Easy Vegan Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Hey y'all!

Looking for the perfect sweet treat to take with you to all the ugly sweater parties this holiday season? I've got you covered! These brownies have one of my fave ingredients ever -- Chia seeds! They're actually one of the healthiest foods on the planet. These tiny seeds are full of nutrients, antioxidants, and fiber! They mix right into the batter so you don't have to feel guilty eating one or two slices ;)

Let me also add that in no way am I a food blogger. Honestly, food photography is one of the hardest things for me. I'm the type to slap something on a plate and dig in. So don't mind my photos, I promise that these brownies are full of all sorts of ooey-gooey deliciousness!

  1. I haven't thought of using yogurt while baking. As someone who is vegan, I find it difficult to bake vegan. It's often easier for me to run to Whole Foods to grab a vegan dessert. This recipe looks so easy that I might have to give it a go.
