This is the first actual recipe I tried using essential oils. I 100% found this baby on Pinterest and now make them for every Essential Oils 101 class I teach.

Here ya go!

Peppermint Brownies

Coconut Flour Peppermint Brownies

Ingredients:

3 Tablespoons Coconut Flour

1/4 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder

1/4 cup of maple syrup or honey (or 1/2 and 1/2 of both)

5 Tablespoons melted butter

1 egg

2 drops Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil (if doubling stick to 3 drops)

Instructions:

It’s really easy. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Put all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir to incorporate everything. Pour in a small pan (I used a glass bread pan). Cook for 30 minutes. Let cool in pan for as long as you can, ideally like 30 mins…otherwise it kinda falls apart. If you want to double the recipe, use an 8×8 pan. Triple it for a bigger pan. They are pretty rich and dense so a little goes a long way.
