I found this adorably miniature iron skillet at Target last week and needless to say, I’m obsessed with baking desserts in it!

 


 

 

Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I thought I would experiment with some red velvet flavored goodies – using my skillet of course!

 

 

These Healthy Red Velvet Brownies are gluten-free made using brown rice flour, almond flour and protein powder. I’d say the fudge factor on these little treats are a perfect ten! If you are looking for a deliciously healthy homemade Valentine’s gift, you can’t go wrong with these naturally colored red velvet brownies!

 

 

I used PEScience Cookies and Cream Select Protein but any vanilla or chocolate flavor will work. Get 30% OFF all PEScience products by using code PBCHOCO!
