Vegan After Eight Brownies

This blog is all about what’s good for your skin, both in how you nourish your body and how you look after your face. These are neither good for your skin or overall health. However, in looking after your physical health, you also need balance to look after your mental health. And every now and again you just need a brownie. These ‘After Eight’ vegan brownies are quick, deliciously gooey and make the perfect Sunday bake.

This recipe is vegan, nut free (optional depending on milk choice) and soy free.

Serves 12. 


  • 170g self raising flour
  • 170g light brown sugar
  • 1 cup dairy free milk (I used sweetened almond)
  • 4tbsp sunflower oil
  • 3tbsp raw cacao
  • 100g dark peppermint chocolate
  • 10 vegan mint thins (I used Tesco own brand)
  • 1tsp vanilla extract



  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and line an oven friendly baking dish.
  2. Melt your chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of boiling water.
  3. Sieve your flour and raw cacao to ensure a smooth mixture. Once done, stir in the sugar until dry ingredients are fully combined.
  4. Now stir in the melted chocolate, oil, vanilla and milk until fully combined. Mixture should be quite thick.
  5. Now pour approximately two thirds of your mixture into your lined baking dish.
  6. Then place mint thins over this layer. It should take about 8-10 to cover the bottom layer.
  7. Pour the remaining mixture into over the top of the mint thin layer.
  8. Place on the middle shelf of the oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes.
  9. When brownies are cooked, allow them to cool and set for at least 5 minutes then slice into twelve pieces.

    1. Good luck! They’re pretty easy to make and they’re rather gooey so if you ‘burn’ them the worst that happens is they’ll get a little dry. You can’t really go too wrong! x

  1. Ooooh these look so yummy!! I’ve just had to start a dairy and gluten free diet so these have popped up just at the right time, I wonder if they’ll still be just as scrumptious with gluten free flour… only one way to find out!

    1. I tried them once with gf flour (I prefer a gf diet too) and they were a bit dry and stodgy so I’d recommend more liquids and you’ll probably have to check them a few more times when you’re cooking them to make sure they’re not getting too dry but good luck! Let me know how you get on x

    1. I started eating a vegan about two and a half years ago and in the beginning it sucked trying to find treats. I’m yet to buy any kind of dessert that isn’t a bit bland and gross. On the plus side it definitely makes you more creative (and a better cook). Hope you enjoy! x

  2. This looks so decadent. I am not a vegan but I respect them so much. I would love to try out this recipe my dad loves after8 chocolates and knowing that it’s vegan makes it even more special.

  3. Oh these look yummy a nice little twist adding the mint thins in. I am not sure if I could have these as they might have a may contain warning for mil but could use a different chocolate instead. I cant wait to give them a try.

  4. These look delicious! I want to try some vegan baking even though I’m not vegan myself. I just think occasionally having healthy alternatives is probably good for your body – plus it’s a bit of a challenge!
