Can a chocolate brownie be good for you?

Only if it’s a NuMe low carb, gluten-free, decadently delicious treat.

Everyone loves a decadent chocolatey treat and there are few things that compare to a sticky brownie oozing with flavour. Each bite leaves you feeling blissful thanks to the rush of endorphins that release with this sensory experience. That’s what happens when your body experiences delicious food and that’s exactly what you can expect when you eat our NuMe range of “Not So Naughty” gluten-free baking products.

A new premium range, there is a deliciously decadent Chocolate and Pecan Nut mix for brownies and muffins. Sugar-free, low carb, with no artificial additives, these premixes are incredibly easy to bake. Moist, nutty in flavour, rich, yet not too sweat – this is guilt-free eating at its best!

Favouring a less is more approach to our recipes ensures all the NuMe products hero the natural flavours of the nutritious ingredients used. Blending ground pecan nuts, with sunflower flour, cocoa, sugar-free chocolate and xylitol makes this a healthy indulgence; truly yummy food that’s not at the expense of your wellbeing.

For many their allergies and food sensitivities dictate what they can and can’t eat. In the end meals tend to feel like a disappointing compromise; boring and bland dishes that don’t measure up. Recognising the challenges of this audience, and aware that many people without allergies are also consciously looking for products that deliver convenience, health and great taste in every calorie they consume – drove us to develop food solutions.

Behind all product and recipe development at the company, Petzer is an intuitive serial innovator who is dedicated to excellence. She has an uncompromising commitment to quality and says, “We strive to provide products that fill a gap in the market – solutions that are taste-centric but never at the expense of health. When it comes to the NuMe range – our products have bold flavours bursting with deliciousness – providing those who are gluten intolerant with variety and choice.”

Using the finest quality ingredients, the nourishing NuMe baking products have been described as the crème de la crème of low-carb gluten-free eating but more than that – they are exceptionally high in protein and dietary fibre. They make great lunch box fillers or a healthy snack on the run.

Our baking range is naturally low carb food. We don’t pump in unnecessary ingredients just so that we can make a low-carb claim. There are no unnecessary contaminants in our products, which all support clean living and add quality to life. There’s nothing synthetic about our ingredients – no artificial additives – only pure, wholesome, natural goodness.

Both variants are incredibly easy to bake and are done in just 15 mins; leave them in the oven for too long and they will dry out.  The brownies can be served with cream and melted dark chocolate, while the muffins can be iced and decorated or simply dribbled with dark chocolate and sprinkled with toppings of your choice.

The versatility of the products means they are as adaptable. Add nuts to the muffins, or transform the brownie mix into a delicious layer cake. For the home cook keen to experiment, the Not So Naughty products will provide hours of fun in the kitchen.

Widely accessible – these products are stocked at Dischem nationwide, as well as Food Lovers Market and specific Spar and Pick ‘n Pay outlets.  Health shops like Jacksons also stock the range as do some high end delicatessens and grocers. The baking premixes sell from R55 – R60 a box.
