Coffee Brownies

Coffee Brownies

My mom is a HUGE coffee drinker. I so did not not get that trait from  her lol However being the health junkie that I am I have always been concern with the amount of sugar and caffeine that that a cup of coffee can have. 

My mother is in a nursing home is paralyzed from the waist down with multiple scleroses. Every time I visit her I bring her healthier alternatives to the things she likes. I don’t like that my mom drinks coffee but being the Capricorn that she is and the fact that she is still my mom it is not like I can tell her much what to do. So I let my mom sample Karuna’s Turmeric Coffee and she loved it! This is what inspired this recipe.

Coffee Brownies

Karuna’s Turmeric Coffee Sustained Energy drink contains turmeric. Turmeric is a healing power tool! It helps with inflammation and joint pain which is something my mother deals with a lot. Unlike traditional coffee brownies you are also getting the health and healing benefits of this wonderful drink.

Vegan Curve Building Ingredients

I used spelt flour as the base of this recipe. Spelt flour is an ancient grain and is more digestible than traditional wheat. Spelt flour is carb friendly and even has 4 grams of plant based protein per serving.

To make your coffee brownies all you do is combined your dry ingredients with your wet ingredients and you are done! Be sure not to over mix tho!

I am sure you and your mom will love these coffee brownies as much as me and my mom did! Enjoy!
