I really needed a pick me up brownie today. It was my first time making brownies with coconut flour and I couldn’t be more pleased with how they turned out - soft, moist, and chocolatey. The raspberries add a little bit of tartness that makes the brownies all the more sweet.
After two brownies I feel slightly better about life.
