Gluten Free Brownies
This recipe is just yum! It may not be as super nourishing but its ok to indulge sometimes and it still has some great health benefits too.
It has a slightly different consistency to other brownies due to the almond flour and desiccated coconut, but it is still sticky, chocolatey and yum.
Raw cocoa is full of polyphenols which act as very strong antioxidants in the body. The raw honey has both anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial power.
