A Pre- Christmas Treat!

Eating well can be difficult this time of year, and avoiding allergen-infested treats and eats can be even harder! So, I've come up with a delicious, gluten and dairy free alternative for when you need a bit of sweet.

Gluten & Dairy Free Peppermint Brownie
1/2 cup peppermint dust (take a candy cane and grate it)
1/2 cup sweet rice flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/8 cup gluten free baking powder
1/8 cup potato starch
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup water
2 eggs
2 tbsp. honey

Heat oven to 350F. In medium-sized bowl, mix together dry ingredients, saving some of the peppermint dust. 
Stir in oil, water, eggs and honey until a nice paste forms. Pour mixture into well-greased or cooking sprayed cake pan. 
Put into oven and bake for 15 minutes. May need more time depending on oven. You can always use the toothpick trick.
Once brownies are done, cut into sections and sprinkle remaining peppermint dust on top.
Serve warm! Enjoy!
