I recently received some samples of the new Brownie Cakes. I’m pretty impressed with these. They are not super-desserty, but really designed to be a “lunch box” sort of treat. Slightly sweet, with a moderate chocolatey flavor, these treats provide a fun and enjoyable dessert without a bunch of guilt (at least compared to my brownies). Each box has 4 packs of 2 brownies a piece.
I taste a little flavor from oats, and a very slight flavor from garbanzo/fava flours (but I am very aware of bean flours). The ingredients come from natural sources, and are peanut/tree nut-free, milk-free, egg-free, and certified gluten-free with the Gluten-Free Certification Organization. Each brownie has 120 calories, 11 grams of sugar, 4 g fat, 2 g protein, and 2 g fiber.
They are definitely approved by Corice, who had a hard time watching me take pictures of them.
Lucy’s also has new Snack ‘n Go Packs of their cookies. Each little pack has 3 cookies in it, and each box has 6 packs. These are also great for lunches. The cookies, too, are peanut/tree nut-free, milk-free, egg-free, and certified gluten-free. The oats help provide a bit of fiber in the cookies. If you’re like me, then this is proof that you can eat them more often. 🙂
