The other day after coming in from a walk on a chilly afternoon with my daughter it was time for her nap and I was craving a sweet and chocolaty treat! As usual, I set out to be creative and grab a few things out of my pantry and make something indulgent but healthy at the same time. (Experimenting in the kitchen is actually one of my favorite ways to unwind these days! I find it very fun and relaxing!) Needless to say, after browsing through my various pantry items I pulled these ingredients and came up with the most delicious and simple microwave brownie recipe! I have been making it about once or twice a week ever since...it is really THAT good! Did I mention it is gluten free, low sugar, and full of protein and all real, wholesome ingredients? Please try it out and leave a comment below with how you liked it!
•1/4 cup of almond flour
•1/8 tsp. of baking powder
•1 packed tbsp. of unsweetened cocoa powder
•1 ounce of good quality dark chocolate (I use two Ghirardelli squares)
•3 tbsp of egg whites
•2 packets of Stevia in the Raw
•3 tbsp of coconut milk
•1 tbsp of natural peanut butter (softened for 30 seconds in the microwave)
In your favorite Christmas mug combine the above ingredients. Then, swirl in the softened peanut butter on top and cook it in the microwave for two minutes. Then...ENJOY!
