NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — There’s so much that’s just so right about freshly-baked brownies, it’s an instant feel-good attitude adjuster.  For years, though, if we wanted to make good-for-you brownies, we had to do it completely from scratch – there were no box mixes on shelves that were even close to being nutritious.

Times have changed, y’all.  In today’s episode of FUELED, we’re showcasing three good-for-you brownie mixes that you can find on shelves right now.  All are low carb, gluten-free, and made with no artificial sweeteners or colors.

Don’t worry, we’ve done the hard work for you – the taste testing and feedback – along with the support of our Eat Fit intern Grace Mobley.  And a huge thank-you to Grace for baking and styling this segment, too.


All of the following brownie mixes are gluten-free and grain-free with no added sugar, and labeled as keto, or keto-friendly as well.
