who knew brownies could be good for you? ūüėČ

These healthy brownies¬†are all about gratifying my cravings! They are delicious¬†with nutritious ingredients like flaxseeds, raw cocoa powder and honey. They are great for everyone as they’re¬†dairy-free, egg-free, soya-free, gluten-free and refined-sugar-free;¬†there’s nothing in these beauts that is¬†bad for you! They are truly nice for your bod, not naughty at all!

Somehow these¬†brownies still taste¬†indulgent and rich¬†as all brownies should.¬†I cut out¬†refined-sugar two weeks ago¬†and my bod is loving it, especially when I get to enjoy a treat like these. I’m pretty chuffed with them; they are a¬†healthier version of the good ol’ BOOM brownies,
