Urban Remedy Brownies

These yummy, nutritious brownies are only 190 calories and pack in 8 grams of protein. "Our delicious brownies are raw and vegan as well as gluten-, grain-, and white sugar-free," says Urban Remedy founder Neka Pasquale. "We use only whole food, raw ingredients like sprouted almonds, organic coconut, cacao, unrefined coconut sugar and Himalayan sea salt. Our brownies not only satisfy that sweet and salty craving but being that they're dehydrated at low temperatures, they're easy to digest and are rich in vitamins, minerals and enzymes."
