Whole Wheat Thin Mint Brownie Bites

30 Mar

Girl Scout cookie season hit you hard? Is your freezer overflowing with Thin Mints and Lemonades? (because we all know they freeze well). But you can’t stand to eat another addictive morsel? Well do I have a recipe for you!

Transform those basic Thin Mints into delectable brownie bites to share with your family, friends, and co-workers. Plus, they’re [sort of] healthy! Whole wheat flour, coconut oil and apple sauce make these better than traditional brownies. And they’re topped with cookies, so there’s that.

Crispy cookies and perfect brownies

 

Why bake something that’s already baked? Topping these brownie bites with Thin Mints makes for the best texture combination. The brownies are spongy, moist and chocolatey, supporting an extra-crisp cookie. Too fun to pass up!

Whole Wheat Thin Mint Brownie Bites

Makes 24 brownie bites

  • 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 C organic cane sugar
  • 1/2 C sugar-free applesauce
  • 3/4 C whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 24 Thin Mints

Preheat oven to 350. Spray 2 mini cupcake tins with PAM and set aside.

In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate with butter and coconut oil. Whisk in the eggs, sugar and apple sauce. Mix in the whole wheat flour, baking powder and sea salt.

Scoop batter into prepared mini tins, about 3/4 full. These WILL rise! Top each brownie bite with a Thin Mint.

Ready for the oven!

 

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Let cool completely before removing from the tins. Store in an airtight container up to 5 days. (Who are we kidding, these will disappear as quickly as a box of Caramel DeLites!)

    “Healthy” is relative. Any idea how many grams of fiber and fat, and how many calories, one of these has? I’m on Weight Watchers…

      I did say “sort of” healthy! I’m not sure what the breakdown is, but it could easily be loaded into MyFitnessPal.
