Black Bean Brownies

Okay, so I seriously contemplated switching out the name of this recipe because I know what you’re thinking…Black beans? In my brownies? Ewww!

And honestly, about a week ago, I was right there with you, but for some reason, I was having a hankering for some rich, fudgy brownies. But I’ve been doing a lot better with staying on track with my nutrition and didn’t want to just give in to the traditional “treat,” so I decided to get a little creative.

Looking for a healthy alternative to the traditional calorie-laden treat? Try these Black Bean Brownies! You won't be disappointed!

Chocolate Superfood Smoothies

Let me just put this out there first…I have ALWAYS had a sweet tooth, like eat all the icing off the cake type sweet tooth. So when I started hearing people say that their Shakeology helped with their cravings for sweets, well, I was skeptical to say the least. BUT I did a little research and gave it a try.

And it has made ALL the difference! So now I share it with everyone I come across because when you find something good, you share it, right?! 😉

Since I’ve now been doing this whole superfood smoothie thing for a while now, I figured it was high time I shared a few of my favorite recipes with you! And what better recipes to share for a recovering sugar addict than the CHOCOLATE ones!

For each of the recipes, combine the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Yep, it’s that simple!

I love that this is a perfect way to get some extra veggies in and to cut the carbs on a normally carb-heavy dish. My husband was skeptical at first, but both he and my 1-year-old loved it! Continue reading
