Gluten-free Salted Caramel Maca Brownies

Full-on indulgence !

It’s been a long week and it’s only Wednesday, bring on the BROWNIES!
Weeks like this you don’t need a brownie… you need brownies, many of them my friend.

These salted caramel brownies are moist without being cake batter, and also have a slight fudgyness to them. Definitely a brownie recipe I believe you can add to the fam’s favorites list.

Be my guest to try them out and prove me wrong.


These brownies would be the perfect after-dinner dessert along with this adaptogenic sleep tonic.
