SUPERFOOD // BEANS:
I don’t know about you, but I’m always game for a little chocolate and peanut butter action. Good news is, these delicious no-bake DOUBLE CHOCOLATE & PB BROWNIE BITES come together super quick in your blender or food processor. Better still, they are free of refined sugar and absolutely packed with fibre, protein, healthy fats, and antioxidants.
The surprise ingredient in these little balls of bliss is black beans. Now don’t let this scare you off! My hubby and 3 chicklets could NOT taste the beans and thought someone else had made them unhealthy brownies! In terms of nutrition, black beans really pack a punch. One cup of these nutrient-rich legumes contains almost 15 grams of fibre — including resistant starch aka gut-friendly prebiotics — and over 15 grams of protein. Furthermore, black beans are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals including zinc and folate, as well as flavonoid antioxidants.
