Fudgy Brownies from Scratch with Chocolate Dandelion Root Tea

Sourdough discard brownies might be all the rage right now but there is still a place for standard fudgy brownies from scratch, especially when they are homemade brownies. Let me tell you what, if you want fudgy, moist, and chocolaty with a kick of coffee-like flavor then these brownies are the ones! They are practically 'health food' when you sub in the einkorn flour and maple syrup for an all-natural sweetener.

Add in there the benefits of dandelion root coffee and chicory root tea then you have one tasty brown recipe. Let's dive into why you should include these two herbs in your homemade brownies.

Dipped Shortbread Cookies - without sugar

When I polled tea drinkers on various Facebook groups, guess what the most common dessert to have with tea was?

Nope, not scones. Shortbread.

Shortbread is a very light, delicate cookie, very dainty and perfect for an afternoon tea time treat. It is light in flavor, yet sweet making it easy to pair with about any cup of tea. Whether it be black, green, or your favorite herbal.

These short bread cookies though.

They probably shouldn't be so yummy, it just means that I eat too many. It's a good thing they are free of any refined sweetener, sugar free and made with a whole grain flour. Healthier for sure, and dare I say even more flavor?!
