So sorry I left you hanging without a MIMM post yesterday. I was at the wedding of Sandro’s brother all weekend. Besides that I did not take one single pic of the whole weekend, I wasn’t in the mood to sit down on the computer when we got back home on Sunday late afternoon. Sorry, but you know, sometimes, real life is takes over and I love to be part of it.
The wedding was wonderful, a DREAM!! Although it was hot like hell (37°C), we all enjoyed it to the max and that’s also why I did not bother to take pics – I just wanted to enjoy it and soak everything up.
BUT – on Friday, before I went off to the wedding location, I sneaked in a baking session in the kitchen. As mentioned, I wanted to make the:
….from Tina and I did. Unfortunately, my Chocolate Chips melted when I put the mixture in the sun quickly to let the coconut butter melt. Speaking of which, I cut the coconut butter amount in half and added half tahini to it. They turned out great and I can not get enough of them, they taste heavenly. Believe me, you want them!!
I also made Jessie’s Cinnamon Vanilla roasted chickpeas and I am addicted now.
But I also created my own new recipe!
I baked with chickpeas before and as strange as it sounds, it is really really good. #strangebutgood. When I realized that I have chickpeas left AND walnuts, I knew I have to make brownies. I never thought they’d turn out so fudgy. With the added protein powder and eggwhites, they even suit for a proteinpacked snack pre- or postworkout.
Healthy Fudge Brownies
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
3 tbsp raw unsweetened cocoa powder
1 can chickpeas
1 heaped tbsp honey (add more if you want them sweeter!)
2 tbsp stevia powder
100g chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Mix all the ingredients except the walnuts.
Stir in the walnuts until it is a smooth and sticky batter.
Eat some of it.
Spray a square baking form with cooking spray or lay it out with a baking sheet (less messy 🙂 ) .
Pour the batter into the baking form.
Plant your face in the remaining batter.
Bake at 180°C for 20-25 minutes.
Did you ever bake with chickpeas or beans?
Do you eat before a workout, and if so, what?
