Choc Nut Butter Brownie Gummy
And it is finally here! So many of you have asked for this recipe and I hope it was worth the wait.
Since I weaned myself of fructose and refined sugar I have missed the richness and texture of a delicious chocolate brownie. But even in times I have taken a bite (on a rare occasion for a little treat) I have found two things - conventional brownies are waaaaay too sweet AND they're full of ingredients that aren't beneficial to my health. So I wanted to try and create something very simple (who has time for a complicated recipe when a girl just needs some chocolate?!) but also very rich and tasty. If you love Reese's peanut butter cups but don't want all those nasties in your bod, (or the sugar crash that comes an hour later) give this one a go.
These beauties are have a fudgey, peanut buttery, chewy texture and are so yummy. Gelatin is high in protein and also are great for your skin and gut health (read more here), nut butters are high in protein and good fats, brown rice syrup doesn't contain the fructose molecule and provides a smooth malty sweetness, and cacao is high in antioxidants and gives a gorgeous, rich chocolatey taste. Enjoy!
- 3 tablespoons of grass-fed gelatin
- 1 cup of nut butter (I used almond butter, but you can also use organic crunchy salted peanut butter - the more dense and nutty the butter is, the better!)
- 2 tablespoons of organic cacao
- 2 tablespoons of organic brown rice syrup (less or more depending how sweet you want it)
1. First, 'bloom' your gelatin by mixing with 1/3 cup water.
2. In a saucepan, warm the nut butter on low heat until it has a smooth consistency. Add in the brown rice syrup and cacao. Once mixed, add in your bloomed gelatin and stir for a few minutes with a whisk.
3. Pour into a glass container and set in fridge for an half an hour. Sprinkle cinnamon, cacao and coconut flakes on top.
7. Set for another half and hour. Once set, cut up into cubes and enjoy!
