Peppermint & Chocolate during the Holidays is like Peanut Butter & Jelly on a normal day!

You just can’t beat it!!

I used my Chocolate Brownie recipe and just jazzed these up with some crushed, sugar free peppermint candies!

Candy canes would work too!

Or some crushed Andes Mints!!!

This is one of those “crazy” recipes where I use beans and protein powder! 

That’s right! Healthy Peppermint Brownies!

If you never tried baking with beans before, don’t be scared…they make baked goods so soft, moist, and fudgy!

Not to mention the added protein and fiber.
