Recipe: Gluten Free Brownies! (Black Bean Brownies)

Hi everyone!

This year, I've become more aware of the importance of a healthy lifestyle. I used to devour chips and processed junk that tasted delicious, but was toxic for my body. Over the summer, I developed healthy eating habits and a consistent workout "routine". Now, I control my portions, eat (mostly) vegan, gluten-free, and as raw as possible. In other words, I try to eat as clean as I can. Alongside with being more active and putting on my running shoes, I've lost a total of 20 pounds since the summer time. I am proud of my accomplishments and motivated to continue live a healthy lifestyle. If you want more information on my weight loss, or anything alongside my "diet" and nutrition or working out, let me know and I'll be happy to share it with you!

Anyways, today I wanted to share a recipe that I saw on MeghanRosette's youtube channel, which is recipe for Black Bean Brownies! Now, I know the name is scary, but trust me, if you're someone who is eating clean and staying away from processed chocolates and fatty foods full of refined sugar and butter, then these brownies are perfect for you!

Ingredients:

I can of Black Beans
-1/4 Cup Coco Powder
-10-12 Tablespoons or 3/4 of a cup Stevia (or any other sweetener)
-1/2 Cup of Apple Sauce
-3 Eggs (or 9 egg whites) 
-1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract 
-Pinch of Salt
-Chocolate Chips
Directions:

1.) Preheat ove to 350 degrees
2.) Drain Black Beans
3.) Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth (besides for chocolate chips)
4.) Place into a baking dish and bake for 30 minutes, check every 5 minutes
5.) Cool for 15 minutes and serve!

I hope you all enjoyed this healthy recipe, let me know how yours turned out! Please note, even though these brownies are way more healthy than typical brownies, they are only healthy in moderation!

Until Next Time,
xoxo
Vanessa
