1 cup of raw cashews
1 cup of almond meal
1 cup of oats
1 cup of coconut oil
1 tsp. of vanilla extract

The flavonoids in dark chocolate help reduce insulin resistance by helping your cells to function normally and regain the ability to use your body's insulin efficiently. Dark chocolate also has a low glycemic index, meaning it won't cause huge spikes in blood sugar levels.

Raw almonds are filled with healthy fats. While they do contain a small amount of saturated fat, most of the fat in almonds is monounsaturated fat, which is known for its ability to promote healthy cholesterol levels and cardiovascular health.

The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil have been shown to increase 24 hour energy levels by as much as 5%, which can lead to significant weight loss over the long term.

The health benefits of coconut oil include hair care, skin care, stress relief, cholesterol level maintenance, weight loss, boosted immune system, proper digestion and regulated metabolism. It also provides relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV, and cancer, while helping to improve dental quality and bone strength. These benefits of oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and their respective properties, such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-fungal, antibacterial and soothing qualities.

We all know brownies are a comfort food and delicious treat. But unfortunately with regular brownies that comfort likes to stick to our midsection as body fat- yuck!

But there is a way to enjoy the delicious chocolaty goodness of a brownie without all of the fattening sugar.


Our no bake vegan brownies are not only a yummy low-sugar treat, they also contain high quality Complete Pea Protein which has been shown to reduce appetite.

So easy to prepare! This is a no bake recipe! Just blend together and chill:
