LONGEVITY BROWNIES



Contributor: Brianna Beard
A decadent brownie recipe created by Briana Beard blends heart-opening Cacao with ultra-beautifying and balancing He Shou Wu for an absolutely delicious treat. To top it off, she uses almond flour to replace all-purpose flour in this gluten-free, vegan recipe.

These fudgey, vegan, gluten-free chocolate brownies are enhanced with a beautiful little herb known as He Shou Wu, or Fo-Ti. This herb is renowned as the root of longevity. It has been beloved since ancient times and is reputed and known for treating hair loss, hardening of the arteries and neurodegenerative diseases.* Traditionally, it’s also revered as a spiritual herb, known amongst monks and healers to boost spiritual potency. It has been documented that use of this herb may help to enhance hair color and even bring back color to those that are turning grey.  

These are pretty rich and decadent brownies so one batch goes a long way. I love these in the morning with hot cup of tea, in the afternoon with a shot of espresso or basically any time of day I'm craving something sweet. The best part about satisfying that sweet tooth with these brownies is that you are really fueling your body and mind with very medicinal and healing ingredients!  

I love a crunch, so I have cacao nibs in the recipe.  If you can't get the nibs then add some extra almonds at the end instead and you'll achieve that same delicious texture.
