I am from the south, I guess maybe not the “deep south” as I am from Florida and mostly have lived in big cities. However, after moving to Tallahassee, I feel like this is the only time I have really lived in the south. I discovered the love people have for red velvet here. I also found a lot of love for this classic and decided I would give it a little update. Please enjoy!!

Ingredients:

1/2 C. Vegan butter ( I use Earth Balance)

1 1/2 C. Sugar

2 Flax eggs (2 Tbsp. Flax meal + 3 Tbsp water = 1 egg)

2 tsp. Vanilla

1/4 tsp. Salt

1 1/4 C. All purpose flour

3 Tbsp. Cocoa powder

3 Tbsp. Almond milk

2 Tbsp. Vegan red food coloring

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350. Cream together sugar and earth balance.

2. Add flax eggs and vanilla

3. Sift flour and cocoa and salt.

4. Add dry ingredients to wet a little at a time.

5. Add milk and food coloring.

6. Spread in an 8×8 greased pan and bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Cookies and Cream layer:

20 sandwich cookies  ( I like Joe Joe’s but oreos or anything works)

2 Tbsp. Vegan cream cheese( I used follow your heart)

Combine in a food processor and process until becomes creamy.

Spread on top of cooled brownies.

Chocolate ganache:

Melt 8oz. Dark chocolate and pour over cookie layer.

Chill for at least an hour. Cut and devour!
