Chocolate Fudge Brownies

I definitely have a sweet tooth, but as we all know sugar is not great for our health, so in order to be able to fulfil my sugary desires, I try to make my own sweet treats as much possible using natural ingredients. cutting down on processed food, rich in refined sugar and saturated fat, with no real nutritional value.

When I can’t make my own snacks I always choose to buy from a small, local and independent business, that have values aligned with mines.

Deliciously Guilt Free

Basma and Dan are the magic hands behind Deliciously Guilt Free. They started baking their own sweet snacks when Basma was pregnant with her first child and was diagnosed with pregnancy diabetes.

They now bake and sell indulgent keto treats like brownies, blondies, cakes and biscuits that are both low sugar and low carb. Everything they sell is handmade in their kitchen in Cambridge, UK.

I can’t recommend enough their vegan chocolate fudge brownies. They are absolutely delicious, gooey, meltingly soft, mega chocolatey, dense, fudgy and everything a chocolate lover could dream of.

Seriously the best Vegan Brownies I’ve ever had! The quality is amazing, they are virtually carb and sugar-free, made with Tofu, Almonds, Coconut Oil, Coconut milk, cocoa and cocoa butter. Made without any weird ingredients, you’d never believe that they could taste this good!

I’m trying my best to describe them, but I feel I’m not making them justice, so nothing better than trying for yourself 😉 for all the chocoholics out there, this is for you!

They ship to all over the UK, USA and Ireland and hope to ship to more EU countries in the near future.

I just hope that more vegan products get launched in the future 🙂
