There are two desserts that I would rather put in my body than anything else: Chocolate chip cookies and brownies. If you put these two things in front of me I will 100% eat them every time. No self control once so ever.
I've been blending anything and everything with my VITAMIX Ascent Series! Now that spring has hit I am all about the easy cheeseboards and simple light recipes! This is my first Vitamix I have ever had in my 24 years of living and what a game changer! Smoothies, butters, BROWNIE BATTER! You name it!
I channeled my inner health qween and bought some coconut flour. I found that except for the consistency and that they are a little ‘earthy’ (in a nice way!) that these brownies were great. Like still as great as a regular brownie great.
