Raw Chocolate Brownies - The Nourishing Kind June 06 2014 by Simone Denny

Hello Lovely Friend, 

As you well know I'm never one for baking treats in their traditional form - I love to turn a recipe into a nutrient dense version of it's former self :). So that is what I've done with the good old chocolate brownie. I know how gooood traditional brownies are so it wasn't an easy task but this recipe isn't a bad reincarnation considering it is refined sugar free, dairy free and gluten free. 

I love that these brownies taste so decadent but for the most part they are are made of fruit and nuts and other nutrient dense food. They are a great protein source from the almonds and walnuts and are a rich source of antioxidants and magnesium from the raw cacao powder. You can add your own super foods, such  maca powder, lucuma powder or protein powder (i.e. brown rice protein powder ). I have to say I think they're pretty good as they are.

Don't forget to check out our New Coconut Products this week!


Ceres Organic Coconut Chips - seriously good. I am eating them by the handful, crisp and tasty and so good to add to salads, desserts, muesli etc. 

Coconut Magic Coconut Nectar - think caramel in a jar but with low GI and full of minerals. We love coconut magic products and this one is no exception.
