Mint Chocolate Oaty Brownies

mint choc browniesIf you’re looking for a healthier way to indulge in brownies, you may have already made one of these from the blog: vegan, protein packed brownies /  cacao + carob brownies /  banana brownies /  3 minute grain-free brownie bowl / low sugar high protein black bean brownies / beetroot brownie / no-bake plant protein power brownies. 

Adding to the array of healthy and delicious chocolatey goodness, is today’s mint-chocolate version. Full of fibre, antioxidants and vegan-friendly, these are easy to make and a little to easy to eat…. If you cut them into small bite-size pieces, it’ll make around 30 squares, so you could whip them up for a get-together or for the whole family to dive into throughout the week.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cups good quality oats
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour or ground almonds
  • 1 handful dates, soaked in warm water for 30 minutes beforehand
  • 3 tbsp agave, coconut nectar, honey or 3 tsp stevia
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • a few squares of good quality dark chocolate
  • splash of milk of your choice

METHOD

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C
  2. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until a thick dough-like consistency is formed. Try adding the dates bit-by-bit so they spread evenly through the mixture.
  3. Grease a baking dish with a small amount of coconut oil
  4. Remove the mixture and press into the baking dish
  5. Bake for roughly 15-20 minutes
  6. Remove from the oven and grate the chocolate over the top – doing it at this point means it’ll melt into the brownie.
  7. Leave it to cool for a few minutes
  8. Remove carefully from the dish and leave to cool fully on a wire rack
  9. Slice into squares and store in the fridge for up to a week

Enjoy!
