These raw brownies are as easy as 1-2-3! Who knew healthy treats could taste so amazing?
Not only can you make them in 10 minutes or less, but they actually contain ingredients that are good for you!
Walnuts: are exceptionally high in precious omega-3 fats! Walnuts are also a rich source of monounsaturated fat, an essential fat necessary for improving cardiovascular health and optimizing brain function.
Raw Cacao: this familiar treat is loaded with powerful antioxidants, minerals and essential fats. In the ORAC rating (antioxidant capacity), raw cacao powder is at the top of the antioxidant list with almost four times the amount of antioxidants as Goji Berries.
Dates: When it comes to the number of minerals, vitamins, and health-promoting phytonutrients in dates, suffice to say there are a lot of them! First and foremost, they are easily digested. They are an excellent source of easy to use energy, fibre, vitamins and minerals. Try using them in baking recipes instead of corn syrup or sugar.
