Rich, chocolatey, brownies. Who doesn’t love them? They are the quintessential American dessert. Moms make them for their kids after school, they are served with thick icing and sprinkles at birthday parties, and they are presented à la mode at practically every restaurant across the US. However, no matter which way you slice it, they are always baked with eggs, butter, and copious amounts of refined sugar. Even “veganized” versions still require heavily processed flour and many times oil to replace the eggs and butter. And we all know how I feel about baking. So how is one living a whole foods, plant-based lifestyle supposed to get that occasional brownie fix?
