Decadent Holiday Brownies Without Guilt

Leave a comment

Advising people not to indulge during the holidays is a lot like placing a bag of M-n-M’s on a toddlers lunch tray and telling them ‘don’t touch’. It’s completely impractical and it’s never going to happen.

Instead of avoiding holiday treats, prepare your own homemade desserts (like the raw, vegan brownie recipe below) with good-for-you-ingredients that delight guests, keep you satisfied, and let you indulge wisely in the mist of holiday chaos.
