    Ooey Gooey Vegan Peanut Butter & Jelly Brownies

    We spend a lot of time going on about the importance of a good diet that consists of a diverse range of plant-based whole foods. However, for a lot of us, the best way to maintain good and solid healthy habits is by giving ourselves a little time away to indulge.?

    Think of it as a reward-based strategy, you worked hard all week and now you deserve a little treat. We aren?t talking about weekend benders or full-on cheat days, but a meal where we set aside our macros and our meal plan calculations and just enjoy whatever it is that we have been craving is okay within reason, in fact, we encourage it.?

    So, this Friday or Saturday take a few minutes and whip yourself up a batch of these delicious vegan brownies. Careful though, this recipe makes a whole lot of these plant-based treats so you plan how you are going to distribute these to family and friends in advance or maybe even your boss (they are so good you might just get an extra day out of the office with this bribe).?

    Enjoy friends and don?t forget to drop us a comment letting us know how you got on with our Peanut and Butter Jelly Vegan Brownies.
