Ultimate indulgence raw chocolate brownies

May 24, 2017 | Sweet Things | 0 comments


These delicious raw chocolate brownies are the ultimate sin free indulgence. The mixture of nuts and dates in the brownie makes for a nutrient dense high protein treat. The avocado in the frosting provides a good hit of healthy essential fats and the raw cacao and maple syrup, whilst super-foods in their own rights make this recipe feel like it’s naughty but without the guilt.

This is my go-to recipe when I want to wow potential clients at an event but actually it’s super easy to make and even with the help of my 3 year old it take less than 20 minutes.
