Mint Brownie Recipe From Scratch

Mint Brownie Recipe From Scratch

I’ve been on a mint wave for the past couple of weeks and so this mint brownie recipe from scratch is my latest creation. πŸ™‚ 

We had our first couple blind date earlier this week (my partner invited over a friend and his wife both of whom I’d never met before) and I was excited and nervous! I made a few Indian dishes for the main meal but I wanted a killer dessert. I also needed a dessert that was vegan and grain-free (there are a lot of dietary restrictions in our house currently) and wanted to use mint. Simply because I.LOVE.MINT. πŸ™‚ I experimented with this mint brownie recipe from scratch and it was absolutely perfect. 

According to our guest, “This is at least as good as a ‘normal’ brownie.” I’ll take it! This is one of those recipes that I’ll make again and again. πŸ™‚ 

This bad boy is vegan, grain-free, paleo, nut-free and refine sugar free. It kind of doesn’t get cleaner (and tastier) than this. πŸ˜›
