Cashew Butter Brownie

I love treats but I don’t always love how they make me feel, so I make alternatives that won’t result in sugar overload but still leaves me completely satisfied. This Cashew Brownie is so rich and decadent, you’d never know it doesn’t have refined sugar.

3 Tbsp Water
(or 1 egg instead of seeds and water)
1 cup creamy cashew butter
5 Tbsp Cacao powder
5 Tbsp Coconut sugar
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
3/4 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate chips
