Healthy Brownie Bites Vegan and Gluten Free

Happy Monday!  It’s been a Birthday frenzy at my house.  Both my daughters have Birthday’s in April and while I love cake, especially frosting, I cannot eat cake for every party we have.  I did indulge a bit in this beautiful cake my mom made for my daughter Chloe, but I paid the price later.  I am pretty sensitive to dairy and this cake had a whipped cream frosting, which was very yummy!  I cannot eat a lot of dairy or I pay the price.  So I searched the internet and found a few recipes and made a few tweeks and came up with a super yummy brownie bite recipe.  These brownie bites feature 4 simple ingredients and are quick and easy to prepare.  I will say that if you are used to eating the “real deal” brownie bites, this is not going to taste the same.  Depending on the protein powder you use it will change the taste and texture.  One of my daughters ate 3 of them, the other did not like them at all.  I really enjoyed them, but I don’t usually eat a lot of super sweet foods.  My hubby plans to top them with a bit of peanut butter or real whipped cream!  So next time you have a party or an event and need to bring a dessert give these brownies a try. Or just make a batch when you have a major chocolate craving!

Healthy Brownie Bite Recipe (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Makes 15 Brownie Bites (I used a mini muffin tin)

3 Ripe Bananas

½ Cup Nut Butter (I used almond butter)

4 Scoops Orgain Protein Powder (2 Servings)

4 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder

Optional:  Stevia to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a muffin tin or 9×13 pan with non-stick coconut oil spray.  In a food processor or mixer blend bananas, nut butter, protein powder and cocoa powder until smooth and fully incorporated.  Scoop the mixture into your pan and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool and enjoy!

Just Wait

Good morning!  Today I have been thinking a lot about spiritual strength and patience.  If you know me, I am not a patient person at all.  This drives my husband crazy.  The past few months my oldest daughter has been playing basketball.  She loves basketball and wants to play in high school and maybe even in college.  This year has been a rough season for her and her team.  The past few years her team has always been on the top even winning championship games.  As a mom you want your kids to be the winners.  This has not been the case this season.  It has been a rough season.  The team has only won 2 games and our team has mostly new members playing on it.  My daughter is just like me and doesn’t have any patience and can let things get in her head at times.  

We talked to her at t2 Chronicleshe beginning of the season and told her that it is not always about winning but getting better by working hard everyday.  I have seen her grow stronger this season not only as a player but as a leader.  Although they are going to end their season next week only winning two games I can see she has grown through this experience.  Last week our Pastor Doug (http://www.rockharbor.tv/sermons) gave a message that really stuck with me.  He said this “God’s delays are not necessarily God’s denials.”  I think this is so true especially if you are impatient like me.  Just because something has not happened yet does not mean that it will not happen but we need to continue to work as we wait patiently for God’s plan to develop.  I need to remember each day and try to become more patient. This is my prayer for my daughters today and for all of you.
