Our rich, chocolate brownie slice is a great dairy-free choice for people with lactose sensitivity. Enjoy the rich chocolate taste with a nutty crunch from added cashews. We make our slice with dark chocolate, coconut oil, cane sugar, wheat flour, cashew nuts, cocoa powder, baking powder and eggs.
Chocolate and cocoa are high in polyphenols and flavenols, which may offer health benefits such as improving blood flow, reducing blood pressure and improving mood. Coconut oil is a good source of healthy fats that are important for proper brain function, reducing hunger and raising the good blood cholesterol (HDL) levels. Eggs contain choline, an important nutrient for healthy cell membranes and brain function, and antioxidants that are important for good eye health.
We use organic cashews that we source from an independent collective in Wonogiri, Indonesia, that supports small-holder farmers and their families. Cashews have a low glycemic index (GI), which means they won’t spike your blood sugar levels, and are full of fiber, to help digestion, healthy fats and high-quality plant-based protein. They’re also loaded with magnesium, which helps with heart health as well as regulating nerves and blood pressure. Cashews may also be good for people with Type 2 diabetes by controlling blood sugar and insulin levels.
