Peppermint Brownie Bites

Yield – 24 bite-sized brownies

Preparation Time – 15 minutes

Cooking Time – 11 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 drops peppermint essential oil

Directions

  • Set your eggs in a cup of warm (not hot) water to help them come up to room temperature.  This will allow them to easily mix into the batter without solidifying the coconut oil.
  • Heat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Prepare your mini muffin pan by spraying with cooking spray or use a silicone non-stick pan.
  • In a medium bowl, combine butter, coconut oil, cocoa powder, sugar, and vanilla.  Stir well to thoroughly combine.
  • Remove eggs from the water and break into the bowl.  Stir in eggs and beat about 30 seconds to get them well integrated.
  • Stir in flour and mix just until combined.  Add peppermint essential oil and stir.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared baking cups.  Be sure if you’re using silicone that you place a baking sheet underneath it to keep it steady when you’re moving it in and out of the oven.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 8 – 11 minutes or until toothpick test shows a few moist crumbs.  Do not overbake.
  • Remove from pans and allow to cool before enjoying with a bowl of ice cream or by themselves!
