Black Bean Brownies

Vegan, Gluten Free 

Happily Serves 15 (2oz individual serving size)

ALL ORGANIC INGREDIENTS 

3 TBSP Ground Chia Seed + 6 TBSP Water (this equals 2 eggs)

2 Cups Black beans (If you are going to use canned, rinse and drain well)

3/4 Cup Cacao Powder

1/4 tsp Himalayan Sea salt

1/2 Cup Coconut Sugar or Monk Fruit 

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 1/2 tsp Baking powder

3 TBSP Coconut Oil

Optional:

1/4 Cup Dairy-free chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly grease a mini muffin pan, or an 8×8 Bar pan.

Make Chia seed egg by combining ground chia seed and water in the food processor. You can make this in a separate small if you don’t have a food processor.  Pulse a few times and then let sit for a 2-3 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients (except chocolate chips) and puree about 3 minutes.  Scrape down sides to blend until smooth.

If the batter seems too thick, you can add a 1-2 TBSP of water, pulse again. It should not be runny, it should be slightly less thick than chocolate frosting.

Evenly fill the mini muffin tin and tap pan to remove air bubbles.

Optional: Sprinkle with chocolate chips. 

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the tops are dry and the edges start to pull away from the sides. 

Remove from oven and let cool for 30 minutes before removing from pan.  Remove gently because the insides are meant to be fudgy.

Optional to have this be a NO BAKE BROWNIE.  Since there is no raw ingredients, you can individually separate portions and eat the batter plain or cook when you are ready for a hot brownie!

Holiday Drinks and Natural Remedies for Hangovers

Holiday drinks!! What to do if you drink to little water and become dehydrated and have a hangover the following day?

If you are going to drink this holiday season, please be responsible and smart.  Always choose good quality ingredients and ORGANIC where you can.  Good rule of thumb is drink a glass of water after each mixed drink. This will not affect your “Buzz” It allows your body to metabolize the alcohol content.

Following the “fun” recipes I have listed a few tips to help sooth your guts.  Remember: if you are a coffee/caffeine person or drinker, those two deplete your B vitamins and fatigue/stress your adrenals out.  Supplements are strongly recommended to help keep levels normal.

I’d be more than happy to help create a meal plan for you to keep you on track during the holidays.  Happy creating!!

I found Bailey’s Almond cream, it’s gluten free and vegan.  Was a total hit at class.  The salted Caramel Kaula was a second win!  The Staff at Total Wine was so helpful in answering my questions since my knowledge lacks in this department.  Don’t be afraid to ask….remember you are the consumer and you vote with your dollars so do so wisely.
