Raw Almond Brownies

"End of the week = time for a chocolatey treat. Who’s with me? I was craving brownies and whipped up these RAW FREEZER BROWNIES. No cooking required and ready in 15 minutes! Recipe inspired by @ohsheglows. This weekend, I’m looking forward to eating more of these brownies and relaxing with my husband. It doesn’t always come naturally for me to slow down and relax, but more and more I am realizing IT’S OK (and necessary!) to take a break sometimes."
