Remember when I said that I hated coffee?

Still true.

Unless…. it’s in dessert form of course. These espresso brownies are the perfect way to start your day or fight that afternoon slump. 

But wait a minute, don’t healthy brownies always taste disgusting? Not anymore!! These brownies are made with real espresso, dark chocolate, and almond flour. These brownies are thick, chocolate-y, fudgy and everything a brownie should be!! To top it off, I added a delicious espresso cream cheese frosting! Coffee lover or not, these brownies are a must!
