Brownies on the brain.
About the time February hits, I’m done with winter and in need of some serious comfort food. I love filling my belly with chilis, veggie pastas, and meatballs, but there’s still one comfort food I need… Y’all know what kind I mean: brownies. Cake is good, cookies are good, there is definitely a time and a place for ice cream, but in the dead of winter I need brownies!
They’re fudgy, dark, decadent, and the perfect comforting treat to get me through to spring.
Paleo brownie love.

Mexican blender brownies.
These paleo Mexican blender brownies are new to my list of favorites. I’ve always loved adding spice to my chocolate, but I had yet to perfect a Mexican chocolate brownie… until now.
Dark and rich, these little beauties are pretty close to the perfect mix of heat and sweet. If you’ve never tried Mexicanizing your chocolate, I strongly suggest you give it a try.
If you’re not quite sure what makes chocolate Mexican, let me enlighten you. (Actually, I’ve never been to Mexico, so I can’t say 100%, but I’m just guessing off my love for Taza chocolate bars…) It’s really pretty easy.
First off, you need some good quality spices. I like this bulk cinnamon from Frontier Herbs, but I’ve also used Costco’s cinnamon and it’s not bad if you’re in a pinch. Simply Organic’s cinnamon is good, too! Speaking of Simply Organic, I’d use their stuff for the chili powder, too. And the black pepper.
You can use more or less of these spices, depending on how hot you like your brownies. I unfortunately have to share with wimpy kids (spice-speaking), so this recipe is on the mild side, FYI.
In the recipe card I’ve linked to some of the products from my affiliate partners that I like to use. Purchasing through these links won’t cost you anything extra. Thanks!
