BLISS BROWNIES // SWEET LAUREL X SAKARA

Bliss Brownies

We recently had the opportunity to try Sakara’s bestselling Metabolism Super Powder and were so blown away by the taste and quality of ingredients that we knew we had to create a recipe to feature it. You know we love our brownies, so what better than a magical Bliss Brownie that is decadent AND metabolism-boosting. This plant-rich, vegan dessert revs your metabolism and eases bloat with each bite. It’s incredibly creamy and moist—yet contains zero refined sugar, is completely plant-based and gluten-free, plus it includes a suite of antioxidants and Ayurvedic herbs thanks to Metabolism Super Powder. How dreamy is that?

This feel-good alternative to holiday baking is already a staple in our home. Some of you may have seen this brownie make a special appearance at our cake shop.. it was such a hit during it’s limited-edition release and we’re thrilled to share the recipe with you today. Happy Baking! xoxo

p.s. We’ve included TWO versions of this recipe for you! A simple, classic Bliss Brownie, and a version that has a few more bells and whistles. We can’t wait to see which one you make!
