The Graze Brownie

I'm currently sat in bed feeling unwell and miserable after a horrible exam this morning and wishing I had something chocolatey to cheer me up. The joys of trying to be healthy! I can't say avocado or almonds give me the same feelings of happiness as chocolate does.

But thinking about the battle between healthy eating/joy from chocolate got me thinking about how good the best of both worlds is. I've seen loads of blog posts and recipes making chocolatey treats with substitute ingredients recently (like avocado instead of butter) but I am yet to try anything out. I have, however, had a very good brownie recently which is not hugely unhealthy, only 110 calories and satisfies chocolate cravings. 

It was in my Graze box on Friday and I was thrilled when I saw it after it was delivered to me.

I've spoken before about how much I love Graze boxes (click here to read more) and I think I had the Graze brownie in my first ever box.

It comes in three little slices but is quite rich and delivers a good hit of chocolate. Its topped with chopped nuts and feels like a really naughty treat but is only 110 calories for the punnet. It was just as good as I remembered.

If you have Graze boxes then add this to your send soon list - you will not regret it. If you don't have them then maybe this will convince you to give it a go?

Mmmm brownie...


  1. Aww, sorry about your exam but chin up at least it's over :)!
    I'm having the exact same struggle trying to combine healthy and soul food but theses brownies do look delicious. I would totally order the graze box but I'm only here for another month so it wouldn't be worth it.
    Hope the chocolate cheered you up a bit :)
    Enjoy your exam-free summer!!

    1. Thank you :) yeah I guess I have a four month summer to enjoy with no exams now! It is tricky, I just wish chocolate was super healthy, it would make life so much easier! xx
