New Year’s Eve Peppermint Brownies

Are you looking for a little splurge to ring in the New Year? Sweet treats are often problematic for IBS, but these brownies are digestion-friendly and spectacularly delicious! They’re low fat, dairy free, and have a good soluble fiber foundation. Have a choco-licious new year!

2 tablespoons Acacia Tummy Fiber
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup boiling water
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 cups sugar
4 egg whites
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon peppermint extract

Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray a 9 x 13″ baking pan with cooking oil and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the acacia, cocoa and baking soda. Blend in the oil, and mix until smooth. Pour in the boiling water, stirring until the mixture thickens. Stir in the applesauce, the sugar, and the egg whites. Mix until smooth.

Add the flour, vanilla, and peppermint. Blend completely – there should be no lumps. Pour into the prepared baking pan. Spread the batter evenly to avoid crispy edges.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes (25-30 minutes if using a Pyrex pan), until just set in the middle. Let cool and cut into squares.

For an extra-minty soothing dessert, serve the brownies with a wonderful cup of hot Peppermint Tummy Tea!
