No Guilt Peppermint Brownies Recipe with Peppermint Essential Oil
This healthy twist on chocolate brownies features Young Living peppermint essential oil.
These fudgy peppermint brownies may look and taste like the brownies you love, but they’re free of the things that your waistline doesn’t.
The flour, butter, and refined sugar are out in this recipe and replaced them with healthier ingredients such as coconut oil, honey, Peppermint essential oil and black beans. Do black beans sound weird? They may seem like a strange addition to a sweet recipe, but black beans provide a soft, gooey, fudgy texture and have almost no taste—allowing the bold flavours of the cocoa powder and Peppermint essential oil to shine through. Give this flourless peppermint brownie recipe a try.
