OK, guys. These Double-Chocolate Brownie Bites are unreal. You'd think they'd be full of sugars, fats and empty calories given the fudgy texture and rich chocolate flavor, but what if I told you these were vegan, grain-free AND Paleo-friendly? Oh, and they come together in 20 minutes. Yeah... I didn't believe it, either. But these brownie bites from Thrive Market are unbelievably good AND good for you.
