I have come to blog bearing recipe gifts that are unheard of, at least to my knowledge.
Brownie freaking Bites !@#$%^&*() — WHAAAAAAT
Okay, now that I am calm I can reminisce. Many moons ago, as I have shared before, I was one of the culprits that supported sugar and gluten. Now that I am no more and have been in recovery well over 2 years for my eating disorders, I have acknowledged that my body is
my God’s temple. If I want to respect and love my body how God asks me to in His Word, I had to cut those things out but I, also, had to learn to cook healthy foods–as I never knew what to do without sugar or flour. Once I learned to cook healthy basics, I thought I was invincible in the kitchen. As a matter of fact, I am not invincible in the kitchen. I make tons of mistakes while cooking and baking BUT that’s besides the point.
As a child, who didn’t beg mom to lick the spoon/spatula after making brownies? I still don’t know one soul that hasn’t. If you don’t like chocolate, I don’t like you. Moving right along. That is one of those flavors I longed for but I wanted it to be full of wholesome and nutritious ingredients. THIS my friends is the taste of brownie batter in a full-protein and amino acid filled bite of goodness. I took one bite and was sold. You guys will be, too. Enjoy!!!! xo
P.S. I know you are desperate to make/eat these immediately but DON’T forget the ground cacao nibs they are the glue of it all.
