Happy September!!! It's here! September is finally here!!! That means {for us} that spring is coming our way! You know, I'm a spring/summer lover, no?! And I'm pretty excited about it! I've been singing this song all day long! Weather is looking more inviting now, this is definitely the right time to start some gardening work. Which we have been doing today! We have been cleaning our garden the entire morning, because we are planning to grow onions, cucumbers and beetroots other than radishes and tomatoes this year. So exciting! Hopefully they will turn out well. The hard part is finished, now we are ready to start planting.

So I've been with my gardening boots everywhere. Really! {and you can see it here}

But the best part after finishing our gardening was enjoying these brownies! Something chocolatey... always a good treat! I love chocolate brownies but I love even more if I could have a healthier version of brownies. So I'd try this recipe with coconut flour {my newest favorite ingredient} and they are amazingly rich in flavor, free of refinied sugar and milk! They taste just incredibly delicious. And they are definitely healthier!
