Chocolate Brownies with Secret Spinach (Gluten-Free, Paleo)

Don’t freak out at the title of this blog post. I promise you can’t taste the veggies at all.

In fact, it’s the spinach in this recipe that’s the key to the moist, fudgy texture of these brownies. There’s over one whole cup of spinach in this recipe, and you could probably add more if you wanted.

Luxuriously rich, moist brownies strangely loaded with dark leafy greens that you, or your kids, absolutely can’t taste. So sneaky and so cool, right?!
