Double Chocolate Almond Brownies with Peppermint Essential oil

If you like Brownies you are going to love these ones.

These are gluten free, double chocolate yumminess with a hint of Peppermint essential oil. This is Haven. At least in my opinion. I use Young Living Essential Oil for many reasons. If you are interested in purchasing your own oils, click Here.

Now lets get started:


1/2 cup butter
4 oz semi-sweet chocolate
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
8-10 drops Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil               
2 Eggs room temperature
1 1/2 cups Almond Flour
2/3 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped almonds


1. Preheat oven to 350 F Degrees and lightly butter an 8 inch baking pan.
2. Melt butter and chocolate in a medium saucepan over very low heat.
3. Stir in sugars, vanilla, and peppermint oil; set aside to cool.
4. Add room temperature eggs ave beat well to incorporate. Stir in almond flour and well. Then stir in chocolate chips and almonds.
5. Spread evenly in prepared pan; bake for 30 to 35 min or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
6. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.

Makes 1 dozen brownies
Store in container with a loose-fitting lid.

This recipe was adopted from Blue Diamond Almonds and it's super yummy.


P.S. Young living has a clearly marked indigestible essential oils: They are called the Vitality oils. This is the peppermint one I used.
