I have a tasty recipe to share with you today that I've been keeping secret for a few weeks! I had to make sure it was perfect before sharing the recipe with you, obviously!
Since I created this recipe a few weeks ago, I've made it several times. Therefore, I've went to foodie heaven several times…
It's moist, chocolatey, and high in protein without any protein powder believe it or not! Lately, I've only been having protein powder in my post workout shakes. I think I like it that way best – focusing on eating real and whole foods. Not powders. But, that's just my preference
This recipe is easy peasy just like I promised yesterday because you can have it hot and ready to eat in under five minutes with the use of your microwave!
Black Bean Chocolate Mug Cake
Makes 1 serving
1 TBSP cocoa powder
1 TBSP coconut flour
1/2 cup black beans
1/4 cup egg whites or 1 whole egg
2 TBSP liquid (almond milk, cow's milk, soy milk, coconut milk etc.)
pinch of baking powder
a few drops of liquid stevia
Blend all together until smooth batter forms.
Heat in microwave for 2 – 3 minutes or until fully cooked!
Unfortunately, I don't have a pretty picture of this delicious little treat because, let's face it, are mug cakes ever really pretty?
No, of course not. But, I can
promise you that it is absolutely delicious
It's even better when you top it with almond butter…
Or coconut butter…
Or walnut butter…
Or hazelnut butter…
The hazelnut variation reminds me of a Ferrero Rocher
The possibilities are endless! I hope you enjoy!
Have you ever baked with beans before? Something about baking with beans fascinates me…
