Peanut Butter Vegan Brownies

I haven't talked about it much on the blog yet but we are transitioning to plant based and then eventually vegan, it was a big decision for our family but we agreed it was the best for our health and our daughters. I'll make a post about it soon. Anyway, I have always had a sweet tooth especially for brownies, I kid you not I used to eat half a pan in one sitting (don't judge me), so I decided to find a good brownie recipe that I love. 


I went on Pinterest and found the recipe here. I made it and if it wasn't for the whole family I would've eaten it to myself, in one sitting. It was so good. Delicious, creamy and definitely didn't taste like there was a can of black beans in it! The recipe I altered a little bit, but she was my inspiration.

Finding a good brownie recipe was big for me, because it's my go-to dessert for events. This one is quick and can be done in less than an hour, and tastes better than any brownies I've ever had before!
