Well hello there and happy hump day! Just go ahead and take a few moments to stare at the masterpiece above. It’s a beautiful thing.
So the other day I was cravings chocolate mad hard. (Does anyone else instantly think of Jersey Shore when someone says “mad hard”?) I had a box of Simple Mills Chocolate Muffin + Cake Mix in my pantry, so I thought I’d make some muffins. But then I saw instructions for brownies, and was like, brownies sounds so much better than muffins. And then I saw a brand new bag of Salted Peanut Chocolate WholeMe Clusters on the shelf below, and I struck inspirational gold. My body has been tolerating peanut butter lately, but not almonds/almond butter. Weird, but I’m not complaining. Which is why these brownies aren’t technically paleo, but they are still grain/gluten/dairy/soy free.
If you’re like me and you can’t wait for your brownies to fully cool and for the crust to set in the fridge, you can go ahead and dive into these babies while they’re fresh out the oven. But be warned – your crust will almost definitely crumble. The coconut oil needs to fully cool to hold it together, but if you don’t care cause it’s all going to find it’s way into your mouth anyways – then you do you. Don’t even cut it, just start eating the pan with a fork. No judgement here.
In case you haven’t heard of WholeMe, they’re an amazing snack company local to Minnesota that currently makes the best grain-free granola on the market. All flavors are totally gluten/grain/dairy/egg/soy free, and every flavor except the salted peanut is paleo! I’m lucky to have been accepted as a brand ambassador for WholeMe, so I get to go around giving people samples of their granola cluster and basically changing lives. It’s pretty cool.
