Whole Food Brownies

I have a real quicky for you today guys. A simple brownie recipe full of goodness for the body and the taste buds!

My most favourite recipes to share with you guys are the healthy sweet treats. Both whole food and plant-based these brownies can be enjoyed on both levels of taste and wellbeing. You know you've found a keeper when your cakes are healthy enough to eat for breakfast! These tasty morsels are no different. Full of fruits, vegetables, nuts and wholegrain what more could you ask for to start the day right? Oil, refined sugar and guilt free! I give you my tastiest whole food brownies. Enjoy…
