Brownie Sundae

In celebration of National Brownie Day, fire up the oven and try this delicious brownie recipe from Elizabeth’s cookbook, Eating Purely.

Eating purely is all about adding nutrient-rich ingredients to your meals. So instead of a bad-for-you brownie, try swapping in some black beans to add a nutritional punch. Seriously, it may sound weird and kind of gross, but honestly you and your guests will never know!
