National Brownies-at-Brunch Month!
Brunches have always been a great way to socialise and enjoy meals with loved ones. It has actually been this way since 1895 when the term made its first print appearance in a Hunter’s Weekly article entitled “Brunch: A Plea” by British Guy Beringer. Thereafter, the brunch menu has continued to evolve over the years and became quite flexible depending on the eater. Ranging from meat and eggs, to coffee and cake – no wonder you can have brownies at brunch now! Apparently, it is a thing, and is enjoyed by many so much so that it has an entire month dedicated to it.
Brownies are an excellent dessert, and main course (if you wish) best served with coffee or milk during brunch. Just so you can indulge in it more, here are sugar-free brownie recipes you can try for brunch:
Peanut Butter and Chocolate Brownies
Walnut enthusiasts rejoice! Made with cocoa powder, plain flour, walnuts, and Natvia, there is absolutely no doubt that you will be devouring one (or two) healthy brownie. Serve it for brunch to impress your family, and watch it disappear before your eyes!

Cheesecake Week just ended, and now we’re already onto Brownie-at-Brunch month?! You’ll transition well into this month with cream cheese brownies.

This makes 16 brownies, so go on and invite your friends for brownie-at-brunch this weekend!

This dessert is similar to the cream cheese brownies above, with brownie and cheesecake layers. Only it has strawberries on top. Drizzled with warm jam and melted sugar-free dark chocolate. How does a cheesecake and brownie fusion get better than this?
