This paleo fudge brownie recipe is ideal when you want something very rich to satisfy your cravings for chocolate. If you are used to sweet foods, you may want to start with a sugar detox and then you can omit the added stevia and sweeteners to make it sugar detox compliant. I love unsweetened dark chocolate after living a sugar-free life for several years as a sugar detox health coach. You can change your tastebuds to love these healthy treats too!
