I made these brownies for the first time a couple months ago and I fell in love. With the brownies of course. They were fudgy, chewy, chocolatey and left me with a fully satisfied sweet tooth. They are for sure a healthier version to my classic childhood favorite chocolate brownie dessert. In my opinion, the best boxed brownie mix of all time is the Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate. I always looked forward to taking the Costco size box of this brownie mix to bake on our family vacations. Mixing it in a bowl, adding the water, eggs and vegetable oil and pouring the guey mixture into a greased pan. They came out perfect every single time, with or without vanilla ice cream. And this recipe right here is comparable to the Ghiradelli ones!
But I am smarter now, not only with my health but I honestly do not crave overly sugary stuff anymore. So a brownie like this, made with real ingredients, tastes so good to me. Not only are these brownies gluten and dairy free, they have almond butter and coconut oil as their fat source. I also use maple syrup and natural raw cane turbinado sugar. A little sweet treat like these brownies are much needed once in a while. Try out the recipe and let me know how it goes.
