NOURISH YOUR BODY
GLOW ON THE OUTSIDE
By Dr Megan Chircop
These bite-sized brownies are the answer to your chocolate cravings. They are ooey-gooey and fudgy - everything a brownie should be. Best of all, they are grain-free and dairy-free and are made with some of our most favourite healthy ingredients - avocado and sweet potato. Crazy I know, but just wait till you try them.
Did you know that we often crave chocolate when we are deficient in the mineral magnesium. Signs of deficiency include eye twitches and muscle cramps.
Apart from tasting great, these amazing brownie muffins are super fudgy, and contain only 1/2 teaspoon of added sugar per brownie and are loaded with magnesium-rich ingredients like avocado, and cocoa powder.
Your blood sugar levels are not going to go through the roof like a bar of chocolate loaded with sugar either. Instead these brownies pack a punch with hidden fibre and healthy fats that will keep you satisfied all afternoon.
