Raspberry-Pistachio Brownies

Raspberry-Pistachio Brownies

The taste of chocolate, pistachios and raspberries sounds like a poem to me. I just love to combine chocolate with something fruity, because it gives the chocolate such a nice flavor. I usually add raspberry puree or pomegranate juice to my chocolate creations, give it a try and you will never go without it again.

These vegan brownies or to be correct raspberry-pistachio brownies are our family favorite and especially my son has a huge love for them (his sweet tooth is bigger than the Empire State Building)!!!

What I personally love the most about brownies, there are endless varieties of them. Chai brownies, fruity brownies, espresso brownies…just to name a few.

This version is honestly amazing and if you want to make a healthier version, feel free to use maple syrup instead of sugar for the brownies.
