Who doesn’t love a good brownie? They remind me of being a kid again, begging my Mother to lick the bowl and mixing spoons. From the fudgy texture to the chocolatey taste…how can you go wrong? Healthy Paleo Brownies! Yum!
After years of cooking for clients all over Los Angeles who are following specific diets, mostly gluten and dairy free as well as Candida, i’ve been hard at work recreating classics in a way that they can still enjoy! I’m particularly proud of this recipe. It made it all the way to Ann Boroch’s Candida Cure Recipe Book! I’d even argue that if you didn’t tell anyone that this recipe is actually good for you, you wouldn’t even know!
These brownies are moist, fudgy and chocolatey delicious! And as if those aren’t enough reasons to make you want to get in the kitchen and whip up a batch, they’re free of gluten, grains, dairy and refined sugar too.
If you are suffering from Candida, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) or another auto-immune disease, it’s recommended to wait at least 60 days before adding cacao back into your diet. So make sure you are at least 2 months into your plan before indulging!
