These fudgy peppermint brownies may look and taste like the brownies you love, but they’re free of the things that your waistline doesn’t. We’ve taken out the flour, butter, and refined sugar and replaced them with wholesome ingredients such as coconut oil, honey, Peppermint Vitality™, and black beans. Yes—we said black beans! They may seem like a strange addition to a sweet recipe, but black beans provide a soft, gooey, fudgy texture and have almost no taste—allowing the bold flavors of the cocoa powder and Peppermint Vitality to shine through. But don’t take our word for it, give this flourless peppermint brownie recipe a try! Your taste buds and waistline will thank you.
