Mint Chocolate Brownies

@simplysarahswainson

Ingredients:

  • 4 mint Rickaroons
  • 1 cup almond flour (from trader joe’s)
  • ½ cup of almond milk (from @califiafarms)
  • ¼ cup of raw cacao powder (from @omg_superfoods)
  • ¼ cup of raw sugar (optional if you want it sweeter)
  • 1tbs almond butter (ALDI brand)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ cup of mini chocolate chips + extra for topping

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Start by adding the Rickaroons into a blender and blend on high until there are no clumps
  3. Add in remaining ingredients except for the egg and the chocolate chips
  4. Blend on medium speed until well combined
  5. Add in the egg and blend again just until the egg is well incorporated
  6. Pour batter into a greased brownie pan (8x8 is what I used), and stir the chocolate chips into the batter
  7. If desired, sprinkle more chocolate chips on top to be spread around after baking (makes a sort of icing which is highly recommended)
  8. Bake brownies at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
  9. Remove from the oven and use a knife to spread around the top layer of chocolate chips
  10. Allow to cool completely before cutting and serving
  11. Enjoy!
