Chocolate Brownies

September 14, 2015

Hey Guys!

Can we just take a moment and appreciate this post title. Because you already know I healthy reconditioned these bad boys.

I have FINALLY mastered my Chocolate Brownies. I had to tweak them a couple times to bring the calorie count down and protein up without sacrificing any flavour.

I am so happy I can finally share this yummy treat with you!

As always I had my family and boyfriend be my sample bunnies. They all really enjoyed this one.

What You Need

2 Cans of Black Beans - Drained
2/3 Cup of Egg Whites
1 Cup Cocoa Powder
20 Pitted Dates
1/3 Cup No Sugar Added Maple Syrup ( Honey or Agave is fine)
3 scoops of Chocolate Flavoured Protein
1 Cup of NO Sugar added Apple Sauce

This is optional but you can add 1 cup of dark chocolate chips to add some sweetness. I suggest trying the recipe out as is, and if you feel the need to add the chocolate do so after. I feel it is sweet enough, but to each their own. :)

What You Do
Add ALL the ingredients in a blender. Blend on high for about 5 mins. You want to make sure all the beans are well blended. The mixture should look like chocolate cake batter when its ready.

Spray or grease up a Cake Pan. Set the oven to 350F and bake for 20-30 minutes. Allow to cool down and ENJOY!

The nutritional chart reflects the cake pan I used, and EXACT ingredients shown above.

Different ingredient brands might advertise a slight different calorie count, BUT its just what my measurements came out to. If you would like specific brands please let me know and I will update the post.



Snack Time: Mango Protein Pudding

September 10, 2015

Hello My Loves!

I've been really watching my protein intake lately/trying to keep the sugar cravings under control. Two of my favourite new pass times. Insert sarcasm here.

I have this bad habit of snacking while I am cooking dinner. The problem is, when I start cooking dinner is when I should be having dinner.

Anyhow yesterday I decided to fix myself a nice snack prior to cooking to avoid nibbling and munching on unhealthy snacks. ( Crackers, a slice of cheese, more crackers, crackers with cheese, Two different types of cheeses layered. A cracker sandwich. WHAT WE HAVE snacks)

I was SO proud of myself. I wanted to have something sweet, low in fat and high in protein. And that is how my super yummy and healthy Mango Protein Pudding was born :)

What you Need.
1 Mango peeled and chopped.
2/3 cup of Greek Yogurt - look for the brand with the least amount of sugar! You're already sweet enough.
1/2 Scoop of Vanilla or Unflavoured Protein . You can omit the protein powder if your not worried about you gains.

Put all ingredients into a blender. Blend and enjoy :)

Of course you can try this recipe with different fruits and even protein flavours!
