Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 9-12 brownies
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup Swerve granulated sugar (can substitute regular sugar)
  • ½ cup flax meal
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup plantbased milk
  • ¼ cup cacao powder
  • ¾ cup brown rice flour
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • optional: EnjoyLofe chocolate chips sprinkled on top of the brownies
  • optional: 5-10 drops doTERRA Copaiba essential oil in the batter
  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F, and prepare and 8"x8" baking dish by lining with parchment or greasing with coconut oil. I used a square glass casserole dish.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, sugar, vanilla, salt, cacao, flax meal, milk, and optional doTERRA Copaiba essential oil.
  3. Next, using a rubber spatula, stir in the brown rice flour and baking soda until well combined.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish, smooth the top, sprinkle with chocolate chips,and place in the oven to bake for 40-45 minutes. If you are using a metal baking dish, decrease the baking time to 30-35 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and cool before slicing.
  6. Store leftovers in a breadbox or an airtight container for 3-4 days.
The serving sizes are basic estimates based upon the servings my husband and I use to reach fullness and satiety when eating this recipe. Please remember to honor your hunger and fullness by eating more when you are hungry and stopping when you are satisfied.
Please, only use doTERRA essential oils internally because they are the only essential oil company with Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) quality!
