These minty chocolate brownie bites are not only delicious, they are gluten free!  They are practically good for you.  The combination of rich chocolate with the zest of Young Living Peppermint Oil is irresistible.  And the mini muffin size makes them the perfect two-bite treat (unless you have a dozen of them, but who would do that?).

I’ve been eating grain free for several years now and this gluten free chocolate cake recipe has been my go to for some time.  This version is a bit more decadent with the addition of chocolate chips – because double chocolate is better than not double chocolate.  The addition of therapeutic grade Young Living Peppermint essential oil will also satisfy any ‘mint chip’ lovers you may know.
