Holiday season is here. Christmas and New Year's Eve are around the corner and everyone is getting ready for festive dinners and holiday goodies. Those meals are usually loaded with carbs and a few good moments on the lips usually mean a lifetime on the hips (JK enjoy). I want to share with you my recipe for the vegan, grain-free and gluten-free Chocolate Brownies, a perfect addition to your celebratory table. This recipe is quick and easy to make and will be ready in just 20 minutes. Even though they're vegan, grain-free and gluten-free, you'd never guess so from the fudge texture and the deliciously rich chocolate flavor. You can enjoy this healthy Christmas dessert with your loved one guilt free.

After you take it out from the oven.
I decorated it with a simple frosting just because it's Christmas, but you can skip if you want to save some calories.
