My husband’s favorite brownie is his Nana’s brownies. Well, I was determined to find an easy, but yummy vegan brownie he would love too. I figured I could at least come in second place. LOL
I came across a vegan recipe that Tasty had for a vegan brownie. It had chocolate oozing out of it. I had to try it.
Girl!!..this brownie will change your life! I will eventually come up with my own brownie, but for now...I will enjoy this one from #buzzfeedtasty.
