Raw Vegan Fudge Brownies

Posted By LaurenMurphy on May 25, 2011 at 5:53AM

Newsflash: delicious desserts don’t need to be environmentally unfriendly, fatty, sugar laden, and calorie intensive to be delicious. There are decadent alternatives that don’t involve 100 calorie crap packs full of artificial sweeteners and other indecipherable ingredients. I’ve put together an easy, fast, drool worthy, RAW brownie recipe that’s free of dairy, eggs, gluten, and refined sugars! Who doesn’t love brownies… and who thought that brownies could be… healthy?!?The raw cocoa used heavily in this recipe provides a hard hit of cancer fighting and age defying anti-oxidants, along with satisfying your chocolate craving without blowing your beach body plans to crap. Also, these brownies are chock full of protein, with the almond butter and the walnuts and almonds in the base. So indulge without the bulge, or the guilt!
