Mint Oreo Brookies #FantasticalFoodFight

Welcome to another Food Fight! Fantastical Food Fight is a group of food bloggers who will get a theme or ingredient each month and make some sort of variation for it. It could be traditional or nontraditional and can be found in a cookbook, on a blog, or be a blogger's own creation! For more details, check out this page.

This month's Fantastical Food Fight theme is MINT CHOCOLATE. With March almost upon us, I figured mint chocolate would be the perfect theme for the month where St. Patrick's Day is celebrated and green food rules! I personally have not had a lot of mint chocolate in a while because I was told not to eat peppermint or chocolate when I had my second SVT episode (I blogged about my journey on my personal blog, if you're interested, but basically it's an arrhythmia where your heart beats super fast. My record is slightly over 250 bpm). However, it's been almost a year since my surgery to correct it, so I am pretty sure I'm allowed to eat whatever now. No restrictions on life. These brookies were the perfect way to enjoy one of my favorite flavor combinations again.

I have to admit that I am not actually too big a fan of Oreos, but I do like treats with Oreos in them. Cookies and cream is actually probably my favorite ice cream flavor now as an adult and any kind of cookies and cream dessert is going to be a favorite of mine for sure. These brownies are oh so fudgy and the bits of mint Oreos were so so so perfect in them. I am so excited to see what other fantastically delicious mint chocolate recipes are shared today. I'm ready for more treats like this! In moderation, of course :)

The winner of the OVERNIGHT OATS Food Fight is Karen from Karen's Kitchen Stories with her Overnight Slow Cooker Steel Oats. I tried steel oats for the first time a few year ago and loved them, so I definitely saved Karen's recipe because what a better way to make breakfast than in the slow cooker overnight?!
