Chocolate Birthday Cake Brownies

So this week I’m officially a little older and, apparently, a little wiser… After MANY attempts at perfecting this recipe, taste-testings and random weekend bake-offs, I am so excited to share with you my new favourite gut-friendly treat: chocolate birthday cake brownies!  

They taste like a decadent chocolate cake with the fudgy texture of a brownie, yummo!  We have been indulging in this divine little treat pretty frequently this past few weeks, with lots of birthday celebrations. And we all know that no birthday is complete without a gloriously delicious gut-healthy taste-sensation.  Please, please, please give this simple recipe a go, I know you will love it as much as my friends and I do!
