GF Peppermint EO Brownies

As much as I love brownies, I REALLY love these Gluten Free Peppermint Essential Oil Brownies.

Yep, you read that right. There is an essential oil in this recipe.

I had never used them in my baking or cooking until these brownies last Christmas.

Thanks to my friend, Jacey, I now know how delicious oils can be in food.

So skip the extracts and use peppermint, nutmeg, clove, and any other festive essential oils in your recipes this season.

This particular recipe is perfect for last minute holiday get togethers, school programs, or those famous Christmas goodie trays.

You can also bake the peppermint brownies ahead of time and freeze to use later.

By using a boxed brownie mix, 3 drops of peppermint essential oil, and a crushed candy cane you have the most delicious and festive dessert to share.

I have used both a gluten free brownie mix like this recipe and a regular “gluten filled” mix too.

These brownies have turned out well each time and have the perfect amount of peppermint.

The Krusteaz Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix was straight up ahhhmazing! There are real chocolate chips hidden in the batter and make for the ooey-gooey super chocolately texture we all love in brownies.

Three drops of EO seems to be just the ticket!

Too many drops and you have toothpaste flavored brownies and too little you won’t taste the holiday flair.

To really kick these brownies up another holiday notch, cut them into isosceles shaped triangles, stick a small piece of candy cane in the short end of the triangle and frost the Christmas tree brownies with green frosting.

Then sprinkle the peppermint brownies with the crushed candy canes! So cute!

I have seen this idea for years now and have yet to do it, but who knows maybe this will be the year.
