My husband, Andy, is a big fan of cacao. He puts cacao into everything- smoothies, ice cream, muffins, hot chocolate, biscuits... Everything contains cacao even to the extent that clients know if a recipe I'm giving to them comes from Andy (if it contains cacao there is a big probability that it its Andy's).
I'm certainly not complaining! Especially when he makes these brownies for us- they are to die for!!
I shared some at my August Calm and Energise Workshop and most of the feedback forms contained comments on how good the brownies were!!
They are a great snack to prepare ahead and take out as you need it from the fridge. They are nut free, dairy free, gluten free, wheat free and don't require any baking.
I've made you wait long enough for the recipe... here it is!
My husband Andy is very supportive of the changes that we've made to our health and lifestyle. He's experienced massive benefits from changing to a whole foods diet and he helps out by cooking nutrient dense foods as often as he can.
He has kindly agreed to share his chocolate muffin recipe with us today! It is gluten free, grain free, nut free and dairy free. It is suitable for lunch boxes as it is nut free.
The kids love them! I do too!
