If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, you’ll know that my downfall is anything sweet. Chocolate, ice cream, cake, you name it, I love it all. The best thing out of all of it? Brownies. There’s something about the gooey middle and crunchy topping, the chocolate chunks that melt in your mouth and that mouthwatering freshly baked smell that lingers in your house. If I was stranded on a desert island, what would I take with me? A lifetime supply of brownies. Because they taste good, they’re obviously bad for you. But what if I told you there was a brand that can save you whether you’re gluten or dairy free and you can enjoy baking without any hassle of buying expensive products and the preparation time is only 5 minutes?! Too good to be true, right?
Sweet Deceits are passionate about great tasting, healthy desserts and love home baking. They have produced baking kits from brownies to peanut butter bite-sized balls and caramel slices which are dairy-free, refined sugar-free and gluten free and still taste as good! It’s perfect for those people out there who have a sweet tooth and struggle to balance a healthy lifestyle due to their intense cravings. All you need to do is follow the step by step guide which is straightforward and quick. Voila!
Cacao powder which helps relieve tired muscles and is one of the best antioxidants. It contains sulfur which is able to strengthen hair and nails and even acts as a mood booster to put a smile on your face. Coconut flour which is high in fibre which enables our digestive system to be healthier. Coconut blossom nectar (sounds fancy), this is a natural sweetener which is packed with nutrients and doesn’t spike the blood sugar levels. And of course, everyone’s saviour, coconut oil. Coconut oil is great for fighting bacteria and can reduce those annoying cravings and hunger pangs. Hallelujah!
When opening the Sweet Deceits package, you will find a disposable foil tray and 2 packets, one being coconut oil and the other being dry ingredients. Preheat your oven to 175 degrees or gas mark 4. Empty the coconut oil into a bowl and microwave it for 40 seconds or until it’s melted properly.
Next, empty the dry ingredients into a bigger bowl and add two large eggs and then mix in the coconut oil. Keep mixing until you have the perfect brownie batter (Trust me, you’ll just want to eat the whole bowl).
Grease the disposable foil tin or line with baking paper and pour the mixture and spread it evenly. Then pop it into your oven and bake for 25 minutes or until a skewer comes out almost clean. Absolute gooey perfection!
When something is raw and organic, I always think to myself ‘Oh God, this is going to taste awful’, I was mentally preparing myself for that horrible powdery aftertaste and ‘chocolate’ that hasn’t even touched any cocoa powder. I WAS SO WRONG. These brownies are the shit! They taste just as good as Grandma’s homemade brownies and the benefit is that you don’t feel guilty after eating 4. (YAAAS!) The gooeyness is just right and the chocolate is so rich that your taste buds feel like they’re in heaven. I mean, look how delightful they look! Foodporn.
