Shop Local: Elements for Life

You may have heard of Elements for Life, a local company that makes delicious, nutritious raw chocolate 🍫

They only use high-quality ingredients, which are pesticide-free. Many of them are also organic! They also source from lots of small-scale farmers co-operatives to ensure that their ingredients are fairly traded which is so important. 

All of their packaging is also used from recycled material ♻️ or re-used from other sources - amazing! 

We were recently sent a couple of their Yummy Scrummy Raw Chocolate Brownies to try out. 

They're free from refined sugar, dairy, gluten, soya and GMO-free. What do they contain you ask? A mix of raw cacao butter, powder & nibs, dates, walnuts, raisins, goji berries, brazil nuts and natural fruit extracts. 

Cacao is different to cocoa and is basically an unrefined version of it. It's got 40x the antioxidants of blueberries, the highest plant-based source of iron, full of magnesium for a healthy heart and brain, has more calcium in it than cows milk and is a natural mood elevator and anti-depressant. 

These brownies are made using the finest Peruvian Criollo Raw Cacao, renowned for its smooth chocolate richness. 

So, how do they taste? Very different to traditional fluffy brownies - completely different. If you're looking for an exact replica of one of those types of brownies but full of goodness, you probably won't find one. If you do, please let me know 😉

These are delicious. I love the crunchy element of the goji berries on top. They are an excellent on-the-go snack. Elements for Life has even been awarded a double Gold Award in the Taste of The West Awards - so clearly we're not the only ones that think that they're so good. 

Thanks Elements for Life for sending us these brownies! We loved them. If you would like to purchase online, please visit their website here. Enjoy!
