Peppermint Black Bean Brownies

I love when classic recipes are flipped upside down by making them with some interesting substitute; thus enter Peppermint Black Bean Brownies - made with (you guessed it) black beans instead of flour, and honey instead of sugar!

Ummm... healthier brownies? Yes, please!

Also, I was recently introduced to the magical world of doTERRA essential oils, and their recipe calls for 2-4 drops of Peppermint oil - which is perfect because I happen to have that on hand (I typically use Peppermint oil in my diffuser, as well as topically on my temples to soothe a headache - if you haven't experienced the wonder of doTERRA and you're interested to learn more, let me know and I can totally hook you up). 

So here we are, with a kickass brownie recipe that is less than 10 ingredients total! 

You're already drooling, right?

Me too - let's dive in!
