Chocoholics Unite!

I think it’s about time I come clean… I’m a chocoholic. I mean, really. Not just like, “why, yes, I do enjoy a cookie from time to time” more like frantically shouting, “babe, you need to hide all of our child’s Halloween candy somewhere or it will be gone by tomorrow and I’ll be miserable!” I have to keep treats out of the house or I’ll go chocoholic crazy and eat them all without even blinking, but sometimes you just need a chocolate fix.

So what do you do when those chocolate cravings just won’t quit? Binge on less than satisfactory, high sugar candy bars that you stole out of your child’s Halloween bucket? (that’s not just me, right?) No! You whip up a quick batch of Dark Chocolate Paleo Brownies! Gluten free and sweetened with coconut sugar, these cake-like brownies are every chocolate lover’s dream! 100% cacao powder leads to a rich chocolate flavor, made even chocolatey-er (yeah, it’s a word…) by the dark chocolate chips studded throughout. Follow a fresh brownie with a glass of cold almond milk, and you have a delicious treat that satisfies the chocolate craving…without all the guilt!
