My First Blog Post
Welcome to my first blog post, WOW, it seems like it’s taken me forever to get to this point.
I had the idea to start my own blog a while back when I became obsessed with posting my food & workouts on instagram. However, being a perfectionist it has taken me a long time to get to this point and after carrying out copious amounts of research on what people want to hear and read, I am still unsure of what to write. SO I have concluded that I shall write about the things that excite me in life and when reading other blogs… which is simply my two favourite things; lifting weights & eating delicious (but simple) food. I particularly love to read about this stuff from real everyday women. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love to read about the model types living in California, the beautiful people who are lucky enough to work out on muscle beach, but, not being one of these people and residing in the rainy city of Manchester, UK, I sometimes find this can be slightly depressing.
So, here I am. Your average young women, who maybe doesn’t have the perfect body, but is passionate enough (& maybe dumb enough) to believe that one day, I too could be comfortably training on Miami Beach in my skimpy bikini (or at least on holiday in Devon).
I adore spending time in my kitchen; experimenting to make my favourite meals & treats clean and healthy. To me there is nothing more satisfying then shocking my friends with a Brownie made out of BLACK BEANS or a cupcake made with protein & no added sugar! So, I thought what better way to accompany my first blog post than with a recipe for my favourite treat made clean.
Black Bean Brownies
My Big Fit Brownie Recipe
1x can Black Beans (240g drained)
½ cup of unsweetened cocoa (preferably cacao)
3 TBSP Coconut oil
¼ cup Xylitol
¼ cup raw honey
1 x heaping TBSP Peanut Butter
Blend all of the above and add to a greased muffin tin and cook on 180 degrees c for 25-30 mins. To check if they are done, use a skewer and make sure it comes out clean.
This recipe makes 10 individual brownies and you can add some nuts to the batter or maybe even some fruit.
Macros per brownie.
If you wanted to you could use the mixture to make one big brownie and cut it into smaller squares.
