Hale & Hearty Rich Chocolate Brownie Mix - All Ingreds

The Verdict

We made these Gluten Free Organic American style chocolate brownies one wet afternoon during the school holidays.

The instructions were very easy to follow. We substituted some of the required ingredients with allergy friendly alternatives which suited our family’s allergy requirements. We replaced the milk with Lactofree Milk and the butter with Pure Dairy Free Sunflower Spread, we also had to add eggs to the mix.

The mixture made 18 reasonable sized chocolate brownies.

Plate of Hale & Hearty Chocolate Brownies

The kitchen was filled with a really appetizing aroma whilst these brownies cooked and we couldn’t wait to try them, they tasted delicious whilst warm but were still great once cooled. They were chewy and had a really rich chocolatey flavour, there were creamy bits which had a really silky smooth texture where the chocolate chunks had melted. The brownies managed to last 3 days before we had eaten them all and they were still very moist on the third day.

The girls and I absolutely loved the brownies but my husband wasn’t so keen on the texture and said that “it was like eating a wet sponge” but he also said that “he couldn’t fault the flavour“.

I would definitely buy this again and I thought that it was good value for 18 brownies.
