Recipe: Lauren Dangoor’s Layered Gluten-Free Pistachio Brownies

0

This dairy-free and gluten-free recipe for layered pistachio brownies makes them a lot more accessible for those intolerant to lactose and gluten. Sweetened with maple syrup, they’re also free from refined sugar! Lauren Dangoor talks us through the perfect healthy brownie recipe; a festive treat no less. 

A perfect way to treat yourself after a long hard day, and very festive as well! Dessert is definitely one of my weak spots. I have had a sweet tooth every since my teeth appeared. So being healthy was definitely a struggle for me at the beginning. However, after experimenting with ingredients and alternative sweeteners, I was able to come up with perfect dairy free and gluten free brownies. If you are a fan or chocolate, then these are perfect for you. Just one piece is enough to satisfy a sweet tooth craving.
