Moderation is key in exercise, health and lifestyle. But it’s also a big part of diet as a whole so as to nourish your body without depriving yourself. What’s ideal is if you can combine both - nutrients and a treat - especially without the crash feeling a lot of sugary or heavy carb foods provide that we love to indulge in! For a guiltless treat and a metabolism jumping snack try these Brownie Bites:
-1 cup mashed bananas
-1/2 smooth almond butter or preferred nut butter
-1/4 Cup cocoa powder
-1-2 scoops protein powder (casein or vegan)
- 1 mini cupcake pan
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease mini cupcake pan very well to prevent brownies getting stuck.
Mix all ingredients with a blender until smooth.
Pour mixture into cupcake slots until full.
Bake 12-15 mins or until a knife or toothpick comes out clean. Cool and refrigerate any you aren’t eating for later!
