Healthy Brownies: A Valentine’s Day Treat

Every year for Valentine’s Day I make Chad his favorite dessert, brownies. He’s not a big sweets fan, but if there’s one treat that he can devour, it’s a big pan of chocolate gooey fudgey brownies.

This year, as a build up to Valentine’s Day, I decided to test out a healthy brownies recipe. To my surprise (and Chad’s too since he wasn’t super excited about the idea of healthy brownies), they were delicious! If you’re looking for a dessert recipe for your loved one, or want to sit at home with your wine and some brownies and not feel bad about it, this recipe is for you!

These deliciously dense brownies make for the perfect healthier alternative. I am not one to deny a non-healthy brownie, but if I’m making them myself, I might as well make them a little less artificial.

Side note, I took Broma Bakery‘s free workshop on how she turned her food photography into a business, and to say I’m inspired and motivated would be an understatement. I can’t wait to get better at taking photos of my recipes, and more importantly, to have content that I’m super proud of!
