These brownies are so incredibly easy and feature healthier alternatives to the traditional ingredients found in brownies. Now that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in regular brownies, because let’s be real those are OG.

But….not gonna lie I think these taste much better.

Instead of regular cane sugar, coconut sugar and maple syrup are used. To keep these gluten-free, I opted for almond flour instead of wheat flour. These are also (of course) completely vegan, with the help of coconut oil and almond butter to bind it.
