Mothers day is coming around (at least according to all the supermarkets I’ve been going into), and as usual, I am unprepared. I have no money for jewelry, and I’m too old to get away with stealing some flowers from the garden and pairing it with toast in bed. However, no one can turn down homemade baked goods! This can be hard if your mother/parent/guardian/loved one has some sort of food restriction, or if you so strict with your food restrictions that you are unwilling to cook with forbidden food stuffs- This recipe is for you! I have managed to figure out how to make a brownie which is vegan, gluten free, and diabetic friendly! Plus, and I don’t mean to brag, but it is freaking delicious.

(Just go with me, it really is!)

I would recommend cutting them up into quite small pieces as they are a little rich, and  you have more to steal.

Enjoy!
