Raspberry Brownies

I’ve always loved the flavor of tart raspberries mixed into a sweet and gooey chocolate brownie.  These brownies contain no refined sugar or flour and are 100% delicious.  They will totally hit the spot when that chocolate craving strikes!

While I can typically resist the urge to snack on chocolate, sweets and other treats I’ve got to be completely honest in saying that there are just SOME times when I NEED a brownie (or something else chocolatey and sweet!).  Anyone else feel the same?

Now, this brownie has requirements.  It can’t be just any old boxed brownie.  I want it to be chewy, tummy friendly, and most importantly I want it to taste amazing.

Is that too much for a girl to ask? I think not, which is exactly why I created a wonderful brownie to crush any and all chocolate cravings that may come my (or your!) way.

Why I adore these Raspberry Brownies:

  • They are chewy without being too dense.
  • The mixed in chocolate chunks add a little extra burst of sweetness each time you bite in.
  • They are relatively easy to prepare.
  • They pair perfectly with your favorite ice cream (I love coconut milk ice vanilla ice cream).
  • They are just plain tasty!

These brownies use cocoa powder and espresso to give them a really rich and chocolatey flavor without adding a TON of extra sweetener.  To give the brownies their sweet taste I used a combination of banana and maple syrup, but don’t worry these do NOT taste like banana bread. Another trick I used to get a deeper raspberry flavor?  Crushed freeze-dried raspberries!  These really add that raspberry flavor that take this brownie recipe to the next level.  Freeze-dried fruit may be difficult to find, but I am finding it more frequently now.  Typically, it’s around the produce area and possibly with the nuts or dried fruit.

An added bonus of making your own brownies?  Knowing exactly what’s in them.  No crazy preservatives or unknown ingredients here.  What you see is what you get!

So, who’s in for baking a batch of brownies!?
