Who wants some brownies? I do! I do!



Recommended Posts

Like most girls I know, chocolate, especially chocolate Desserts are a weakness. I am no exception. My Aunt is a chocolatier and all my life chocolate was the masterpiece at all holidays, birthdays, celebrations and even at a few memorials. The answer to any of life's problems has always been "chocolate!" Followed by "wine!"

I am going to make this recipe and wanted to share it with you all. Hope it makes someone very happy!

These delightful flourless brownies can satisfy your chocolate craving with only 3 grams of carbs per serving.

    Delicious fudgy and healthy brownies made with black Beans and avocados. Sounds weird, tastes awesome! Gluten free and vegan.
    INGREDIENTS
    • 1 large flax egg
    • 1 - 15oz can low sodium black Beans, rinsed and drained
    • 1/2 medium to large ripe avocado
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
    • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips, plus 2 tablespoons for sprinkling

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 8×8 inch baking pan.
    2. Place flax egg, black bean, avocado, vanilla, and brown sugar and process in a food processor until smooth. Add in cocoa powder, coconut oil, baking soda, and baking powder and process again until smooth. Batter will be thick. If batter is way too thick and won't process, you can add in a tablespoon or two of almond milk. This batter needs to be very thick in order to produce fudgy brownies. Fold in chocolate chip or sprinkle onto batter then transfer to prepared pan and use a spatula to spread evenly to sides. Sprinkle top of batter with 2 tablespoons of remaining chocolate chips.< /li>
    3. Bake for 22-30 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out somewhat clean. We don't want these to dry out, but we also don't want them completely raw either! The top of the batter should be completely set and no longer jiggle. Cool pan completely on wire rack then cut into 12 bars.
    NOTES
    You may be able to sub the brown sugar for honey, agave or maple Syrup. I would reduce to 1/3 cup though.

    The brownies are best went made in a food processor so that beans can blend together better.

    The brownies are best when served at room temperature or cold. They should be stored in the fridge. I love eating mine chilled.

    You can also freeze these and thaw out for an easy treat.

    I like these. http://www.eatmeguiltfree.com/products/chocolate-brownie-12-pack-box

    Sweets aren't really a thing and chocolate isn't either but when you get tired of Protein shake and Quest bars they are a nice change of pace. I like that that they are portion controlled.

        I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
        I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

        slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
        hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

          Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
