Wholesome Chow: Organic, Gluten Free, & Vegan Brownie Mix

I took a trip with my mom to one of our favorite stores the past weekend; Home Goods!  Cause Home Goods "makes me happy"! Lol!  No but really, it does, I love that store.  Any who, I stumbled across this Organic, Gluten Free, & Vegan Brownie Mix made by a company called Wholesome Chow and decided to give this mix a shot because I'm absolutely obsessed with anything chocolate, especially brownies :)

 Organic, Gluten Free, Vegan, Brownies!

Super easy to prepare, just add: Butter (non-dairy or dairy), Flax Meal (or an egg) and Water!  Mix, bake and serve these delicious brownies in under an hour!  Made with the finest non-gmo, organic and gluten free certified ingredients...yum!


Wheat, Gluten, Egg, Dairy, Casein, Peanut, Nut and Corn Free!

Mix, bake and serve!
Ingredients: Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic White Rice Flour, Organic Brown Rice Flour, Organic Fair Trade Cocoa Powder, Organic Potato Starch, Organic Tapioca Starch, Sodium Bicarbonate, Aluminum-Free Baking Powder (Sodium acid pyrophosphate, Sodium bicarbonate, Corn starch, Monocalcium phosphate), Xanthan Gum, Evaporated Sea Salt.

Each package yields 6-9 brownies

Not too sure how many calories it comes out to per brownie because  of the way the nutrition facts are... who eats 2 tbsp of dry mix?!  Lol!  I'm assuming if you slice the brownies into 9 equal servings that would equal out to about 2.4 servings per brownie, but I could be way off in my assumption.  I always prefer making anything from unprocessed, all natural, whole foods but these were so easy and delicious I had to share with you fit fam!

I actually had this for breakfast with scrambled eggs!  Freshly chopped organic strawberries topped with a crumbled brownie and all natural almond butter.
Amazeballz! :)
