Cherry Cola Chocolate Brownies


Most of us have eaten brownies made from a store-bought mix at some point in our lives. For us, those days are long gone. This might ruin your day, but a boxed brownie mix can contain over 320 grams of sugar. That’s nearly 3/4 of a pound. On top of that, the ingredient list is a mile long, even including artificial flavoring. We like to keep our recipes clean and we know you’re with us. This recipe includes Zevia Cherry Cola – and makes the most deliciously moist brownies you’ve ever tasted.
