100 Calorie Fudgy Paleo Brownies!


Hello friends…do you know what? I am done with black bean brownies. And beet brownies, and spinach brownies, and all the other funky hippy variations of brownies. Because when I get the hankering for something fudgy and chocolatey, I want the real deal, and I don’t want to have to pick kale out of my teeth after a dessert. Enter my 116 calorie paleo fudge brownies, (ok so that is 16 calories more than 100 but who really cares?). I kept experimenting in my kitchen until I got the right flavor and consistency, and these are not only my favorite “clean” brownies, my kids love them too!



A lowcarb blend of organic vegan chocolate protein powder, coconut flour, and cocoa powder replace traditional white flour. This ensures a healthy dose of protein and fiber with no sugars. Then I add nut butter for richness and good fats. A dose of pureed pumpkin makes these brownies moist and fudgy with a hefty dose of vitamin A. In fact I recommend pumpkin in all baked goods, as a great replacement for oil or butter. Finally a little bit of maple syrup and sugar free syrup add the perfect amount of sweetness. While this recipe does require an egg, vegans can use a “flax egg” which is 1 tbs flaxseed meal plus 2.5 tbs of water. So, while everyone is munching on GMO Halloween candy this year, I will be feasting on my feel good brownies, with a few chocolate chips thrown in. 😉  Want the recipe, click on the video below, and check out the amazing macros of these brownies as well!
