Andies Candies better watch out with these Mint Chocolate Brownies (gluten free Vegan) that are also dye free and dairy free. These minty fudgy egg free brownies are the perfect mix of chocolate and mint.
Hiiii! Remember me? Yeah. I know it’s been foreverr… Things around here have kept me busy (and with no signs of letting up). It’s always a jammed packed time of year since October was my birthday month, e.g. my continuing education credits were DUE.
And it’s not like my credits snuck up on me. No. Not at all. In fact, I had two full years to complete them. OR two full years of denial. Same thing. Luckily this time around I vowed to get an early start. Really. I actually started them this Spring, leaving a full 5 months to find more credits and complete them.
5 months is tons of time. Right? Riiight.
But then I decided to run that half marathon… and actually semi-train for it this time.
Annd then, school started for my son…
Oooh! And my oldest friend from grade school got married in St. Louis. All the planning and food prep the week before my trip… But talk about an epic “un-leashed” fun filled event! *sigh* I really need more of those days. It was almost like being single again. That’s all I’m saying about the wedding for now. That deserves an entire post with all the fun details of indulgence. Speaking of. These gluten free mint brownies are an indulgence we can all enjoy. A little indulgence goes such a looong way.
Mint. Chocolate. Brownies. Perfect in my opinion. Chocolate anything is always welcome in our house, but the addition of mint?! SO good. Bring out your fat pants cause these mint chocolate brownies (gluten free Vegan) need to happen to you. They were only matter of time for us. My boys love mint. They ask for a mint shake at least once a week and could eat mint chocolate chip ice cream until they explode. Don’t worry, I never let it get to that point, it’d be too messy. #truth
So I guess the whole point of this post was to explain some of the reasons I wasn’t around AND why you really need some mint chocolate brownies (gluten free vegan) in your kitchen. 😀
