If you’re craving a rich, sweet treat to enjoy after dinner with absolutely no guilt then why not give these brownies a go. The tasty bites are flourless and completely gluten-free which makes them much healthier than the traditional recipe.

The sweet treats taste just like sugar-filled chewy brownies and they are perfect for serving up to larger groups of people. With egg-free dough, you can even eat them raw if you’d prefer!
