Vegan Brownies

Our friends Stacey and Meg at Cut Cooking created a super fudgy vegan comfort dessert that everyone can enjoy — it's gluten free, egg free, dairy free, and packed with protein!

"From personal experience, we recognize there’s nothing better when you discover a recipe that fits within your food ‘parameters’ restrictions or not, we promise everyone will love these brownies."

We've adapted the recipe slightly to use traditional ingredients but with a link to Cut Cooking's own gluten-free flour mix recipe.
