Chocolate Cocoa Brownies

Dark Chocolate Cocoa Brownies

I love scarfing down “healthy” desserts knowing they’re not that bad for you…despite how great they taste! Depending how much sugar you decide to add to the recipe below, these brownies tend to be a little bit more on the bitter site. Peanut butter drizzled over the top takes away from the bitterness and gives off the perfect sweet and salty taste.

This recipe still has sugar but only about 1/4 cup of pure sugar and the rest being a few tablespoons of honey and maple syrup. Warm these up and top these with peanut butter or a large scoop of ice cream. You can also bake these in a cast iron and eat right out of the skillet to make you feel like you’re at a restaurant (plus extra crispy edges)!
