Friends, there’s been something on my mind lately. 

carrot

I think I want to marry a carrot. 

Okay, now while I let you ponder on the possibility of actually marrying a vegetable, let’s talk mint VS peppermint.

I was skyping with Niki the other day and amidst her current life dramas (she ripped her skirt, she accidentally wore flip flops to work instead of heels and how some guy told her she looked like Kim Kardashian’s ugly sister), I (stupidly) asked her if ‘peppermint brownie’ sounded better than ‘mint brownie’. 

She said neither. 

She would just brush her teeth before eating a normal brownie if she wanted some mint flavor. 

You guys, this girl is something.

Anyway, we went into the debate of mint VS peppermint, so much that we were seeing if saying it in an English accent made much of a difference. 

It didn’t. 

Anyway, what resulted was an on skype taste test of 3 flavors of chewing gum (sweet mint, mint and peppermint) for us to reach a solid conclusion- The sweet mint was barely minty but tasted the best; The peppermint was suitable for those who’d just eaten a cake made out of garlic. The classic ‘mint’ one was juuuuuuust right and would be the best marriage to something with chocolate. 

So there. Mint Chocolate Brownie it is!

In full disclosure,  my sister’s commentary was not taken into consideration. She said that Starburst’s newest chewing gum range was delicious. 

Okay then. 

Before we get into today’s recipe, let’s see what the eats have been lately- A full day of eats from the other day!

 

Breakfast- Unpictured- I’ve been noshing on bagels like a BOSS. Snack- Today’s pretty amazing recipe- Confession- I ate two- One mid-shoot and one after- for quality control. Lunch- I was going out to dinner to this Japanese restaurant which had good quality, cheap seafood. I had a light lunch of a few pieces of this carrot breakfast cake. Dinner- So, I went to town- Mixed sizzling seafood, Teriyaki salmon and steamed rice. 

Now onto today’s recipe- This healthy 1-minute mint chocolate brownie! 

I’m sticking closely with my intentions of sharing reader’s request recipes! Even though I’ve shared several mint recipes on here before (no bake peppermint mocha bites, chewy mint chocolate chip protein bars and no bake thin mint cookies), none of them involve being baked! When reader Ellen requested a mint infused cake, I knew this healthy chocolate brownie with a hint of mint ticked the bill!

This healthy one minute chocolate brownie with a hint of mint is so moist, fudgy and packed with chocolate goodness, you’d think it was some calorie bomb, but it’s anything but- It’s ridiculously healthy! It has no butter, oil, white flour or sugar but I promise you can’t tell! It literally takes one minute to whip up in the microwave or between 12-15 minutes if you use an oven/toaster oven.Not a fan of mint? This can totally be made without- Simply leave out the mint extract and be left with an uber chocolatey brownie! For those of varying diets, it’s also naturally gluten free, paleo, sugar free and vegan! 

HACK! If you go the flax egg route VS the standard egg, you’ll be able to cut the cooking time even more and be left with an ultra gooey center- Similar to a deep dish brownie cake! This is the same for those opting for the oven option!

Make this delicious one minute healthy chocolate brownie with a hint of mint and please- Don’t take a leaf out of Niki’s book.

If you want a hint of mint, add the extract- Don’t brush your teeth prior.

Ingredients
  1. 1 T almond flour
  2. 1 1/2 T coconut flour, sifted
  3. 1 T cocoa powder
  4. 1- T granulated sweetener of choice (I used a monk fruit blend)*
  5. pinch mint extract
  6. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  7. 1 large egg or egg white (sub for 1 flax egg to keep it vegan)
  8. 1/4 cup + dairy free milk of choice**
  9. Sugar free or dairy free chocolate chips (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well.
  2. In a separate small bowl, combine the dairy free milk with the egg (or flax egg) and whisk with the mint extract. Add the mixture to the dry mixture and mix until just combined. If batter is still crumbly, continue adding dairy free milk one tablespoon at a time, until a thick batter is formed.
  3. Grease a microwave or oven safe bowl and generously and pour the batter. Top with optional chocolate chips and microwave for at least 50 seconds, depending on the microwave.
Oven version
  1. Follow directions as above but bake in a preheated toaster oven or oven for 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Notes
  1. * Adjust sweetness to taste. I found one tablespoon sufficient.
  2. ** Depending on the brand of coconut flour, almond flour and cocoa powder you use, you may need more. Adjust accordingly.

  1. Mint chocolate is my fave. As matter of fact brownies are my fave too. I think if it’s peppermint I need to see some candy cane action.
    I think the Simpsons are funny, but King of the Hill is even funnier! Have you seen it?

  2. I would totally marry a carrot. But that would mean I would first have to get a divorce and that would be messy. So instead I am just going to eat the carrot.

  3. I think of peppermint and mint as two different things actually! Peppermint as specific and mint as generic (could be spearmint, etc.). No idea if this is accurate though! I went out to dinner for my birthday with some friends last night, and had an amazing pear and fig crisp with ice cream! That might be the best thing recently.

  4. I always wondered what the deal was between spearmint and peppermint gum. You never see “spearmint” anywhere else. But what the heck is it?

    In terms of chocolate though – peppermint or mint – I’ll take it together. Any time of year. Although the idea of brushing your teeth before eating chocolate is rather clever…

  5. I prefer spearmint, actually, which I don’t think was part of your scientific study. I do think the English accent experiment was necessary, though, otherwise how would you know which one was better? You’ve not only inspired me to make this cake, but you’ve also inspired me to buy every flavor of mint gum to see which one is the best.

  6. Mint is as amazing as it’s confusing – your mint vs. peppermint vs. sweet mint taste test is proof. I’m sure there are at least a few dozen different kinds of mint. Maybe that’s why not every brand of mint chocolate tastes the same? Hm ….
    Anyway, I’m all up for the mint and chocolate combination and in a brownie? That sounds interesting. And delicious. Does that mean I don’t have to brush my teeth anymore after eating 😉 ?

  7. Mint for sure!!! Chocolate and mint are one of the best combinations. I will definitely be giving this mug cake a try! The best thing I’ve eaten lately was probably some banana bread waffles :p which will probably be made again this weekend!!

  8. I’ve been married to sweet potatoes for a LOOOOONG time, but I’ve been guilty of flirting with peanut butter, dark chocolate, and recently, butternut squash! Hahaha! You never fail to make delicious hack desserts, Arman! Keep at it with the creativity!

  9. This brownie looks seriously delish Arman, and I really know what you mean about the mint chocolate naming crisis! Choc mint is just about my favourite flavour combination (hence why I’m such a fan of this minty brownie!) and I actually recently published a recipe for a healthy/vegan/no-bake mint chocolate slice but had the exact same dilemma. Do I call it a choc mint slice, a mint chocolate slice, a peppermint slice, a chocolate peppermint slice, and do I add healthy/raw/vegan/no-bake in there too, or will that make it too long? And what if non-Australian readers don’t know what a slice is, so should I call them bars instead? In the end I decided on healthy chocolate peppermint slice, but I was *this* close to just calling it Glorious Yummy Mint Thing. Bahaha! 😀 Hope you have a great weekend, Arman! 🙂

      1. Thank you for answering my question so quickly! I hope to try this recipe for a treat tonight, nothing is better than chocolate and mint in one treat!
