    What Makes It Awesome

    Brownies and IBS are my achilles heel {sorry, sorry, I know, TMI}. So when I heard about a gluten-free, grain-free, vegan brownie bakery, I was all ears. Enter, Blackbird Bakery. This New Friends Colony based bakery started recently, and describe themselves as "baked indulgences for the health-conscious". The only dessert I found while browsing through their Instagram page {@blackbirdbakeryindia} was brownies- vegan and grain-free, in all their glory. They currently offer brownies in four iterations- Classic Walnut, Beetroot, Peanut butter millet, and Sweet potato. They are all gluten-free; and can also be vegan, low GI, and paleo based on what you order. I ordered the peanut butter and classic walnut brownie for a dinner at my house, and my friends and I loved them. I'm always skeptical about how "healthy" brownies will turn out because I've tried a bunch of them, and they're usually super dry with an almost-cardboard-like texture. Blackbird brownies on the other hand? Gooey and delicious. Depending on the brownie, they use millet {ragi}, cacao powder, almond flour, nut butter etc- all super healthy ingredients- while managing to make the brownie ACTUALLY taste like a brownie. The peanut butter brownie was most definitely my favourite- not too sweet, the right amount of peanut butter, and perfectly moist. Also, brownie points {pun intended} for their small-batch, made to order approach.

    What Could Be Better?

    They currently only deliver in South and South East Delhi, but you can get them picked up from New Friends. They're also available at Health Basket in DefCol.

    What's My Pro Tip?

    A single brownie costs somewhere between INR 200 to 220. They also offer a discount of 10% for an order of four or more brownies.
