No Bake Microbiotic Brownies

No Bake Microbiotic Brownies

In this recipe, I add Udo’s Super 8 capsules to a fabulous treat that my whole family devours. This way, I can be sure they are getting a great supply of gut-friendly allies.

We store these brownies in the freezer to preserve the integrity of the live microbiotics. There are 8 billion live bacteria in a single capsule of Udo’s Super 8s, including eight different helpful strains.

You’d need to eat a keg of natural yoghurt to get the same amount of good bacteria that’s in one capsule of Super 8! And because Udo’s products are live, with no additives or sugars, I feel safe in the knowledge I’m nourishing my little goslings.

Recipe Supplied by Susan Jane White


2 cups pecans or walnuts
1 teaspoon Udo’s Choice Infant Blend, or 2 capsules Udo’s Choice Super 8 Microbiotics
9-12 medjool dates (regular dates won’t work) Good pinch of sea salt flakes
6-8 tablespoons cacao or cocoa powder


  1. Using a food processor, pulse the nuts until they are crumbly.
  2. Add each medjool date down the food processor chute, one by one, while the motor is still running. It’s important to bin the stones first, and to check for black dust. If you find that dreaded powdery black stuff, stop the motor, discard the date and any dates it happened to socialise with, then wash your hands thoroughly and proceed as usual. Black dust is a sign of plant mould and occurs with one in every sixty medjools in my experience. Gah!
  3. When all the medjools have been added, spoon in the cacao or cocoa powder. A generous pinch of sea salt flakes is all that’s required now. Give it one last blast in the food processor. Pinch the brownie ‘dough’ together with your fingertips. It should stick like gum.
  4. Sprinkle Udo’s Choice Microbiotics on top, and remove the dough with your hands. Squash it into a pliable dough, and shape into a pre-lined loaf tin. I use baking parchment to prevent sticking.
  5. Press down firmly with your fingers and freeze. After 1 hour, remove from the freezer, chop into bite sized brownies, and return to the freezer. I store them in a large glass mason jar or a handy freezer bag. This is where they will live until beckoned. The idea is to eat them straight from frozen. You’ll soon understand why.

Makes a lavish snack, which is what all snacks should be.
