Lucuma, also called the Incas Gold, is an Andean fruit with a unique flavor that is often used as a sweetener. It provides good amounts of fiber, as well as anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and cardio-protective actions. Coconut, on the other hand, promotes a healthy heart by balancing cholesterol levels and it is also loaded with dietary fiber and minerals. This delicious raw brownie will satisfy your sweet tooth in a healthy way, while cutting down processed sugar cravings between meals.
