Caramel Nut Brownie

Calories: 180 calories in 1 bar

Today was Day #5 of Chocolate Brownie Theme Week.

The Luna line of Nutrition bars (from Clif Bar) was "created by and designed for women."

Today's Caramel Nut Brownie contained soy protein and 24 Vitamins and Minerals, giving this nutrition bar the general flavor (not too sweet) and texture of a protein bar (substantial but less velvety than pure chocolate).

Nice to see some organic ingredients. This bar was "70% Organic," and contained organic chocolate chips, organic unsweetened chocolate, organic cocoa butter and organic chocolate flavor.

The Big Yummy - Double Chocolate Brownie
Very Good
Weight: 4 oz. (113.3 g.) in total package - 1 brownie
Calories: 420 calories in 1 brownie
Cost: $2.79 for 1 brownie
Purchased from: Country Sun Natural Foods, Palo Alto, CA

Today was Day #4 of Chocolate Brownie Theme Week.

Wholesome Chow (Los Osos, CA) offers a line of gluten free and vegan cake mixes, and now this ready-to-eat "The Big Yummy" brownie.

This Double Chocolate Brownie was soft, moist and cake-like. The addition of chocolate chips enhanced, or doubled, the chocolate flavor. One of my favorite brownies so far, and proof that wonderful results are possible without traditional baking ingredients (wheat flour, eggs and dairy, butter, etc.).

This individually-wrapped brownie was supposed to contain three servings. Sadly, the brownie was eaten in its entirety and no more was left to share with others, she confessed as she wiped brownie crumbs up to hide the evidence.
