Gluten-Free Chocolate Mint Squares

Who doesn’t love the mint and chocolate combo? Well, I’m sure there are some people out there, but if you’re reading this I’m pretty certain it’s not you. If you’re a fan of mint chocolate (which we’ve now concluded you are 😉 make sure to check out my Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Ice Cream recipe too! It’s perfect for summer and loaded with probiotics and other healthy ingredients. Oh, and we can’t forget my Healthy Thin Mint recipe too! Both are crowd-pleasers.

Almost all the recipes I create for you here in the #shhkitchen are gluten-free! What I love about these fudgy mint chocolate bars in particular though is that the flour you use is very versatile! You can use homemade oat flour (here’s my step by step guide of how to make oat flour at home), or you can use almond or cashew flour! If you choose cashew or almond flour then these bars will be completely paleo! Whooohooo! If you’re wondering what the differences are between all these healthy flours, be sure to check out my blog post on the Top 6 Healthy Flours + How To Use Them.

Perfect Vegan Mint Recipe

If you’re looking for the perfect mint chocolate recipe that’s also vegan and easy to make, you’ve come to the right place. We use 2 flax eggs in this recipe to make the mint chocolate bars hold together. Flax also is high in fiber and low in calories, so bonus points! I love using flax eggs for so many different yummy recipes like my Healthy Gender Reveal Cake Pops, Protein Cookie Dough Hearts, No Bake Peanut Butter Pumpkin Bars, and more!

Fudgy Mint Chocolate Bars (No-Bake + Gluten-Free)

Fudgy Mint Chocolate Bars - No Bake!

These Healthy Fudgy Mint Chocolate Bars are no-bake are probably the best clean eating treat or snack ever! You only need 8 ingredients. They’re super easy to make and taste so decadent, you would never know they’re made without refined sugar or flour. Gluten-free, paleo, and vegan-friendly!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Freeze Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes

Ingredients

Chocolate Topping:

Instructions

1. Line a 1.5-quart dish with parchment paper (See Note 1).

2. In a medium bowl combine ground flax and water and let sit until thickened (2-5 minutes). Then, stir in nut butter, mint extract, and maple syrup. 

3. Mix in oat flour, cacao powder, and optional chocolate chips until dough forms.

4. Press chocolate dough into parchment-lined dish, making an even layer. Place in freezer to set while you melt the chocolate.

5. Melt chocolate and coconut oil in microwave or using a double boiler. If microwaving, melt in 20-second intervals, stirring in between. Add in some peppermint extract if desired.

6. Get mint bars out of freezer, pour melted chocolate on top, and smooth until covered evenly. Optional: top with flaky sea salt. Place mint chocolate bars back in freezer to set for at least 30 minutes.

8. Once the chocolate layer has set, pull bars from freezer, cut, and enjoy!

9. Store mint chocolate bars in the fridge for up to a month or in the freezer for up to 3 months. (I eat these bars straight from the freezer!)

Notes

  1. Since we aren’t baking these bars, you can use whatever dish you have on hand. My 1.5 quart pan made 18 mint chocolate squares.
  2. Grinding flax seeds: You can grind whole flax seeds in a coffee grinder, food processor, or blender.
