When thinking of a recipe for valentines day I was saying it would be nice to have a dessert that isn’t too sweet and is the perfect treat to sit and bed and feed your LOVER. Chocolate is a MUST on valentines day, and what is better than a moist, rich, chocolatey brownie that takes little to no time to make? (I’ll answer for you, NOTHING.)
Chocolate is the flavor of love, literally – Chocolate contains substances called phenylethylamine and serotonin, both of which (put simply), are mood lifting agents found naturally in the human brain. They are released into the nervous system by the brain when we are happy and when we are experiencing feelings of love, passion or lust. This causes rapid mood change, a rise in blood pressure and increasing heart rate, inducing those feelings of well being, bordering on euphoria usually associated with being in love.
So treat YO SELF and your boo on this day by having some chocolate treats to set the LOVE mood even more.
I hope you guys enjoy this easy and tasty recipe for vegan Beet Brownies, and don’t just make these for Valentines day. These brownies are perfect for a girls night in, for a treat to take in to the office, or a perfect to gift a friend for their birthday! Whatever reason you find yourself making these, remember; A brownie a day keeps the doctor away. (I’m lying but ENJOY! lol) Until next time friends, Happy Cooking and have a LOVE filled Valentines Day.
