on almond butter as a key ingredient, and contains less sugar, and is extremely fudgy and this recipe uses yoghurt contains more sugar and makes a more dense brownie. So you have a choice – either will be absolutely delicious.
Both mince pie brownie recipes are vegan and gluten-free.
Mincemeat – OK we think you should make your /our mincemeat. We promise it’s not complicated and tastes better than any shop-bought, its fruiter, juicer and you can add control whether it’s your favourite festive tipple that goes in or a fruit juice.
Use good chocolate – not your super fancy stuff, savour that, but good quality at least 72% dark chocolate – for a really intense dark chocolate flavour go to 85%.
You can use cocoa powder but we like to raise the game and use cacao powder- it’s richer, its more – well chocolatey.
How long will the mince pie brownies keep?
There is a lot of joy in any great brownie straight from the oven, but store these beauties in an airtight container for a couple of days and the flavour improves with every day. We’ve never managed to have any left past day 4.
Can I freeze them? Yes, place a square of baking paper between them so that they don’t stick together in the freezer -then put them in a freezer-proof container or wrap in foil. We like to store them in 2’s.
Are mince pie brownies just for winter?
These may seem to you like a seasonal, winter brownie recipe but as we make a double batch of our easy mincemeat recipe – so a jar can develope its flavour over the year ready for the following Christmas. This means we can dip into the jar through the year when we feel like making a mince pie tart or these scrumptious brownies – sorry if that sounds a little smug.
So, they are a Christmas brownie but you can make them in July too.
