Low Fat Peppermint Patty Brownies (Gluten-Free)

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Package brownie mix (Gluten Free Pantry brand)
  • 2 egg replacements (Ener-G brand)
  • 1 cup coconut yogurt (vanilla flavour (or plain yogurt with 1 tsp vanilla extract))
  • 16 York Peppermint Patties

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8"x8" baking pan with parchment paper and cooking spray. In a large bowl, add egg replacer and water and whisk together until frothy about 2 minutes. Add entire bag of brownie package and mix until combined. Add the yogurt and mix until combined. Mixture will be thick.
  • Pour half the batter into the prepared pan and smooth evenly. Lay four rows of four peppermint patties to fill the pan. Press them gently into the batter, but not all the way to the bottom. Pour remaining batter over the patties and smooth. Bake for 27 to 29 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely. Freeze for 1 hour before cutting. Refrigerate before serving. Serve with a scoop of ice cream, fresh berries, and a sprig of mint for garnish if you want to be fancy or else just eat straight out of the pan.
