The weather the past two days hasn’t been the nicest so we’ve been staying indoors. Poor Jax. Lucky us! As we get to play in the kitchen more!

Luckily brownies fix everything, right?

Especially warm, soft chewy mint brownies with ice cream!!!


Secretly healthy mini skillet mint brownie for two.

Or for one…if you aren’t willing to share!

This skillet brownie topped with our creamy mint ice cream was the bomb! Seriously addicting… in a good way. We hope you enjoy! Wait. We know you will love this!

How to make mini grain-free brownie ice cream sundae recipe.


It’s funny we had this cute little mini cast iron skillet sitting around and never really used it before. Big mistake.

Until now.

We discovered how to make the easiest brownie recipe in a flash.

This brownie is amazing eaten straight out of the skillet with a spoon, topped with melting ice cream, still warm from the oven! Yes please!

When the brownie craving hits you need a good fudgy brownie.


This recipe will curb your craving!


Rich, fudgy warm chocolate brownie topped with creamy mint ice cream.

You can top your brownie with your choice of ice cream. We are die hard mint ice cream fans so of course we went with mint ice cream.
Eating our chocolate chips or raw cacao nibs plain out of the bag doesn’t always cut it. Sometimes we want something a little more.  Do you ever get that feeling that you want a sweet treat but are too tired to really ‘make’ something. You’re not alone.

Even though we love making recipes sometimes it is nice to have something that is super simple to make that only takes a few minutes but yet looks like it took all day to make.


Here is your recipe for your super simple 6 ingredient skillet brownie for one or two if your nice 😉

Go ahead and make a few of these brownies so you always have a quick and healthy treat waiting for you in the freezer.

I made this delicious brownie for myself tonight. Unfortunately, my peppermint extract bottle was empty! How did that happen?! So I used vanilla instead and chocolate protein powder. It was so fudgy and I topped it with a little whip cream.
Thanks for the treat!

thanks sweetie!

Cara's Healthy Cravings February 12, 2015 - 2:30 pm

Mmmmm! This is so perfect.
For the amount of batter this makes, do you think it would portion off into two ramekins? I was thinking to bake it that way instead of using a small cast iron (which I wish I had, just for the cuteness of it!) because that what I have on hand.

Thanks! 🙂

purelytwins February 12, 2015 - 4:22 pm

Yes you can make two ramekins with the batter of one cake. xo

not really sure but this is an estimate – about 400cals, 6-8g protein, about 12g fat and 17g carbs give or take. does not include a scoop of ice cream.

4 tablespoons of my cacao is 2 Oz , should I go for 4tbsp or 1 oz ?
2 tbsp protein also weighs 1 oz and not 1/2 oz as written ?? What should i go for?

purelytwins January 15, 2017 - 11:18 am

We suggest using 1oz for the cacao, and for our protein powder it is 1/2 oz so we suggest following the weight.
