Chocolate, Hazelnut and Cherry Brownies

The Dawn Foods Vegan Range really is incredible! I have been playing with a good selection of their products and have made a good few recipes including doughnuts, brownies and all of the trimmings. This one I’m giving you today topped it as the favourite for me being a total chocolate lover. The brownie mix is so versatile and allows you to cook the brownie just to your liking with plenty of opportunities to add and change up the flavourings. I will be using more Dawn Foods products in the future for sure!

In 2021, where I believe that the vegan / plant-based market is still very much at the beginning of the growth that we are going to see products like this are really going to be leading the way in terms of ease of use for the customer. When you can produce results like this without the use of animal products it is getting clearer to see that the need for them is getting smaller and smaller and it can have such a huge impact.
