Gluten-Free Fudge Brownie Recipe

My sweet tooth hit in full force this past week. I seemed to eat anything in my path involving chocolate … and I did’t feel bad about it. I made desserts from scratch, ate small amounts (multiple times a day), and balanced it out with veggies and my favourite booty moving activities. Life is about balance and being able to indulge and celebrate without guilt and shame. If I could never eat dessert again I would be a pretty grumpy person. Who wouldn’t?

 

One of the many desserts I made were these fudgy brownies. I kept them in the fridge all week and grabbed a slice most nights after dinner. Nothing beats a fudge brownie with some fresh strawberries and a drizzle of almond butter. You need to try it.
