Day 3 of #Choctoberfest and I am so excited to bring you my first sponsored post EVER!! First I would like to start by thankingĀ Barlean’sĀ for being a wonderful sponsor of #choctoberfest. In exchange for a recipe that sent me a goodie bag of their Greens chocolate silk and Swirl chocolate mint flax seed oil. I must say that the opinions in this post are all my own and of course my 2 favorite taste testers andĀ Barlean’sĀ product received a big thumbs up. At first I was a little worried about using theĀ Barlean’sĀ chocolate silk greens in my mixture but a little taste of the batter made my worry go right out the window. My batter was just as good, no it was better!! By adding theĀ Barlean’s chocolate mint swirl flax seed oil it sent my recipe straight to chocolate mint cloud 9. When I first placed the mint chip brownie bites in front of my 2 favorite taste testers I felt a little sneaky but when they let me know that they were the best mint chip brownie bites they had ever had that feeling past. LOL!! It wasn’t until their 3rd and 4th brownie bite that I let them in on the secret and well I guess they didn’t care and thought they were as great as I did because they each reached for 2 more.

Okay, so I will stop rambling now and get to the recipe but, before you go any further you are going to want to follow me over to Barlean’s and place an order. I am headed over to try out a few more of their other products since this mom is not worried about sneaking in some good stuff with the sweet stuff now that I have foundĀ Barlean’s!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray one mini muffin tin with nonstick spray.
