This will actually be my first post… How exciting!!! If you had a chance to look at my Cooking Story you will see I love reinventing meals into wholesome goodness! I turned a simple dessert into something vegan, gluten-free, healthy and delicious! The look on everyone’s face when I told them the ingredients was rewarding. With its moist, fudge-like texture and perfect crunch this tasty treat was not only delectable but also filled with tons of nutrients!
It wasn’t easy coming up with my first post but with the help of my 5 biggest food critics, my husband and kids, we decided to go with a dessert. Who doesn’t love dessert, right?!
The great thing about this tasty treat is that you don’t have to feel guilty because you are actually eating spinach and chickpeas. As most of you may know spinach is high in iron… Like Popeye said, “I’m strong to the finish, cause I eats me spinach!”. But did you also know that research has identified more than a dozen different flavonoids in spinach that function as anti-inflammatory and anti-cancerous agents? I also added chickpeas which are high in protein and fiber making this a great post-run snack. Sweetened with date syrup rather than refined sugar this mouth watering delight has a lower glycemic index and is loaded with vitamins and minerals as well. Not only does it keep the brownie moist it also has a rich delicious flavor.
So now when you are craving an extra bit of chocolate, you know what to make😉
What are some of your favorite dessert?
