Who wants something sweet and tasty with low sugar and gluten-free 

BROWNIE! The best sweet ever (at least for me). But this brownie is also a great alternative even for those who are gluten intolerant. Do you think that without flour and white sugar you cannot create funny, super healthy sweets? and here you are wrong.

The brownie that I propose here is loaded with nutrients rich in antioxidants, good fats and protein source and there’s more! It doesn’t spike sugars in your blood.  The important fact for all pregnant women who suffer sweets cravings very often and expose their self to a risk of developing gestational diabetes, a disease that affects 15-20% of pregnant women. With this brownie you can sin without consequences for your weight and health. I used almond flour, coconut oil and coconut sugar rich in potassium and zinc which has a glycemic index of 35 compared to white sugar that has 70. The procedure is very simple, a few steps even the ingredients are few, and because of that, they must be of the highest quality-bio.
