Blissfuly Brilliant Brownies

  • Prep in 8 minutes
  • Cook in 25 minutes

If I was to class myself as anything (not that I really buy into labels that much) I think I’d have to go for ‘consciously creative’ when it comes to my cooking style.

When developing a new recipe I look to ingredients that will nourish the body, carefully considering how I piece them together for their health benefits but NEVER at the expense of the final taste because what’s the point!

And these brownies are a perfect example of how, if we step (or leap!) outside the box we can absolutely delight in all things decadent & delicious but with no concern that we are dabbling in things that perhaps aren’t so brilliant from a nutritional perspective.

So without further ado I challenge you to look at this divinely fudge morsel & guess what the primary ingredient is….if you get it I will personally make you a batch & deliver it to your door!
