Welcome to Day #20 of Chocolate and Almonds Theme Week(s).
Today's vegan and gluten-free Fudge Brownie was from Wholesome Bakery (San Francisco, CA). The women-owned bakery, founded by Mandy Harper in 2009, offers high-quality, allergen-friendly and plant-based bakery items.
This brownie was lower-glycemic (sweetened with organic coconut sugar) and was made with 74% dark chocolate, coconut milk and almonds (almond meal).
The paleo-friendly brownie was sweet, moist and dark chocolate-y. (The coconut flavor was very subtle.) The brownie managed to have, simultaneously, a soft semi-velvety and nutty texture and chew. It was very satisfying, and didn't leave me with a sugar buzz. (Thank you.) Although I did find myself wanting to eat another one.
