Mix egg, black beans, avocado, vanilla and sugar in the food processor until smooth.

Add the Carob,  coconut oil, baking soda, baking powder and mix again until smooth.

Batter needs to be sticky to be fudgy.

If you want it thinner add a tablespoon or so of coconut milk.

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Eggs – Eggciting Egg Ideas

“Egg”citing Egg Ideas

Eggs are so good for you.  They are a cheap source of protein for your body and wallet!  Egg whites contain adequate amounts of all essential amino acids.  Eggs are a good source of iodine, important for healthy thyroid function.  Egg yokes contain Lutein, which is an important phytonutrient for eye health.  Eggs are also an excellent source of B Vitamin Choline, which is an important nutrient for brain function.   Eggs have omega 3’s and are a very good source of selenium. Without enough iodine the body cannot synthesize thyroid hormones (T3 & T4).  And without selenium the body cannot have healthy thyroid metabolism function.
