        1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips

        Preheat oven to 350°. Grease an 8 x 8″ baking stone.

        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.

        Fold in the chocolate chips spread in the pan and bake for about 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.

        Tips:  The food processor is best.  It  blends and hides the consistency of the beans.

        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.
