Rule Breaker Brownies and Blondies are Full of Beans

3

Years ago, a woman named Nancy reached out to me about her fledgling company called Pure Genius. She had developed her own line of healthier chickpea blondies and brownies. Fast forward four or five years, and her little company has evolved with a new name, new look, and new flavors. You might know them now as Rule Breaker Brownies and Blondies.

Tasting Notes for Rule Breaker Brownies & Blondies

In the beginning, Nancy’s snack-worth desserts were big, thick squares. Today, she bakes them up as cookies, with the same thick, soft, and tender texture. Each variety is also low in added sugars and made in a certified gluten-free and allergy-friendly bakery. Nancy has also added a couple new blondie flavors and bite-sized bags since our last update.

These are more like a sweet snack than an indulgent dessert. But they hit the spot with afternoon tea when cravings strike. I haven’t tried them since they changed from a bar format to a cookie format, but the ingredients look similar.

  1. I’m always a little wary about plant substitutes trying to take the place of other things (like soy cheese), but I’ll admit, they nailed the look of brownies! Those look great!

  2. I tried some samples of these at a VegFest and was a fan! Especially of the Blondie packed with chocolate chunks. I loved how fudgy they are! Also a big fan of their bright colourful branding, so cute!
