Nutrition First Brownie Mix Review
If you are looking for a healthier alternative, these are perfect. They look and smell like brownies, but they don't possess the same "fudge" quality that most brownies sport. I would love to experiment and see how they would fare if I substituted applesauce or ground black beans for the butter or oil. I followed the directions this round.
These little guys are very dense, sturdy brownies and would hold up well in a packed lunch or for a picnic. I have a feeling that the brownie drops featured on the backside of the pouch would turn out like a thick cookie.
Overall, I was impressed with the brownies mainly because I got a serving of fiber into my children without tears and tantrums. They were a fun way to get your fiber and it feels like a treat. I only hope my children don't catch wind that these are "healthy" brownies...
I want to let you that I was not paid for this review.
Here are a few pictures and links of their products, just in case you wanted to look at the ingredients and obtain more information:
