Earl Grey Brownies (Gluten Free + Vegan)

If you know me, you know that I almost always have a hot cup of tea in my hand. One of my all time favorite teas is Earl Grey tea and I love making London Fogs! So, naturally, I decided to attempt to make a recipe with Earl Grey tea and created these tasty, vegan, gluten-free, brownies that taste like cake… but better!

EARL GREY BROWNIES

DRY INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 cups Gluten-Free Flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips

WET INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 teabags earl grey tea steeped in 1/4 cups hot water for 5 minutes
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/8 cup maple syrup

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Steep earl grey teabags in hot water for approximately 5 minutes. While tea is steeping, melt coconut oil. Combine all wet ingredients into a bowl and then add in dry ingredients. Prepare a cake pan with parchment paper and then pour batter into pan. Bake at 375 for around 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
