Vegan Deluxe Chocolate Brownies with Zulka Morena Pure Cane Sugar

It's brownie time again! We thought we would give these brownies the celebrity treatment with some sparkly holographic background paper! 

When we were contacted by Zulka to review Zulka Morena Pure Cane Sugar* we were instantly excited and knew we had to try it in one of our favorite types of desserts: brownies! 

Zulka Morena Pure Cane Sugar is a cup-for-cup replacement for white granulated sugar. Among the many benefits of this sugar is the fact that it is Non-GMO Project verified - something that is important to us as people who care about the environment and the food we eat. In addition to this, Zulka is unrefined and made from freshly-harvested sugar cane - we can honestly say that it tastes better than white (processed) granulated sugar. And because Zulka is unrefined, it's a vegan product. It was perfect in these brownies, they turned out just as fluffy, sweet and yummy-yum-yummy as always! We can't wait to try Zulka in some of our other favorite recipes. Let us know if you have tried Zulka in the comments!
