Chocolate Mint Brownies

Oh my…this dessert is a little piece of heaven. I am a huge fan of mint (as well as my husband). And then there is chocolate…I love my chocolate! I should clarify I LOVE dark chocolate.

The raw cacao powder in this recipe is loaded with antioxidants and iron. I “snuck” in some Flaxseed meal which adds dietary fiber and a fantastic boost of Omega 3’s to the recipe as well.

It’s the first day of December and I am ready for the Holiday Season. I have the wreath on my door and the Christmas tree will go up this weekend. I hope you find some time for yourself to rest and enjoy this delicious treat. Happy Holidays!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup blanched almond flour

1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. cacao powder
1 tsp. baking soda
2/3 cup Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips
3 Tbsp. ghee  (or butter)
