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.

Health Benefits of Raw Organic Nut & Seed Butters:

  • Lowers Cholesterol

  • Low Carbohydrate Content for Weight Loss

  • High Protein & Fiber for Stabilizing Blood Sugars & Bowel Regularity

  • Improved Brain Function & Prevents Alzheimers

  • Lowers Risk for Mortality & Chronic Diseases ( Gallstones, Cancer, Diabetes, Heart, Lung & Neurodegenerative Diseases) International Journal of Epidemiology 2015

  • High Antioxidants Reduce Inflammation

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.

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!

Tips

  • 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.

  • AVOID PLASTIC due to cancer causing & hormone disrupting chemicals

  • Please avoid your specific food allergies. This recipe is allergy-free as above, when the correct ingredients are used as per the recipe above.

  • These brownies are yummy, filling and nutritious!
