These doTERRA peppermint brownies are my new favorite recipe. I am in love with doTERRA’s peppermint essential oil. I didn’t use to like peppermint until I tried doTERRA’s and now I love it, well, at least the essential oil. So I try to use it in my cooking whenever I can.
I especially love to make these brownies, because they are not only melted-in-your-mouth delicious, they are healthier than normal brownies. I love the sweet potato in these doTERRA peppermint brownies because they make them so moist and rich. And, hey, any way to get more veggies in our life is good, right?
I often make these to bring to family or neighborhood parties, because they not only taste good, but people comment on how good the peppermint flavor is and it opens up the door to talk more about doTERRA and how they are the only brand of essential oils I would take internally and how good it tastes. I also love to serve them at doTERRA parties, because it’s a yummy way to get people to experience the oils many different ways.

To cook a sweet potato I place it in a baking dish and bake it at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes. It is important to make sure that the sweet potato is cooked through all the way before putting into the brownies.
You can cut the brownies once they are done in any size you prefer. I cut them into 20-24 pieces so the servings aren’t so large, especially for any children eating them.
I would love to hear if you make these brownies and what you made them for. Please comment below and let me know.
