Butternut Brownies (GF, DF)

Butternut Brownies (GF, DF)

Lately my Instagram is **blowing up** with black bean brownies, and they are DELICIOUS!

Unfortunately for me, I can’t do dairy, and have a sensitivity to brownies (I get really bloated :'( ), but I LOOOOOOVE brownies, so I set out to create a similar recipe using a low carb alternative; butternut squash!

To be honest, I was actually surprised at how tasty and moist these turned out after my first attempt!

And the nutrient information is really great too, you could have 2 if you wanted 😛
