Purely PMS Brownie Bites

These brownies are not “healthy” per se, but what I call an “upgrade”. Made with raw cacao powder, coconut sugar (which is still sugar, but a more natural, upgraded version), natural almond butter and zero flour, they are safe for those with celiac disease and gluten intolerance. Oh and by the way…I topped them with raw cacao nibs and little pieces of cooked bacon from Applegate Organics, which is free of preservatives, hormones, antibiotics, nitrites, and nitrates.

If you are feeling a little hormonal and ready to bake up a batch of crappy boxed brownies, do yourself a favor and try this recipe. It covers all PMS-related cravings wrapped up into one: sweet, salty, chewy, and chocolaty.

Once cool, slice the brownies into 24 bite-size pieces and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. One little square, eaten in pure presence, is all it takes to satisfy even the bitchiest PMS craving.😈
