Chocolate Mint Brownies (vegan & gluten-free)

Your favorite healthy brownie recipes for the better! Chocolate Mint Chocolatey is solid, chocolate- & full of fresh mint flavor. Vegan & gluten-free!



To be honest, I've never been a mint + chocolate fanatic. Thin Mints are not mine (Trefoils all the way). A chocolate bar of mint protein has never been in my kitchen. Believe me, I like the two separately ... but together? Not too much.

Wait, just kidding. No longer. This chocolate mint chocolatey made me believe in all things mint + chocolate, and now I will never return.

I'm always very innocent in terms of taste. I admit, yes, plain vanilla is my favorite ice cream flavor. I know, I'm weird. I hated tomato sauce until I was a teenager; I used to only eat pasta with butter. I really don't like sauces or sauces that grow except soy sauce. Because who doesn't like the item?

P.S. Does anyone remember that green soy sauce? I don't even want to know what it is.

I like ordinary food and how it should be. I don't want cayenne pepper in my chocolate; no thanks, I just want it plain and chocolate-y. So, when it comes to mint + chocolate combos, I just want the chocolate myself. How do other people feel about combos?

I don't know what this newfound love means for mint + chocolate for my recipe creation (so many ideas!), but it certainly means I will make these brownies repeat in the future. Aka St. Weekend Weekend Patrick and every other weekend after that. IMPRESSED.

This super easy recipe is based on my Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Brownies recipe based on the very popular Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Bars recipe. So, consider this chocolate mint brownie as a new addition to healthy fam bars/brownies.

  • 3/4 cup pitted date
  • 3/4 cup almond butter (or peanut butter / selected seeds)
