Happy new week friends! I have another delectable brownie recipe for you, Chai Chocolate Brownies!
These gluten free chai infused brownies are:
Spiced with classic chai ingredients
I’ve been wanting to combine chai and chocolate together in a sweet recipe for the past couple of week, finally created this masterpiece! First I thought of making a sheet pan cake with chai infused buttercream frosting but then I wanted to keep it simple for you but still celebrate the chai and chocolate together.
I still plan on making some sort of sheet cake, maybe next week? Yes, but different flavours, what do you think?
There’s nothing too fancy going into the making of these chai chocolate brownies and I think we all secretly love that, easy and quick to make sweets, so much yes! The only special ingredient you may not already have on hand are the chai teabags, but they’re easy to find, pick a packet up at your local supermarket or health food store!
