Spring is upon us and easter is right around the corner! Not only is it time to celebrate our savior but also to indulge in some yummy easter treats am I right!?
My famous, flourless almond butter brownies are my favorite thing to make for any occasion.
You can add to them or keep them simple and make some basic brownies or add in your favorite candies. For Halloween I make them pumpkin, easter they have yummy chocolate eggs and Christmas I add in some candy cane. So versatile!
These are completely gluten free and contain no flour. They are not vegan BUT they can be made vegan easily by swapping out the eggs for 1/2 cup of applesauce. They are so fudgy and delicious I know they'll become your new favorite dessert :)
The best part about these is they are full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals! We love a dessert that also nourishes us! How you ask? Because I made these with the fabulous @shopkarenberrios cacao powder that is the highest quality on the market! Highly recommend trying it out. There is a big difference between cocoa powder and cacao powder. Cocoa has usually been stripped of all of its benefits. Stick with cacao when you can!
2 eggs (can sub eggs for 1/2 cup applesauce to make vegan)

1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
1/3 cup cacao powder (@shopkarenberrios)
