Dairy-Free ✔ Vegan ✔ Gluten-Free ✔ Refined Sugar-Free ✔

If you had the choice to eat one type of dessert for the rest of your life, what would it be? Our guess is chocolate brownies because nothing can beat that soft goodness in every bite. Today, we’re working on brownie cups that are vegan, gluten, dairy, and refined sugar-free! They are naturally sweetened with maple syrup. It not only provides sweetness but also holds the bars together. You can substitute maple syrup with raw honey as it is also a refined sugar-free option. 

Sunchef suggested this recipe to show that we don’t need to only focus on fruits and veggies to stay healthy. We can find different and better alternatives to satisfy our cravings. So if you’re craving some sweet snacks, this dessert is perfect with its natural sweetener. It will keep you from joining the dark, unhealthy side. Brownie cups freeze wonderfully for a last-minute dessert that’s guaranteed to elicit lots of praise. Although these don’t taste exactly like traditional butter and sugar-based brownies (totally different ingredients), they are chewy, rich, full of chocolate, and a great way to satisfy that sugar craving.

Souraya loves creating recipes that turn traditional unhealthy snacks into delicious, decadent, and guilt-free foods. From her happy belly to yours, she redefines no-bake brownies using her very own Sunchef Almond Butter.
