Christmas Brownies Creation!

Gluten free, refined sugar free treat for the Holidays!

This is a great deconstructed brownie recipe to make for the holiday season that is sure to win over kids and adults alike. Two easy to create variations include one kid friendly alcohol-free version, and a punched up version for the adults.


This desert is a power house of taste and nutrition: made completely without refined sugar, with extra nutrients provided by adding collagen powder to the brownie batter, and topped with sliced bananas and chia seeds. Plus, it looks amazing presented in a cup, so your guests can see the beautiful layers.


For the adult version, cut up brownie pieces are dipped in Grand Marnier to add extra orange flavour with a kick. All other ingredients remain the same in both versions.

The best part is that you can make these brownies ahead of time and keep them in the fridge for two to three days. Just make sure to label the containers so that there aren’t any mix ups.



Let’s create this healthier take on a favourite Christmas desert. Feel free to try other variations and share them with us. Let me know in the comments how it went!
