It's not a diet. It's a lifestyle change.
If you haven’t tried black bean brownies yet, you’re missing out big time. They’re amazing and healthy – the beans provide a ton of fiber. They’re incredibly easy to make as well.
1 can (540ml) of black beans, drained and rinsed WELL – you do not want your brownies to taste “beany”
3 eggs or 6 egg whites (1 large egg white is about 2 tbsp if you’re using carton liquid egg whites)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup pumpkin purée, or applesauce, or mashed banana
1/4 cup agave nectar
2 tbsp peanut butter (I use maranthana brand, crunchy with a bit of sea salt.)
1 tsp instant coffee
1/4 cup enjoy life mini chocolate chips
Peanut Butter Crumble:
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tbsp agave
1 tsp coconut oil
Preheat your oven to 350.
Add all ingredients for your brownies except chocolate chips into a food processor and process until smooth.
Once mixture is smooth, mix chocolate chips in.
Spray a 9×9 baking dish with non stick spray. Pour batter into baking dish and set aside.
In a small saucepan add peanut butter, agave and oil. Heat to med-high heat and stir peanut butter until it begins to form a ball. You should now be able to crumble this mixture over your brownies (this happened by accident for me, I was trying to make it more smooth, but this ended up happening and I loved it)
Bake for 30-35. A toothpick should come out clean when inserted into the center.
Cool and refrigerate overnight. These brownies do NOT taste good hot/warm.
