Two years ago, while attending the GFAFExpo here in New Jersey, I came across a brand called Pure Genius. After sampling their products, it immediately stood out. Aside from being completely free of the top 8 allergens – wheat/gluten, dairy, egg, soy, peanut, tree nuts, shellfish and fish, this company takes pride in making gluten free brownies and blondies using chickpeas.
I know what you’re thinking. Chickpeas? Dessert? Well, why not! You see, even before I found out about the kids’ food allergies, our family is already a big fan of Bean Brownies. It is a healthier snack alternative especially for Child#2 and #4 who are not big fans of vegetables. For Child#3, it is a tasty and tricky way of adding more protein to his diet. He’s my almost vegetarian one.
So, when I got the chance to bring some home, I immediately asked the kids’ opinions about Pure Genius. With just one bite, I saw right away that it is a winner.
- The texture is close to a fudge brownie.
- There’s no trace of “bean” smell or taste.
- Even though it is completely gluten free, it has a really smooth and creamy consistency that almost melts in your mouth. Yup! Nothing grainy.
- It is packed with vanilla or chocolate flavor with a hint of sweetness. No unnecessary sugar rush on this one.
- One bar is less than 200 calories.
- Loaded with fiber and protein, this is a complete treat not only on the taste buds but for the whole body as well.
- Certified gluten free and non-GMO project verified.
- Perfect for those in a Vegan diet as well.
With all the good things about it, there’s no question why they have won the Nexty Award for Best New Dessert at the Expo East 2016 in Baltimore.
