Did you know it’s National Dessert Day?

I love Sugar.  I confess, I’m a sugar addict.  But, through whole quality balanced eating I have total control over my cravings.  In fact I rarely have any anymore.  This is a learn skilled and one that can be conquered.  This is what I teach and help dis-assemble for people.  For each person it may be something entirely different.  But the one constant is choosing high quality whole foods.

One way to learn more about over coming sugar cravings is to join my 7 Day Sugar Cleanse http://conta.cc/mUDxt7 The information shared here is life changing for the better.  I help people eat the right foods for the rest of their life.    Below is one of the recipes I share with my clients.  I hope you enjoy.

Black Bean Brownies
16oz organic black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
4 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup xylitol (buy at co-op, it’s a natural sweetener)
1 1/2 tsp spoonable stevia
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 organic free range eggs (large)
1/2 cup almond flour, fine ground and sifted
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3 Tbsp flax meal (optional)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup water

1.)  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Puree the black beans in a food processor or blender until completely smooth (may need to add a couple Tablespoons of water to help this along, but you don’t want the beans to get soupy).

2.)  Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl until just combined.  Grease 9×9 inch glass pan with about 1 teaspoon of coconut oil.  Pour batter evenly in pan and bake for 40-50 minutes, watching that the edges don’t burn.  Cool for at least 1 hour, or they may be too gooey to slice.  ENJOY!

You can stir in any of your favorite additions.  We love unsweetened coconut flakes and dark chocolate chips!  Other ideas: chopped almonds, chopped macadamia nuts, swirl in almond butter, chopped walnuts, 2 Tablespoons espresso, or almond extract.
