Apparently, I was overdue to share a new brownies recipe with you guys… Or so said Andrew, who’s a brownies addict. As it’s winter, which means cold, snowy, icy weather, I decided to add some special ingredients in order to add a little boost!
One of those ingredients is turmeric, which is a great natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. I regularly make golden paste for both Andrew and I, but also for our pups. Then there’s walnuts, great antioxidant, source of omega 3, anti-inflammatory, good for gut health… It’s a superfood! Now, does it means my brownies are healthy? Well, no. It just means I made them healthier than your average brownies but at the end of the day, it’s still a dessert.
Treat yourself and enjoy!
