I’ve been dabbling a lot in eating raw, vegan foods lately. I know the minute I say that, many will shutter at the thought. But honestly, many dishes, desserts and snacks are so awesome and taste so good! Trust me… don’t cringe. It’s fine every once in a while to eat something totally raw and vegan. These fun “brownies” have no oils or refined sugars in them and for those of you that have a gluten allergy – these have no flour in them as well.
Mint – people either love it or hate it. You can control the amount of mint you add to them so if you have total mint lovers (like I do) you can be a bit heavy-handed with the extract. If you don’t care for it – omit it! These are the perfect treat running out the door in the morning, post workout snack or after-dinner dessert when you crave something chocolately and sweet without blowing all of your workout efforts. You can also use a smaller pan if you want your brownies thicker too.
These can be made in absolutely no time and keep in the fridge for about a week – but they won’t last that long!
