Chocolate brownies is the base of this recipe, so allow me to share the ingredients needed to make it.

Mint And Chocolate Flavor Combination
Fun Fact: Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but it is said that women enjoy the mint chocolate combination more than men.
I don’t know if this is totally accurate, but mint does have a “clean”, refreshing flavor…one that reminds us of a clean mouth since we mostly use mint-flavored toothpaste or mouthwash.
Take it for what it’s worth. I know a lot of men who love mint chocolate flavors as well!

How Can Brownie Dessert Be Low Carb?
One of the dry ingredients in this brownie recipe is called baking blend.
If you follow Trim Healthy Mama you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
However, if you are new to my blog or know nothing of Trim Healthy Mama, allow me to explain.
THM baking blend is a blend of low carb flours that help to keep your desserts and baked goods lower in carbs, yet still delicious.
Baking Blend Substitute
If you do not have THM Baking Blend on hand, you can easily make a substitute using equal amounts of almond flour, coconut flour and ground flaxseed.
For example, if a recipe calls for 1 cup of THM Baking Blend, you would substitute that with 1/3 cup almond flour, 1/3 cup coconut flour and 1/3 cup ground flaxseed.
If you read the ingredient list for the mint filling above, you may be wondering what spinach puree is and how to make it.
It’s a “secret ingredient” in the mint chocolate chip cream pie recipe. It is a natural green food coloring and it’s super easy to make…so be sure to check out that blog post to read about how to make spinach puree.
Green food coloring is the easiest way to color the creamy filling. Watkins makes food coloring without artificial dyes, so there’s that option as well.
Best Way To Store Mint Chocolate Brownies
Storing brownies in an airtight container on the counter is perfectly fine, but since this recipe has a cream cheese layer, storing your container in the refrigerator is best!
The cream cheese filling will stay firm and last a little longer in the fridge.
