Megan’s Comments:

Self control.

You may need some of it when making these beauties. The batches never last long. Ever. So you may want to double the recipe if you plan on feeding more than yourself.  Each ingredient is so nutritious, there is no need hold back those days when you really need a brownie. Gluten Free, sugar free, dairy free….make these and enjoy one, or three, in peace.

Dates:

  1. Help improve the digestive system as it contains soluble and insoluble fibers and different kinds of amino acids.
  2. Dates are rich in potassium to help regulate a healthy nervous system.
  3. They are rich source of protein, dietary fiber, calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium and zinc.

Cacao:

  1. Cacao is known to increase circulation, improve mood, and is full of calcium, zinc, iron, copper, sulfur, and potassium.
  2. Contains many chemicals that enhance physical and mental well-being, including alkaloids, proteins, magnesium, and beta-carotene.
  3. Cacao is extremely beneficial during a woman’s cycle as it has been shown to decrease undesirable symptoms that tend to come along.

Walnuts:

  1. Walnuts are a powerhouse to the brain and heart! The potassium, calcium, magnesium, vitamin E, and omega 3 fatty acids seriously fuel the body with stable energy.
  2. Walnuts have twice as many antioxidants as other nuts.
  3. Walnuts are one of the few foods that contain melatonin, a hormone that helps control your sleep cycle.

Dr Jockers Comments:

We all love brownies right!  One of my all-time favs!  If you are going low-carb than you will need to avoid these but they are good for cyclic ketogenic diet if you were to have them once per week.

The combination of coconut and dark chocolate is excellent for brain function and neurotransmitter formation.  Dark chocolate is also called cacao this superfood is loaded with dopamine boosting nutrients.  It is one of the best sources of PEA’s which are natural compounds that cross over the blood brain barrier and stimulate and modulate the release of dopamine in the brain.  Cacao is also very rich in magnesium and zinc and chromium which help to balance and stabilize blood sugar.

Cacao also helps to boost serotonin and contains endorphin Anandamide which is considered the “bliss chemical.”  This combination of ingredients makes raw chocolate the best mood boosting superfood.  Be careful not to overdo the chocolate though as the body may develop a sensitivity to some of the compounds in the chocolate and create adrenal stress.
