These Keto / low carb brownies are high in protein, healthy, & contain zero sugar or dairy. They're 'stress reducing' because of the mushroom powerhouse - REISHI. Combined with healthy fats and the antioxidant power of cacao, these brownies pack a nutritional punch that are perfect for a relaxing healthy snack or pre-bed dessert.
Reishi has the ability to revitalize the entire body. Reishi is nothing new to the world – it’s been used in traditional Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years. In the Western world, people are just now starting to use Reishi to help enhance their sleep, cope with stress, and cure seasonal allergies.
