Paleo Brownies For Clean Eaters

December 8th is National Brownie Day!!!  And, it is Friday this year!!!!  Easy enough….let’s do this!


Because, what I really want is BROWNIES ….. but for clean eaters.

I am…weak.  At least when it comes to chocolate.  Or dessert.  Especially chocolate dessert. I want brownies for clean eaters.

And it is all because of Lindsay at Pinch of Yum.  I blame her for my appetite and my cravings.  You see, she posted a 6 ingredient espresso brownie recipe  that I read and HAD TO HAVE IT!  🙂  However, I need this to be a PALEO brownie!  As in no grains, no dairy, no refined sugar and nothing artificial.  But it must taste great!!  A few changes and I made it happen!

So, my dilemma is solved as I have decided to post 2 great brownie recipes that paleo or clean eaters can indulge in without guilt. Yes, brownies for clean eaters, too.

Happy National Brownie Day!! Continue reading
