Why not add some Vega to that awesome Black Bean Brownie? It's no secret; Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer provides many times the fiber, Omega 3, greens, vitamins and minerals than most standard breakfast choices. Finally, we can feel good about eating brownies for breakfast! And these ones are rich in both protein and fiber, to keep you feeling full for hours.
But wait, black beans in a brownie, ew!? My first thought, exactly. Why don't you do a quick Google search for "awesome black bean brownie" and you will see... they're beyond popular! It's because black bean brownies are one of those healthy spins on a classic recipe (the kind you devoured growing up), that not only tastes just as heavenly, but with the added nutritional bonus (minus the refined flour, sugars etc.) is better than the original!
As Peggy explains in her book, Must Have Been Something I Ate you can create a big impact on your health by incorporating small (yet delicious) changes to your meals or snacks overtime. So what are you waiting for? Here's what you need...
1 serving Chocolate Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer
15 ounces Black Beans, drained and rinsed
2 Bananas, ripened and mashed
¼ CUP Unsweetened Cocoa
1 TSP Cinnamon
1/4 TSP Salt
1 TSP Vanilla Extract
¼ CUP Rolled Oats
1/3 – 1/2 CUP Hemp Milk (or preferred milk alternative)
1/3 CUP Agave Nectar (optional)
With Summer just around the corner, why not pair these brownies with a delicious fresh fruit sangria...
