Peppermint Brownie Details

Yum, yum, yum!! You guys are going to LOVE these! I’ve been wanting to create my own version of grain-free brownies, and y’all, I finally did it! I’m always trying to make traditional sweets a bit more healthy. Brownies are one of Luke and my favorite treats, especially during the holiday season. I accomplished this by using almond flour, honey, ghee and almond butter. So this means they are very GOOEY rather than cakey, which I prefer! AND great news, these brownies are gluten and grain FREE!

To give them a holiday twist, I added in a bit of peppermint. These are one of Luke’s favorites… he ate almost the entire batch this week! 🙂 The peppermint brownies are a great “healthy” sweet treat to whip up for your family this holiday season. See below for ingredients and steps to make them. Enjoy!


{makes 16}

3/4 cup almond flour

1/2 cup cacao powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

3 eggs

1/2 cup almond butter

1/3 cup honey

3 tablespoons ghee

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup crushed peppermint

1/2 cup chocolate chips


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mix together almond flour, cacao powder, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl.

3. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs, vanilla and honey.

4. Melt ghee and mix into wet ingredient bowl.

5. Combine wet and dry ingredients with a spatula.

6. Add almond butter into mixture and stir.

7. Stir in chocolate chips and half of the crushed peppermint.

8. Pour batter into a 9×9″ greased baking pan. Pat down evenly. Sprinkle the remaining peppermint on top.

9. Bake for 17-22 minutes. Note: the less you cook, the more gooey the brownies will be.

10. Let cool and enjoy! This recipe makes 16 brownies.

*If you have some crushed peppermint left, sprinkle on top when you pull it out of the oven. It’s more for looks and a bit of crunch 😉
