Nutritional values

The cocoa powder and dark chocolate in these delicious brownies contain plant substances called catechins, which help support cardiovascular health.

If you don't like the taste of espresso, simply replace it with cow's or almond milk. The walnuts can be replaced by hazelnuts or pecans.
