Protein Brownies!

YES! I’ve been searching high and low for a healthy brownie recipe to satisfy my sweet tooth…because it is out of control! I really like this recipe from bodybuilding.com

Make sure you prepare yourself to not be in the mindset that you’ll be sinking your teeth into a gooey fudge brownie full of delicious butters and fats…because life just isn’t fair like that! However these are guilt free and in my opinion…delicious! They will be a little bit dry but I am still playing with it to see if I can moisten it up a bit!

Ingredients

1 cup of liquid egg whites
1 can (200g) of unsalted cooked black beans (Don’t worry you can’t taste beans!)
3/4 cup of Iso 100 gourmet chocolate protein powder (or whatever you prefer)
1/4 cup of cocoa
1/4 cup of agave syrup, date syrup, or honey                                                                                                                                                                         3 tbsp coconut flour
5 tbsp cottage cheese
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1-3 tbsp of peanut butter (optional but really nice)

**Add organic dark chocolate chips for added amazingness!!**

Blend everything together and pour into a 9×9 brownie pan. Make sure to spray with a non stick spray. I also like to sprinkle the pan with flour just to be sure they won’t stick and waste all the delicious brownie! Bake at 320 for 30-45 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

ENJOY!!!!!!
