Oh have I got a treat for you today!
I’ve held on to this recipe for months and am wondering why the heck I waited this long to make it. I guess there just isn’t enough time in the day to try each and every single recipe I have pinned, tweeted and Facebooked.
But there will always be enough time for brownies, always. Even if they are months in the making.
This recipe really appealed to me because it’s gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, nut-free, sugar-free, potato-free, yeast-free, grain-free… and should hopefully be consumable by anyone with a food allergy. Heck, if you’re sensitive to chocolate you could sub out the cacao powder for carob and still enjoy them!
I often get asked by you guys, ‘how do I communicate my allergies and sensitivities to friends and family to avoid the awkwardness that surrounds social gatherings?’ My best answer is… send them a bunch of recipes! It’s usually far easier than trying to describe your allergies or write down a list of all the foods you can or cannot have.
This is one of those perfect recipes you can pass on to a friend, prepare for a group with multiple food allergies, and let that awkwardness just melt away… with fudgey goodness!
note: if vegan, do not sweeten with honey. If grain-free, do not sweeten with brown rice syrup.
note: I tried a batch without the stevia and they weren’t sweet enough. If you don’t want to use stevia, sub the plain roasted sunflower seed butter with the sweetened version and you should be good!
They are melt-in-your-mouth fantasticness. At least that’s how Kevin described it.
… and Lexy would have too if she had, had the guts to grab the brownie out of Kevin’s hand!
PS: these brownies are really, really not safe for puppies! Not only is chocolate toxic to them, but xylitol is too. Unfortunately they’ll have to sit this treat out, but you could always make them a batch of puppy treats!
