Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Brownies

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Brownies

My first attempt at black bean brownies was such a success, that I decided to try out different flavor combinations. I am obsessed with nut butter, so it was only natural to do a chocolate and peanut butter combination for these protein brownies. I basically took my original chocolate fudge black bean brownies recipe and just tweaked it. I know the idea of adding beans to a dessert seemed very strange and possibly disgusting to some people,  but I promise you that you will be missing out on a delicious dessert if you do not try these! Not only do these chocolate peanut butter protein brownies taste delicious, but you can not taste the beans in the slightest and they are a low glycemic/low sugar/high protein dessert. The prep time is under 5 minutes and the recipe is fool-proof! Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Gather all ingredients, a baking pan, a blender/food processor, and a large spoon. Drain the water from the black beans and rinse well with water. Add all ingredients, except the chocolate chips and 1 1/2 tbsp peanut butter, into the food processor and blend together for at least 1 minute. Make sure you scrape the sides of the processor and blend until all ingredients are very smooth. Spray a pan with pam cooking spray (I used 13 x 9, but use 8 x 8 for thick brownies) and pour the brownie batter into the baking pan. If you want to add a little more chocolate to the brownies, sprinkle 2-3 tbsp of dark or milk-chocolate chips over the batter. Put remaining 1 1/2 tbsp peanut...

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...
