Single serve brownies. Perfect for Valentine’s Day with your best girlfriend or your boo! Heck these are even perfect for breakfast on an ordinary Wednesday. Yes, I had these for breakfast. It was glorious!
Whipped cream and all. You gotta have fun in all parts of life and for me that means eating dessert for breakfast, and often!! I love single serve desserts like this because they are automatically portion controlled for you. I often find myself sneaking back for more when I make a whole tray of brownies, which even though these are healthy, it’s also important to practice self control every once and awhile.
Don’t get me wrong. These are a glorified protein shake in brownie form. I honestly couldn’t believe how good they turned out with the limited ingredients and cooking time. But you gotta trust your gut sometimes and I’m so glad I did!
But you won’t taste a glorified protein shake. You will taste a very soft but not crumbly brownie. It’s fudgy and full of cacao nibs for added chocolate flavor. Cacao nibs are full of the antioxidants that are normally lost during the manufacturing process of making bars of chocolate so eat up!! If you haven’t noticed from this weeks chocolate fenzie I’m pretty obsessed with these nuggets of love. Anyone else on the cacao bean love train?
These brownies have a great balance of carbs, protein, and fat to start your day. These would be great to help you get through that 3pm afternoon slump or after work before a killer workout. Of course I recommend them as dessert as well. Actually, they are so healthy you don’t even have to consider them dessert, so you can even have that extra glass of wine 🙂 oh is that just me?
Naturally sweetened with banana and stevia there is no crazy sugar high to come down from or to keep you awake if you happen to indulge in a late night snack. I used frozen coconut whipped cream for a topping. It’s made from coconut milk and has limited ingredients. I really love it, and highly recommend 🙂 It’s a little hard to find but I was able to pick it up at my local Whole Foods (So Delicious Coco Whip).
