So let me give you the recipe for a mouth-watering, nutrient-packed sweetie called ‘Melted Choco-Protein Brownie Babies’
- 260 grams chickpeas, cooked (or you can use cooked unsalted black beans or adzuki beans)
- 3/8 cup coconut nectar or coconut sugar (alternatively, use something which is lower in carbs, or another sweetener)
- ¼ cup pea protein powder, chocolate flavour
- 3/8 cup of 100% cocoa powder
- ¾ cup eggwhites
- 2 small pieces (approximately 85 grams) cooked beets (cooked sweet potatoes may be used instead if you don’t like beets, or use 2-3 tablespoons of peanut butter)
- 1 tablespoon of toffee flavdrops ( you have the option not to include this, but adding it would be nice)
- 8 squares (10 grams each) of dark chocolate (85%)
Directions for cooking:
- Mix all ingredients together and blend well. Using a small brownie pan, pour the mixed ingredients.
- Place the pan inside the oven and bake at 175C (335F) for twenty minutes or until done. You may test this by inserting a toothpick at the center of the brownie mix, it should come out clean when removed.
- Once cooked, remove from the oven. Cut into small squares. To have that melting effect, place chocolate squares on top of the hot brownie.
- Adding chopped nuts or nut butter on top of the brownies may be done to have that extra-special look, and added protein effect.
- If you want to make more of these, just double the amount of the ingredients.
