Craving something sweet? Wait until you see this amazingly delicious and yummy recipe for vegan hazelnut brownies below.
But first, let's talk a bit about food prep and cravings.
When I have a hankering for a sweet, I try to prepare my own dessert as it truly helps for so many reasons.
When you have to prepare your own food, you are prone to create something super elaborate and/or unhealthy. It has to do with the delayed gratification that seems to help cut down on the craving. In my case, when am the one to put it all together AND clean up the mess, I will either not make it or potentially simplify to something else.
Additionally, when you prepare your own food you visually witness how much sugar, butter, oil, salt, etc. is going into the finished product and I also believe that must help the brain to register portion control. (This is a non-scientific assumption on my part, by the way!)
Lastly but pertaining to the above, you have control over what is put in, can taste test and will be able to adjust based on your own taste.
Here is a super easy recipe for hazelnut vegan raw brownies with a coconut vanilla cashew cream frosting.
