If you know me, you know that I love simple and delicious recipes and these brownies are no exception.

When I was first diagnosed with PCOS I thought that was it. The foods I loved were out (like brownies) and I was going to be living on carrot sticks and hummus for the rest of my life. Although, that ain’t a bad thing because we all know how much I love hummus.

Since then I’ve come up with a collection of various brownie recipes and today I’m going to share with you my simple PCOS friendly chocolate brownies.

Why are they PCOS friendly?

Well they are filled with:

  • slow releasing carbs;
  • healthy fats; and
  • natural sugars

These brownies are wonderful fresh out of the oven or fridge, with a side of fresh berries or your favourite PCOS friendly ice cream.
