Low Carb Chocolate Fudge Avocado Brownies

Low Carb Chocolate Fudge Avocado Brownies

Hey hey all! Soooooo I have finally found my cooking mojo! I lost it there for a bit, but I’m back in action and loving it. Today I decided to make a recipe for my “Find Your Balance” Community members who are doing an intermittent fasting challenge. Many of them are struggling to eat enough fat in their last meal, so I thought this would be a great healthy dessert option for their last meal. These low carb chocolate avocado brownies are low in sugar and extremely high in fiber. So much bang for your buck in every bite, and soooooo yummy! Ok, Lets get down to business now… Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Gather all ingredients, a food processor or blender, spoon, an 8 x 8in or 9 x 9in baking dish. Add the raw almonds to the food processor/blender and process until a flour like texture. If you have almond flour, skip this step obviously.  Next, add all ingredients in the blender, except the stevia, cocoa powder, and baking soda. Blend well until the avocado mixture is smooth. Then add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. After spraying your baking dish with cooking spray, pour in the chocolate avocado brownie batter. Smooth batter to a level amount and then bake on 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes. While the low carb chocolate fudge avocado brownies are baking, make the peanut butter protein icing. Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix well with a spoon. If desired, blend in a blender. Remove brownies from oven after 18 minutes and let cool for at least 10 minutes...
Gluten Free Banana Nut Protein Balls

Gluten Free Banana Nut Protein Balls

I am obsessed with the banana  nut flavor of the Quest bars, but  absolutely hate spending close to $3 for just one bar! I know many people love quest bars, but I’m not sure if everyone knows that not all flavors are created equal. By this, I mean that not all flavors are truly healthy. Many of the flavors contain a high amount of sugar/sugar alcohol, therefore make sure to read the label before purchasing. These bars, like many others, are expensive as well. Making homemade protein treats is not only a way to ensure you are eating healthy treats, but you will save a ton of money in the long run. I have experimented with a few different flavor combinations for protein balls, but this was my first attempt at a banana nut flavor. I always take my “projects” to work for my co-workers to taste test, and this protein ball recipe got rave reviews!!! Gather all ingredients, a large bowl, a large spoon, a food processor, and measuring cups. First, place the almonds into the food processor and grind up until the almonds are in tiny bite size pieces. Make sure not to grind up too much, because it will quickly turn from powder into a nut butter. Pour the ground up almonds into  a bowl and set aside for later.   Drain the chick peas and rinse with water. Add all ingredients (except almonds) for the gluten free banana nut protein balls into the food processor and blend well. Make sure to scrape the sides of the processor to ensure all ingredients are mixed well. The...
Healthy Peanut Butter Banana No-Bake Cookies

Healthy Peanut Butter Banana No-Bake Cookies

Anyone else obsessed with peanut butter and chocolate? I am not typically a cookie fan, but no-bakes are a totally different story! I looooooove no-bake cookies, but they are just terrible for the waistline. I decided to make my own concoction, as always, and this is what I came up with: Pour almond milk into a saucepan. Add cocoa powder, mashed bananas, and peanut butter. Put the stove on low heat and continue stirring and mashing up the mixture until well blended. It is okay if you still see small chunks of banana. Add the coconut oil, oats, flaxseed, and stevia to the saucepan. Remove from the heat and mix well. Add the protein powder and mix well. The mixture should be very thick. Line a cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper. Scoop a large spoonful of the cookie mixture and form in the shape of a cookie with your hands. Place the cookie on the parchment paper and continue process until the mixture is gone. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes or until firm. Enjoy right away and/or store the remaining cookies (in an airtight container/baggie) in the...
