Sugar Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free Chocolate Brownies

Sugar Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free Chocolate Brownies

If you are used to eating highly sugared foods or mixes from a box, you won’t like how this tastes.

I am not able to eat wheat or sugar, so these brownies were such a treat for me. But for people who still eat sugar, they won’t give you that usual sugar buzz. They are sweetened naturally using fruits, so it has a very natural taste. The frosting is basically pureed nuts with a little sweetness added. Nothing like the pink and blue frosting on your little cup cakes from Vons.

Here is another sugar free recipe, Low calorie, Vegan, Sugar Free Scones with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting.

Anyone who has been eating a Paleo diet will love these.  They really are very simple to make. It is Just basically throwing everything into the food processor. I am not used to baking and even I managed to make these without messing up.
