Easy and Quick Raw vegan brownies
I have to confess i have never been really a fan of chocolate .
But since I am using real cacao in my recipes and my desserts are not loaded with refined sugar and all the unhealthy stuff I am now really enjoying eating chocolate based desserts when I have the chance .
for example these super easy to do Raw cacao brownies are packed with healthy fats , minerals , vitamins ... Raw cacao powder adds high-nutrients, especially antioxidants to any recipe .
There is a big difference between raw cacao powder and the generic cocoa powder you will find in Regular supermarkets .
Raw cacao powder is a real superfood ,packed with antioxidants, proteins , minerals and vitamins, healthy fats, fibers .
Raw Cacao comes from un-roasted cacao beans minimally processed with no additives which allow to keep all its nutrients that would be otherwise destroyed by high temperature ;
Please note it is better to use a non dairy milk for your recipe since research shows that dairy inhibits absorption of anti oxidants from raw cacao.
