Serious??!! Yes I am amazing

I have been kind of chillin on tracking my food... It may bite me in the ass but I feel less obsessed and more relaxed ... I have not stepped on a scale... tomorrow for sure 

I made some black bean brownies
1 can of black beans, drained well
1 egg
100g (3 scoops) of chocolate flavored protein powder
2 Tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa
4 Tablespoons equivalent of sugar (I used the Stevia baking blend)
1 teaspoon coffee granules
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon oil
1 pinch salt
chocolate chips and nuts, to taste
(1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×9 baking dish.
(2) Mash the beans and beat in the egg. Add the other ingredients except the chocolate chips and nuts and beat until soupy and thick. Alternatively, blend all the ingredients in a blender.
(3) Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.
(4) Pour mixture into the baking dish. If the ingredients were beated, stick in the oven for 15 minutes, until the top layer of the brownies is still slightly wet. If blended, pop it in for 10 minutes, until the top layer of the brownies is slightly wet. Baking times will vary depending on how much moisture is left in the brownies.
(5) Let cool for at least 10 minutes, then cut into 16 squares.

  1. Thank you so much for posting this recipe, they look amazing and I was looking for something to help me get through superbowl sunday. I am going to make these tonight.

  2. My mouth is watering ... dang those look good. I wouldn't be able to control myself so that recipe will have to be filed away for when I have more self control.
    Not counting calories is very freeing.
