Double Mint Chocolate Squares 

Print Friendly 

Description:
These are great for Valentines or Christmas. You can leave out the food colouring if you like but they won’t have that visual wow factor. Green for Christmas and red for Valentines Day. I like to keep them in the fridge for a cool mint treat.

Ingredients:
Batter
¾c melted butter 1½c GF Baking Mix
1c sugar 1½tsp xanthan gum
3 eggs 1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp each vanilla/mint extract 8 drops food colouring (opt)
¾c mint chocolate chips

Glaze
?c mint chocolate chips 2 Tbsp butter
?c dark chocolate chips 1 Tbsp corn syrup


Directions:
Line a 9” square pan with parchment paper allowing paper to hang over the edge of the pan.
Place ¾c mint chocolate chips in a medium bowl and melt in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time stirring each time until melted. Set aside.
Place melted butter in bowl of mixer with sugar, eggs and extracts. Beat well. Add flour, xanthan and baking powder and stir to blend. Add 1¼c of batter to the melted mint chocolate and stir to blend. Pour into prepared pan.
Add food colouring (if using) to remaining plain batter. Spoon evenly over chocolate batter. Spread evenly and smooth the top.
Bake in a 350° oven for 30 -35 minutes until top is lightly browned. Cool in pan on wire rack.
Glaze
Combine mint and dark chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time stirring in between each until smooth. Pour over cooled brownie and spread evenly. Chill in fridge until chocolate is set. Cut into ¾” squares. Store in a container in the fridge.


Servings: 12


Notes: If you're looking for a green colour for your baking try adding a drop or two of chlorophyll. A healthier option to corn syrup is agave nectar and it has the same consistency.

Iron and Calcium Supplements
Do you take both iron and calcium supplements? If so, it is best to take them at different times. Iron and calcium can interfere with each other's absorption. For more information, talk to your local health store staff, naturopath, or doctor. Maria Carr

7 Ways to Keep Calm During the Hectic Holiday Season
Here we go: we’re at the top of the roller coaster about to plummet straight into the hustle and bustle of holiday season! Some years it feels like Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s aren’t so much festive celebrations as anxiety-inducing events I have to white-knuckle my way through. So how did the season of gratitude and love become rife with stress and panic? For me, social pressure and my own unnecessarily high standards resulted in way too much...

Recipe
Blueberry and Almond Cake. No Sugar. No Butter. No Flour.
Category: Desserts
Description: This blueberry and almond cake has no sugar, flour or butter, but it still tastes great! Make it at the weekend and serve with berries and Greek yogurt.

Health Benefits of Almonds are a great source of vitamin E, with 25g providing 70 percent of the recommended daily allowance. They contain more calcium than any other nut which makes them great for vegetarians who do not eat any dairy products.

Health Benefits of Almonds are that they are high in antioxidants and their potential benefits for the nervous system and for brain health, there is exciting new evidence that blueberries can improve memory. In a study involving older adults (with an average age of 76 years), 12 weeks of daily blueberry consumption was enough to improve scores on two different tests of cognitive function including memory. While participants in the study consumed blueberries in the form of juice, three-quarters of a pound of blueberries were used to make each cup of juice. As participants consumed between 2 to 2-1/2 cups each day, the participants actually received a very plentiful amount of berries. The authors of this study were encouraged by the results and suggested that blueberries might turn out to be beneficial not only for improvement of memory, but for slowing down or postponing the onset of other cognitive problems frequently associated with aging.
New studies make it clear that we can freeze blueberries without doing damage to their delicate anthocyanin antioxidants.
