Peppermint Patty Snack Cake

Peppermint Patty Snack Cakes are the perfect thing to make when you want  a snack that tastes rich and chocolately but is still relatively guilt free. These amazing low-fat chocolate treats taste deceptively decadent but rather than adding unhealthy stuff like butter  or sugar, the cakes get their tasty  “peppermint patty-ness” from ingredients like cocoa powder, Truvia, pumpkin puree, and peppermint extract. I’m sure it sounds a little strange but once you mix in a few essentials like oats, baking soda, and eggs,  the ingredients come together to form a delectable, chocolate-peppermint batter. Once the easy batter is stirred together, simply divide it between two mini pie tins and a mere half hour later, you’re ready to indulge your chocolate cravings with a delightful Peppermint Patty Snack Cake!

5. Bake cakes for 28-30 minutes, or cakes feel firm to the touch in the center and edges start to pull away from sides of pan.

6. Let cakes cool for 2-3 minutes, then run a thin rubber spatula or knife around the edges of each cake to separate it from pan. Invert cakes onto serving plate and enjoy!
