When I offered my friend one of these decadent chocolatey delights, she asked “what’s in them?!” While there is nothing that rhymes with ‘do ya wanna?’, there are some surprising ingredients that packs a medicinal punch and may improve your chances of conceiving. These brownies are gluten-free, dairy-free and use natural sweeteners that increases your odds of conceiving according to some basic principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory. In fact, it’s best to eat these Baby-Makin’ brownies warm since our digestive system works best with cooked foods that are slightly sweet! Other health benefits associated with specific ingredients include:
Adzuki Beans – an easy-to-digest legume option packed-full of antioxidants that improve egg and sperm quality (black beans can also be used)
Nuts (e.g. pecans) – a source of minerals, like zinc and selenium, vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids that pack a fertility punch
Flaxseeds – an excellent source of fibre in addition to its hormone balancing benefits that helps keep you regular and in the mood for some baby-makin’!
Plus, these are super easy to make and uses a minimal number of dishes – my kind of baking! Even my picky-eater sister thought these Baby-Makin’ brownies were great – even for a mother who already has 3 kids!
