There is no perfect time to make brownies because I believe brownies can be made any time any season. Make it for a reason or no reason, make it more frequent or just for holiday season, they are perfect desserts that you simply cannot say no to! Can you? Haha! And who said brownie needs to have sugar, dairy, refined flour, eggs, and refined oil? This brownie recipe requires none of it and are made with purest of ingredients. These goey, fudgy, chewy, chocalatey brownies topped with pecans and chocolate chips are purely vegan and gluten free and are a decadent bliss to satisfy that sweet tooth. Let’s get started!
