You will never be able to tell that these delicious, dense, rich fudge brownies are actually made with better-for-you ingredients, compared to the traditional sugar filled ones (promise)!
I used to be a sugar addict (no joke). I would think about it all the time & truly craved something sweet multiple times a day. When people ask me how to transition to a healthier I lifestyle one of my number one tips is to find healthier versions of your favourite meals & treats!
For these brownies I kept the sugar, grains, gluten & dairy away from them. But don’t let this make you think they are any less delicious. This is hands down one of my favourite recipes I have ever made. If you are a brownie lover, you’re in for a real treat with these. PS if you don’t want to make the caramel & do the topping these are still AMAZING one their own or drizzled in a little melted coconut butter!
As with most of my recipes my go-to, all natural sweetener is Lakanto. It is made with a mix of monk fruit & erythritol. It bakes very similar to real sugar but doesn’t raise your blood sugar levels. Feel free to replace this with your preferred sweetener of choice, however, I have only tested this one with Lakanto. I used the powdered version, here (US), or here (Canada).
I also used vanilla bone broth protein. I love this protein as it doesn’t upset my stomach & is dairy-free. My favourite vegan ones are this & this. But I also love this grass-fed one as well. Keep in mind you can use any vanilla protein powder but not all protein powder bake the same & I have only tested this recipe with this vanilla bone broth protein.
Okay, now that we have covered the basics let’s get into the recipe! Please come tag me on Instagram if you make them (or any of my recipes) so I can share your creations on my IG stories! I LOVE seeing when you guys make my recipes!
