2 cups One Degree Organics Sprouted Red Fife Flour
1 cup raw cane sugar
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup vegan butter or coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
3/4 cup almond milk
1 tsp peppermint extract

1 1/2 cups vegan chocolate chips

Chocolate Ganache:
1 1/2 cups vegan chocolate chips, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 8 x 11 baking dish.

In a large bowl, combine the Sprouted Red Fife Flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil or butter, apple sauce, almond milk, peppermint extract and vanilla extract.

Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Pour into prepared baking dish and bake for 35-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow the brownies to cool before frosting with the ganache.

To prepare the ganache, melt the chocolate chips and stir in the vegan butter and peppermint extract. Add additional butter if needed to have smooth, spreadable ganache.

Spread the ganache thickly over the brownies and sprinkle with the crushed candy canes.
