I hate to turn on the oven when it’s this hot but I love to bake something sweet. So I make these Simple Raw Vegan Brownie Bites for us to have after dinner or take them with me when I go swimming at the pool. It’s that sweet tooth in the afternoon that is always a challenge for me. Around 3:00 pm I just need a little sweetness but don’t want a piece of fruit.
My go to is the Simple Raw Vegan Brownie Bites that taste just like brownies without the sugar and are gluten free. The easiest thing to make without having to lose the taste of a homemade brownie. The best part is they are good for you too!
