Aside

Brownies? Did someone say BROWNIES??

Let me tell you friends, I LOVE chocolate. I’m a sucker for chocolate. I said it before, I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but I DO however, love some chocolate. Well, I am part of this AWESOME group of women, (follow on IG @ Fixedonfit or Facebook @ http://www.facebook.com/angeliroge) who have shared some really wonderful recipes for clean, natural ingredient sweets. One of these were… you guessed it, CHOCOLATE BROWNIES!! I was hooked from the moment I read the recipe name. Then I tried them. HOLY HECK! These things are BANGING! I will tell you now that the original recipe called for almond butter, but I didn’t have that, so I used peanut butter instead. Equally as amazing. I’m sure I will try this with almond butter eventually, but this is what I had, so it’s what was used. I felt obligated to share them with you. It’s almost Valentine’s day, and you all deserve it. 🙂
