I’ve been health conscious for over 15 years, but ever since becoming a mom, I’ve even become more serious about finding healthy alternatives for snacking and sweets. Brownies are my favorite dessert, so this has been an especially rewarding creation. I’ve developed the richest, fudgiest version that don’t make me feel guilty when I give them to my family.
These brownies are gluten, wheat, dairy, and soy free, and they’re vegan! The cacao powder is a superfood packed with antioxidants. You’ll get plenty of protein from the almonds, fiber from the dates and figs, and a bit of healthy fats from all of the coconut. Plus, these brownies are sweetened with a bit of coconut sugar, which has a low glycemic index and dates which are a great substitute to refined sweeteners.
