A walk + Cakey Brownies

I went on a gorgeous walk the other morning. The leaves have finally started to turn over here and it was a bit foggy out... my ideal walking weather. I did a familiar loop that took me past my favorite mural, garden and park.

After walking I needed brownies. So I made these.

These brownies are made with...wait for it...

CASHEW BUTTER! You could also use almond butter. Despite being grain & dairy-less, these brownies bake up into a cakey dream. I have no idea how, but I am just going to roll with it.

Add your favorite non-dairy ice cream to make this a healthy dessert. Or pile on vanilla gelato like I did. Either/or.
