Happy Wednesday friends! I’ve had just about enough of snow already! The good thing about a snowstorm is you are housebound -which means baking! How about some black bean brownies! This week I’m sharing a new version of an old favorite recipe!
But first, let’s jump into this week’s eats!
Breakfast: I was sent the new Stack’D Banana Caramel pancake mix to try. It is amazing! Perfect blend of banana and caramel. Here is a quick shot of the pancakes before I devoured them! I’ve been experimenting with several recipes including banana bread bars and muffins!
Morning Snack: The Bia Bar!!! Yes and yes! If you love peanut butter fudge, you will love these bars. I truly hope they decide to add more flavors! These are amazing and can be ordered via Amazon or Mixt Nutrition.
Lunch: Van’s makes the best waffles! I had a BBQ chicken waffle sandwich with some roasted butternut squash for a quick lunch. I prepped the chicken and squash ahead and simply pop my waffles into the toaster at work!
Who doesn’t love a rich and fudgey brownie!
I love brownies! I’ve been making my tried and true favorite black bean brownies for the past few years. I decided to make a few changes in order to make a thicker and fudgier brownie! I think these turned out pretty darn good if I say so myself. I hope you give them a try!
- 40 grams Cellucor Molten Chocolate protein powder(or your favorite chocolate protein powder)
- 20 grams Hershey's Dark Cocoa Powder
- 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
- ¼ cup honey
- ⅛ tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Add all ingredients into your blender or food processor.
- Process until smooth and no lumps from the beans.
- Add batter to an 8X8 glass baking dish.
- Bake for 28 - 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
- Allow to cool.
- This makes 12 small brownies or 6 larger.
Dinner: Miso Ginger marinated Chilean Seabass for dinner. I’m a huge fan of Bolthouse Farms salad dressings. They make terrific marinades for chicken, turkey and fish. My Seabass was seasoned with Spice Cave Sea seasoning. Keep an eye out this Friday for my review of these new spices!
And that’s it. Hope you have a great day, friends! See you back here on Friday!
