Paleo Brownies with Chocolate Hazelnut Swirl

The last recipe you will ever need for paleo brownies! These boyfriend approved brownies are so decadent and fudgy they will leave you licking your fingers clean and begging for more–speaking from experience here.


Yum

I’ve been a healthy dessert connoisseur for a few years now and I’ve probably made a hundred different “healthy” brownie recipes and I can confidently say that none of them compare to this brownie recipe. First of all, these brownies do not taste healthy–like at all! My boyfriend stays 10 feet away from any food that’s labeled “healthy” and when he tried these, he had no idea I made them using all paleo and gluten-free ingredients! Secondly, the fudge factor on these are just insane! INSANE! Nothing can really describe it so I suggest you try it for yourself. Go ahead, you deserve it! Make yourself a batch of these brownies asap–I promise you won’t regret it!

Besides the beautiful aesthetic touch poppy seeds add to cakes and muffins, they are also full of health benefits! Poppy seeds are a great source of fiber and minerals. Much like the chia seed, poppy seeds help lower cholesterol and aide the prevention of disease.
