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.

Wellness Tip
Fiber
There are two main types of fiber, soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber strongly attracts water during digestion. It appears to help lower blood cholesterol. Oat, beans and other legumes, Flax, prunes, apples and pears are rich in soluble fiber. Insoluble fiber mixes less easily with water. It is found in many fruits, vegetables, dried beans, wheat bran, seeds, popcorn, and whole grain products. Insoluble fiber helps keep the bowels regular and may help prevent certain types of cancers. Both types, when taken with plenty of water, aid in weight control and the regulation of blood pressure, blood sugar, and blood cholesterol.

Stuffed Mushroom Caps with Couscous
Category: Side Dishes
Description: Couscous is a mildly nutty-tasting grain that comes from North Africa. It makes a great stuffing, especially for a small cavity like a mushroom, because it's so moist. When the stuffed mushrooms are baked, the full flavor of the couscous and the mushrooms really come through. These will go fast!

Couscous is among the healthiest grain-based products. It has a glycemic load per gram 25% below that of pasta. It has a superior vitamin profile to pasta, containing twice as much riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, and folate, and containing four times as much thiamin and pantothenic acid. In terms of protein, couscous has 3.6g for every 100 calories, equivalent to pasta, and well above the 2.6g for every 100 calories of white rice. Furthermore, couscous contains a 1% fat-to-calorie ratio, compared to 3% for white rice, 5% for pasta, and 11.3% for rice pilaf.
In general, mushrooms are low in energy, virtually free of fat, a valuable source of fibre and are cholesterol and carbohydrate-free. Emerging research indicates that certain mushroom extracts, such as beta-glucans, may have a positive effect on the immune system. Medicinal properties have been attributed to mushrooms for thousands of year. Benefit to the immune system may be one of them.
