Xtra Chocolate Fudge Brownies {Grain & Dairy Free}

I have a confession to make.

This morning I had brownies for breakfast.

And one with lunch.


I think that I need to bring these over my parents house because they are just too delicious.

We have  one more week in February before we start the no-processed March challenge. This is another recipe that goes to show you that you DO NOT need to buy boxed brownies. I believe in a few constants—all things in moderation—but the moderate things you eat should be home made. No need for chemicals and GMO’s in our food.

Besides, the batter tasted even BETTER than the boxed stuff.


The latest Food Babe investigation has me even more wound up seeing a side by side comparison on the SAME EXACT products put out by the SAME EXACT same company but with DIFFERENT ingredients! WHY??!!! Why? Because in other countries they do not allow those nasty things in their food. They don’t allow them because they are harmful. And we wonder why American’s are the sickest in the nation? Cancer, heart disease, obesity, diabetes. It makes me sad. Very sad. Heck, in Singapore if you get caught putting Azodicarbonamide in food you can get up to 15 years in prison and be fined $450,000. It’s banned as a food additive in the U.K., Europe, and Australia, yet American companies such as Pizza Hut use it in their cheesy garlic bread. Nice.

Anyway, screw Betty Crocker (who made that list!) and go for my homemade brownies. This one is loaded with healthy fats and I use natural sugars to sweeten it! They are grain-free and dairy-free too! Win!



I mean, look at the ingredient list of a typical boxed brownie versus the one I listed above.


90% of the things on this list are extremely harmful to y our health! You should enjoy brownies and treats in moderation..sugar is bad enough, but we all eat it time to time. There’s no reason to add on hormone disrupting Frankenfoods to that list! Get out of here with that!


Some other exciting news–my blog made Greatist and I got a job teaching at my FAVORITE yoga studio starting next week! I feel so blessed!

Enjoy and speak soon!

Those sound yummy, again with the carrageenan I’ve only been looking in dairy type stuff for it, good thing I’ve been cutting out processed foods more and more.

omg. please come over now and make these! i have been on QUITE a cocoa/chocolate kick lately! i WISH we had european regulations on our food! there are a fair number of countries who don’t even allow stevia! they just use real sugar and real food in general!

p.s. congrats on the greatist shout! i am so proud of you 🙂

Yea I am trying to just limit my stevia use. I found I was getting addicted to it and my taste buds were changing too much AFTER I “lowered” my sweet tooth!

Congrats on all the good stuff going your way! You’re awesome and you deserve it!
The brownies look fantastic… I make something similar, but keep it around one serving (otherwise I eat them all)! I’ll definitely try your recipe next time I need brownies (which I’m sure will be soon…).
