Raven's Peppermint Brownies (Vegan / Gluten-Free)

These brownies are super simple, and you can substitute YL Lavender Essential Oil, or YL Orange Essential Oil instead of the YL Peppermint Essential Oil for a yummy variation of this gooey chocolate treat.  This version is also Vegan, Gluten-Free and Low-Fat . . . . so yay for that!  

Ready to Hit the Oven!  

What You Need:

1 box Better Batter Gluten-Free Fudge Brownie Mix
1 can Northern Beans
3/4 cup water
3-4 drops YL Peppermint Essential Oil
3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips (optional)

What You Do:

Preheat oven to 350F for metal pans / 325F for glass, dark, or non-stick coated pans.  Lightly grease 8 x 8 pan so brownies won't stick!

In a blender or food processor, blend 1 can Northern (white) Beans (rinsed well) and 3/4 - 1 cup of water until smooth.  Mixture should be not too thick, but not too watery.  Stir together brownie mix with pureed beans until blended.  Do not over stir!  Add 3-4 drops of YL Peppermint Oil, and chocolate chips (if desired) and fold in gently until evenly blended.  Bake in lightly greased 8 x 8 pan for 30 - 45 minutes (baking time varies depending on pan), or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool completely before serving.  Enjoy!  :)

Mmmmmm . . . . Peppermint Brownies!!
