The flavour combination of these brownies is incredibly moreish with the tart raspberries and fudgy rich chocolate being perfectly complemented by the distinctive taste of pistachio. The outside of the brownie cracks as you take a bite and reveals a soft chocolate middle with crunchy pistachios and zings of raspberry. These healthy brownies are grain and dairy free and with under 3.5 net carbs a slice they are ideally suited to a ketogenic or paleo lifestyle! They are great with coffee as snack or make a delicious dessert lightly warmed in the oven served with a dollop of coconut cream.

The brownies will keep in an air tight container for 3 days… if they last that long!
