Berry Brownies

Simple and easy berry brownies! Thanks to my mom for this amazing recipe. She’s been plant based for 8 months now and is never turning back. Words cannot express how proud I am of her. These brownies are a perfect combination of fruit and chocolate. You can serve them warm or even better chilled from the fridge. You can adapt this recipe very easily as well. These are oil free and you have the option to use sugar or not, as I will give a few options to choose from.

My favorite combination with fruit is raspberries so I went with those. You may feel free to use your own favorite fruit in this recipe. I will probably experiment with a different combination the next time I bake these. Alright my friends, let’s not waste any more time and dive right into this creation!
