I’m yet to meet a chocolate dessert I didn’t like.  At least the homemade variety.  I’m hit and miss with adding peppermint to my chocolate but using Doterra’s peppermint essential oil is definitely a win.  Mainly because it’s real peppermint and just the right amount.

I whipped up these little guys up for our Maple Grove Fall workshop in October 2019.  The two bite chocolate brownies were inspired by the recipe I found at but I changed a few ingredients based on what I already had.  I also baked them in a mini cupcake pan so they were ready to serve for the workshop.

I’m all about easy and simple.


1/2 cup spelt flour – this is what I used.  I’m sure you could use your all purpose baking flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup real maple syrup
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt – I’m sure you could use any salt of your choice
3-4 drops of Doterra peppermint essential oil.  Please don’t use another brand as it most essential oils brands aren’t for internal use (food grade).

I topped each little two bite brownie with a chocolate chunk for extra enjoyment.  I like to use the Enjoy Life brand – they are an allergy-free brand chocolate that can be found in the health food section of the grocery store.  If this isn’t an issue for you, you can use whatever you desire.


  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease pan with coconut oil.
    2.  In a large mixing bowl, cream maple syrup and melted coconut oil.  You can use an electric beater if desired.
    3.  Add eggs, vanilla, and 3 drops Doterra peppermint essential oil – If peppermint flavored brownies are desired – a little bit goes a long way.  Beat until fully blended.
    4. Stir in flour, cocoa powder, and pink Himalayan salt. Mix with a spoon until fully combined.
    5.  Spoon out into baking ban and press in a chocolate chunk for each. Place into oven and bake for 16-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
    6.  Remove from oven and allow to cool before removing from pan and serving.

I forgot to take a picture of them before they were eaten so I don’t have one to include in this post!
