Gooey walnut & almond brownies

This week I am checking in from the French Alps full of joy, riding high on the excitement that the mountains provide. As a lover of winter sports I am a fan of homemade treats that boost my energy when I am outdoors all day long. Treats that fit into a backpack and don’t take too much effort to make.

Thus, I bring you a sweet treat that is all of the above. Free of conventional ingredients, i.e. butter, eggs, milk and packed with nutritious nuts and plant-based goodies. Try it, enjoy it and crush whatever challenge lies ahead.
