4 Delectable Gluten Free CBD Brownie Recipes

4 Delectable Gluten Free CBD Brownie Recipes
Share:

For those trying to make dietary, health, and nutritional changes, one of the first things to go is sweets. Sweets are further pushed out of the equation for those who are attempting a gluten free lifestyle. Because many sweets are made with flour, including one of our favorites, brownies, many desserts are off the menu for millions.

Thankfully, the gluten free industry has evolved, and there are some pretty delicious brownie recipes out there for those avoiding this protein. However, for those on a serious health bend, even taking the gluten out of the brownie won’t make it healthy enough. That’s where Joy Organics CBD comes in! Adding CBD to these sweet treats can turn dessert into an experience good for both your taste buds and your overall well-being.

If you are ready to whip up some chocolatey, gluten free magic this weekend, you can further support a healthy digestive system by adding in some Joy Organics CBD Tinctures to the frosting. Here are some delectable gluten free brownie recipes with CBD frosting that the whole family can enjoy!

Why Are People Going Gluten Free?

gluten free

Walking around the grocery store these days, you may be scratching your head, wondering why so many people have opted to go gluten free. That confusion is further enhanced by the fact that our great grandparents looked at grain as a staple in their diet. So, what has caused so many people to ditch gluten?

Gluten is a protein that has traditionally proven to be hard for the typical body to digest. Since the industrial revolution, it has gotten even more difficult. Most of the gluten-laden products you find in stores have been grown and treated with genetically modified organisms and pesticides. Since 1990, when current food practices started to gain momentum, gluten sensitivity has risen 500%!

While just 1% of the population suffers from Celiac Disease, up to 45% of people suffer from some form of gluten sensitivity. That means when they consume gluten, they may experience uncomfortable digestive issues. These statistics make gluten one of the top allergens for the human race and is the reason why all Joy Organics products are 100% gluten free.

Now that you understand the reasoning behind the recent gluten-free craze, it’s time to start baking!

Cool Mint Cream Brownie

Enjoying this recipe is like a York Peppermint Patty exploded in your mouth! The creamy texture is due to the mint-buttercream filling. While this recipe calls for you to bake Joy Organics Tranquil Mint CBD Tinctures into the filling for flavor, heating up the oil can damage some of the cannabinoids in the formula. The recipe calls for you to bake the brownies at 350° F. While the boiling point of CBD is unknown, scientists predict that THC will boil off around 157° C (314° F). If CBD falls into the same category, which hasn’t been scientifically proven, then there is a risk of losing some of the potential benefits. To ensure you gain all the benefits of CBD while enjoying these brownies, add a few extra drops to the frosting to replenish your burst of CBD goodness! The frosting only gets heated up by your taste buds!
