Rule Breaker Snacks will be featured on the upcoming episode of Shark Tank and they’re a miracle for those who have a sweet tooth.
They are called Rule Breaker Snacks because they are everything a brownie isn’t supposed to be.
Rule Breaker Snacks are vegan, plant-based brownies and blondies. Not only are they healthy, but they are also allergy-friendly and contain no wheat, tree nuts, peanuts, dairy, eggs, soy, fish, or shellfish.
As per the snack’s website, “Rule Breaker Snacks break all the rules (no flour! no eggs! no butter!). Chickpeas (that’s right, beans) are the first ingredient. But our soft-baked treats are so chewy and delicious, you’d never know.”
The site features four flavors of brownies and blondies including Mint Chocolate Brownie, Birthday Cake, Deep Chocolate Brownie, and Chocolate Chunk Blondie.
How Rule Breaker Snacks got started
Rule Breaker Snacks founder Nancy Kalish hails from Brooklyn, New York.
Nancy explains on the site that like her Rule Breaker Snacks, she is a contradiction.
“As a former health journalist and certified health coach, I had learned exactly how to eat healthy. Trouble is, I’ve always had a very unhealthy sweet tooth (we’re talking dessert for breakfast),” Nancy confesses.
She wanted to merge her two passions to satisfy her sweet tooth in a healthy way.
“I had read about brownies made from black beans on the internet. And I thought, okay, beans are healthy. So I whipped some up. Well, those first black bean brownies were awful–they tasted like beans, they even smelled like beans. But they had that luscious brownie texture,” she explains. “So I kept at it, tweaking my recipe, switched to chickpeas, and I ate a LOT of brownies. Finally, after a year, I had created the perfect recipe with no beany taste.”
And that is how Rule Breaker Snacks came to be.
