Looking to indulge in dessert without feeling guilty? Pure Genius Brownies are less than 200 calories each, packed with fiber and protein, and are made with 40 percent non-GMO chickpeas – now that’s pure genius! These gluten-free brownies are sweetened with maple syrup, cocoa, and vegan chocolate. They are moist, soft, and fudge-like in texture, leaving no beany aftertaste. Try the Deep Chocolate Brownie when you’re having a major chocolate craving or Chocolate Chunk Brownie when your taste buds are begging for sweetness. Pure Genius Brownies are available at a variety of Whole Foods locations, natural grocery stores, and online through Amazon. To find a location near you, visit
