Today’s post is a bit different than usual but will be the start to a new healthy lifestyle series I am adding onto my blog. Eating healthy is important to most of us, but can be hard to stick to all the time with so many tempting treats around. This is why I was excited to find out about a local raw vegan bakery in town, RawBod. All of their treats are made from all natural raw vegan ingredients and are also delicious. I like to think of myself as a bit of a chocolate snob, especially since I am allergic to gluten and can’t eat much else. So these Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge Brownies are just perfect, and they were made especially for me! I suggested to add peanut butter or caramel on top of the fudge brownie for extra flavor, you can also request this if you would like 🙂
These delicious brownies are made with Raw Cacao, Raw Walnuts, Raw Almonds, Dates, Raw Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, and Organic Peanut Butter. All healthy ingredients. But the really interesting part is that you actually feel better after eating them. On the 3rd day I had a headache, and usually nothing can fix this, but after eating just one little brownie my headache was gone. This is because the raw cacao has higher antioxidants than green tea and red wine. Also, the nutrients in raw cacao decrease inflammation in your body and help fight against free radicals. The brownies are packed with Magnesium from both raw nuts which help control blood sugar levels, and the dates that are used to sweeten the brownies are very high in Iron. So many benefits in one yummy treat!
