Healthy Fudgy Sugar Free and Gluten Free Peppermint Brownies

·

The absolute best healthy twist to peppermint brownies! I still cannot believe these have 0 added sugar or are gluten free! Get into the festive spirit as your house fills with the aroma of fresh brownies and peppermint, it’s hard to not eat the entire batch in one sitting!  These brownies are gluten free, keto, and have zero sugar. I know, it sounds like all the good stuff was taken out of brownies right? WRONG. These are absolutely DELICIOUS and have the perfect brownie texture! These DID NOT last long in my house at all!

These brownies are the perfect pick me up during your day and will be right there for you when your cravings hit! Bring this in to your office and impress everyone with your sugar free baking skills, keep them at home for yourself, bring them to a potluck or dinner for dessert. Even bring them to brunch! Who wouldn’t like a healthy and nutrient dense brownie and brunch time? I sure would! These even make a perfect gift for a special occasion.

Ok, tell me, have you found any awesome new music or great podcasts lately? You know I never stop listening to music and don’t mind a podcast once in a while either! I listen to all kinds of music and love a good serial killer podcast, please tell me you also listen to the serial killer podcasts! I actually don’t really know of any other podcasts, so if you have a good suggestion let me know - I love to laugh so keep that in mind! As for music, again, I will listen to pretty much anything depending on my mood.

Ok, so something we can all look forward too - I am going to be going back to all of my ‘old’ recipes and re doing my photos! I have been working very hard on my skills and even got some new props that I am very excited about! I can’t wait to make these brownies again and take some awesome photos for you guys! My boyfriend always gets sad when he really loves one of my recipes because I usually don’t make them again once I am happy with my recipe, I just take some photos and share my recipe with you all and I move on to the next treat that I want to start recipe developing. So he is very excited that I have decided to re do photos! I am excited too - I can’t wait to gobble these brownies up again! I can’t wait to share photos that I am truly proud of with you!

Please show me and tag me in a photo or even a story when you make these! I LOVE seeing when you guys make my recipes - otherwise I think I am just talking to myself over here! Like a little online diary of foods for myself.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup monk fruit
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar free chocolate chips

Topping:

  • 3 tbs heavy cream
  • 1/8 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup powdered monk fruit
  • Optional decoration: crushed candy canes

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8inch pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine all your dry ingredients (expect chocolate chips) and mix until combined.
  3. Combine butter with half the chocolate chips and peppermint extract, melt in a saucepan over medium heat until warm and melted.
  4. In a separate large bowl, add your eggs and using an electric mixer, beat the eggs until slightly frothy.
  5. Slowly add the chocolate and butter mixture to the eggs while mixing.
  6. Add the dry ingredients slowly, and continue mixing until you are left with a thick, glossy brownie batter. Fold in your remaining chocolate chips.
  7. Transfer your brownie batter into an 8x8inch pan covered with parchment paper. Bake the brownies for 18-25 minutes, or until a skewer comes out just about clean from the center.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow the brownies to cool in the pan for 20 minutes, before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Once completely cooled, make your topping by combining all of your topping ingredients (except candy canes) by mixing with an electric whisk until fluffy and smooth.
  10. Spread evenly over cooled brownies and top with crushed candy canes if desired. Enjoy!
