The twins, who have written a bestselling Irish cook book, explain that there will be no dairy, no gluten and no refined sugar.
The brownies get their sweetness from medjool dates and sweet potatoes, which also provides the gooeyness.
Meanwhile, the fat comes from almonds and coconut oil.
Melanie says at the beginning of the video: “This is a healthy brownie that everyone can eat and not feel bad.”
