Walnuts provide an unusually high level of Vitamin E, integral for skin conditioning and luminosity as well as for cardiovascualr health. The heart problems that so many Americans eating a typical diet experience can actually be mitigated by eating walnuts, and other Vitamin E rich foods. Further, walnuts are antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, deliver over 90% of your daily needs for Omega-3, and are high in minerals like copper, magnesium, calcium, and manganese. These minerals keep your hair from graying, strengthen your bones and relax your muscles. Minerals like these are best when they are ingested through whole foods and are essential to good, long term health.
Dates in this recipe keep these brownies sugarless, but they also provide copper, potassium, and iron. Dates are also great for their antioxidant benefits and their fiber! Fiber is very esential to smooth digestive function. After a protien rich holiday meal, fiber can help pass the material through the system.
Lastly, cacao is a great anti-depressant, so when the going gets tough, these Raw Brownie Bites get going! Enjoy!
