This No Guilt Brownie recipe features raw cacao nibs, almond flour, dried fruit for a healthy, low-guilt snack option. It is featured in Dr. Michael Mosley’s book The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet. It is not as sweet as traditional brownies, the sugar source happens to be from high-fiber dates.
It is not as sweet as traditional brownies, the sugar source happens to be from high-fiber dates. The first time I made the recipe, I did not have dates so I substituted Gogi berries and unsweetened raisins. The taste and texture reminded me more of protein “bars” than brownies (think Lara Bar, Luna Bar or similar only homemade with fewer ingredients).
I previously reviewed The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet by Dr. Michael Mosley on Feeling Fit. As mentioned in the review, I received a review copy from the publisher.
