Nourished Brownies

Listen, friends.  This recipe right here?  Write it down.  Take a picture.  File it away.  Send it to a friend.  I don’t care what you do but just don’t forget about it.  It’s one of my favorite “back pocket” treats.  Yes, its just a brownie.  Thats rich.  And gooey.  And indulgent.  With no refined sugar.  Or flour.  I know!  And the ease?  I literally let Georgia, my almost three year old, make them herself.  Start to finish.  The mess she makes takes longer to clean up than getting them in the oven.  Your new company-stopping-over-at-the-last-minute staple.  Just make sure you remember what you did with the recipe…they’re going to ask you to share it with them.

    1. Sweet Cindy…if you only knew how many recipes I’ve “filed away” that I just can’t seem to locate…it’s not pretty! Hope you are well and enjoying this beautiful season…so great to hear from you!

  1. Okay, so it took me almost 5 months…but I finally made these! And I LOVE them. SO much. The boys in the house are not into the dark chocolate, so, more for me! Maybe I will make them with milk chocolate someday for them?
    Thanks for sharing…it’s a keeper.
