gosh, idk where to start with this one because… THESE LAYERS (insert heart eyes emoji). ok, let’s start with a picture so you can see how good these brownies are.
new favorite product alert from Endangered Species!!! 75% OAT MILK + DARK CHOCOLATE CHIPS that are with more cacao and only 2g of sugar, WHAT?!
how amazing is that? these oat milk chocolate baking chips are the ultimate ingredient for better for you vegan baking.
they’re my new staple with a bit of a bolder flavor and less sugar, so Endangered Species did a really fantastic job here.
with this particular product, Endangered Species is bringing awareness to the plight of the Whale Shark!
it’s always amazing to work with a brand that gives back, especially to wildlife and as you know, animals are everything to me.
so good chocolate, good cause, cool cool, what are you waiting for?!
oat milk is a game changer for chocolate by the way!
are you a fan of oat milk? if you have tried it on it’s own but not in chocolate, you’re going to be amazed because it makes the chocolate SO DANG CREAMY.
i also used the baking chips in the sweet potato frosting, which is honestly just like cookie dough!! oh my goodness, what a combo.
it’s festive and the natural sweetness of the sweet potato makes the BEST base for a frosting.
