Recipe: Dr. Jiwani’s Fudge Brownies
Dr. Jiwani’s Fudge Brownies are the key to avoiding your food allergies, losing weight, all while experiencing the moist, rich chocolatey goodness of a delectable treat. There is life after a healthy, hypoallergenic diet, where you can have your cake and eat it too (pardon the pun!)
I made these for my husband’s birthday party as I wanted him to enjoy a birthday treat, without his many allergies and with MINIMAL CARBS! They were a tremendous hit with everyone, not just those with dietary restrictions. I have included modifications if you want a small amount of low glycemic carbohydrates.
I love using nut or seed butter for my baking as it provides fibre, protein, good fats and antioxidants. Nut & Seed Butters in baking enriches recipes using lower carbohydrates with a unmatched moistness. I have experimented with many nut and seed butters, thanks to my handy Cuisinart food processor grinding the nuts & seeds into a smooth buttery consistency.
Nut & Seed Butters can be purchased a local & online grocery stores from Hazelnuts, Almonds, Cashews, Coconut, Macadamias, Walnuts, Pecans, Sunflower & Sesame Seeds. Always check labels for other additives such as sugar, salt and partially hydrogenated oil.
Fat doesn’t make you Fat; Carbs make you Fat – Inside & Out.
Dr. Jiwani’s Fudge Brownies are heavenly decadence, yet Low Carb, Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Corn-Free, and suitable even for those following Paleo, Keto, Vegan & Grain-Free Diets.

Once my health became an issue, I started reading labels and was astonished to find so much sugar & potential allergens (read “gluten-free” as a carb nightmare, and chock full of other allergies) in the store bought ones, often around 23 – 30 grams of Net Carbs per Brownie!
Typical Gluten-Free Brownie Ingredient Label (Read in Horror!):
Molasses & Honey, Brown Rice Flour, White Rice Flour, Cocoa Powder, Organic Chocolate Chunks (Organic Evaporated Cane Sugar, Organic Cocoa Paste, Organic Cocoa Butter, Non-GMO Soy Lecithin/Emulsifier, Organic Vanilla. Chunks may contain traces of milk protein due to manufacturing equipment.), Tapioca Starch, Sweet Rice Flour, Potato Starch, Sea Salt, Gluten-Free Flavors, Xanthan Gum, Baking Soda.
Allergens: soy, may contain traces of milk protein. Produced on equipment that also makes products containing tree nuts, soy, eggs, and milk
This year I began my Healthy, Hypoallergenic baking with Dr. Jiwani’s Fudge Brownies and I couldn’t make them fast enough for my family, so I thought I would share it as it is quite easy to make!
Happy Friday Everyone!

Bake for a shorter time for ooey, gooey brownies. Baking for the full time creates a more cake-like texture.
Cool for 1 hour to allow it to gel, to prevent breaking or crumbling
Serve at Room Temperature & Enjoy with Dr. Jiwani’s Caffeine-Free Chai Latte
If you use a larger baking dish creating a thinner brownie, bake for a shorter time ~ 15-20 mins
I always make extra and freeze the remaining in Glass Lock Containers to ration the family.
