Delicious, moist brownies chock-full of bitter-sweet walnuts. There’s wholegrain flour in the batter and deliciously crunchy almond flakes on top.

I baked a batch this morning and I won’t lie to you – had 3 pieces as breakfast. Yum!

Less sugar and more walnuts make this recipe the perfect alternative to traditional unhealthy desserts.

These brownies are diabetes-friendly due to high fiber content and a lower glycemic index (making your blood sugars not raise as fast).
