Our favorite brownie recipe

Processed with VSCO with s1 preset

This is our go to chocolate brownie recipe, the twins love making it and eating it. I like to tell myself that its allowed once in a while since they’ll be getting some cocoa in them.

“Cocoa also contains approximately 43.6 mg of flavonoids per gram. Flavonoids are part of a powerful group of antioxidants known as polyphenols, and according to Medical News Today, cocoa is one of the highest polyphenol-containing foods”.
