Not that I have had ANY action in the recent past, but I like to call these break up brownies because I think we all need a little comfort AND ENERGY when feeling lonely or unloved/unloveable. I started this first batch during my “something out of character” tasks…but have refined it. Seriously, give it a try! It packs protein, too, of course…and I figure around 100 calories per bar.
1 Can Chick Peas, drained
.25 C.up Nut butter (I LOVE CASHEW butter in this one!)
.25 Cup Maple/Brown Rice/Agave Syrup
Blend Above ingredients together (the canned beans have salt in them, so you don’t need to add any to the mix)
Add to this mix, one VERY RIPE banana…
Then blend in about 3 TABLESPOONS cocoa powder, a dash of vanilla extract, and a tsp of nutmeg.
finally, fold in just .25 Cup INSTANT oats…
Place in sprayed 8 X 8 Pan, and cook in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes
HINT: COOL AND THEN FREEZE THESE to make easier to cut (they’ll be fudgy, and if too fudgy and you like cakey ones, add more oats, or a little flour).
