Continuing with my cardamom kick 👟 i’ve added it to my favorite grain free brownies 😆 and it’s hard to describe the joy i feel for these brownies 🤤... let’s just say they’re delicious 😋 plus! these good-for-you brownies are loaded with goodness like real cacao powder 🍫 from @healthworkschef
and only slightly sweetened with plantains, apples 🍎 and a touch of @nunaturals
stevia. because sugar sucks😜 ready for a nerdy 🤓 food fact?... what’s the difference between cacao and cocoa powder? 🍫while they are pretty interchangeable, the health benefits and processing are quite a bit different. 🤔
raw cacao is made by cold-pressing unroasted cocoa beans ⛄️this process keeps the living enzymes in the cocoa and removes the f*t (cacao butter). cacao is the highest source of antioxidants and magnesium of all foods 😯 in fact cacao is packed with all sorts of goodness:
magnesium (great for “that time of the month”) 🤫and other essential minerals like calcium, sulfur, zinc, iron, copper, potassium, and manganese polyphenols, antioxidant rich flavonoids
vitamins galore: b1, b2, b3, b5, b9, c, e 💛heart-healthy, oleic acid, a monounsaturated f*t 🍫cocoa looks the same but because it’s been roasted at high temperatures, most of these beneficial qualities are lost. 🔥again, you can still use cocoa powder, this is just “food for thought” and why not make your desserts both delicious and healthy? .
