Fit Peanut Butter Cup Brownie

Hey guys!

How would you like to take the Peanut Butter & chocolate layered idea of a Peanut Butter Cup & turn it into a healthy & fit snack?!

If you don’t like the idea… well idk we probably shouldn’t be friends.

For those of you who do like the idea, let me show you how it’s possible!

The main ingredients are…
  • organic oats
  • coconut flour
  • vegan peanut butter protein powder (I like @drinkorgain –has only 1 g of sugar)
  • organic sweet potato puree (can also replace with organic pumpkin puree)

All these ingredients are protein packed! They are also low in fat, high in fiber, & low in sugar… per usual here at The Kelly Diet 🙂

So let’s get that delicious peanut butter/ chocolate fix with this fit option!

Healthier, Carrot-Ginger Dessert Bread (Version 2)

Don’t forget to follow my Instagram, @thekellydiet, for more recipes not posted on the blog! Like this ‘Vegan Pizza made with Farmer’s market Veggies!’

img_3673

Now onto this ‘Healthier, Carrot-Ginger Dessert Bread!’

img_3591

This version, Version 2, is more sweet & moist for more of that dessert bread taste!

Coconut oil is getting a lot of debate right now, being called ‘basically poison.’ I don’t use coconut oil often & don’t eat much fat in general. So for me, I don’t think baking with it occasionally is a problem. If you feel like you would rather avoid it try using non-dairy, non-soy plain greek yogurt instead! You can replace it for the full amount or keep half the amount of coconut oil & replace the other half with the yogurt 🙂

This ‘dessert’ version is still way healthier than your average banana or zucchini bread loaded with sugar, butter, & white flour. So bake this puppy up, don’t stress, & enjoy!
