Brownies… one of America’s favorite desserts! Unfortunately, most brownie recipes are loaded with processed starches, sugars and unhealthy fats that contribute to weight gain. Luckily, these brownies are full of healthy, plant-based ingredient – high in fiber and protein, antioxidants, magnesium, potassium, vitamins A and C – can’t get much better!
