Secret recipe brownies. Not so secret!

Deep chocolate sensation, with half the calories and only 2g of fat? Get out…

No really, they’re low fat, they’re made with lentils!Full of nutrients and protein to keep you fuller for longer and keeping muscles building throughout the day.

½ cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup lentils
4 tbsp cocoa
1  cup sugar
½ cup of sugar replacement
¾ tsp salt
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
Optional additives
1/2 white chocolate chips
1/2 cup cranberries
INSTRUCTIONS
Melt butter; mix in lentil purée, cocoa, sugar and salt. Add eggs, one at a time. Mix in vanilla, flour, and cranberries.
Bake in a greased 9 x 13 pan
at 350° F (175° C) for 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre
comes out clean.
(instead of sugar replacement
you could use 1/3 of a cup of protein powder and add 3 tbsp of brown sugar to
sweeten)

I cooked mine until 2-3
minutes from done, so they were gooey and fudgy. I definitely recommend cream
or yoghurt to go with them as they’re very rich.

    Ohh I’m sorry to read that you feel this way. I think that you should embrace your body even it looks a bit “fat”. Just be happy you are alive and don’t care about that you have gone up in weight, but you know if you want to change things you just have to swap with vegetables and drink loads of water. I know what you mean when you say you don’t feel confident enought to take a “selfie”, but all you gotta do is to just start someweherea again and then you will be there in no time. Wish you best of luck x

      That’s such a sweet comment, but you should know that I’m a health and fitness blogger. I know a tonne about health/nutrition and diet, which is what has lead me to feel so guilty about my health (not my weight).
      I appreciate the support though 🙂

    Thank you for sharing this – I think this actually helps make you a better role model. It is so easy to slip and it shows that everyone can have a bump in the road. Either way you look amazing!

      Thank you Olivia, that’s really sweet.
      I will always love my body no matter what, I’m just hot ‘happy’ with how unhealthy I’ve become in recent weeks, especially not with being a Hblogger and all x Thanks for your support x
