“In my experience, clients that are in treatment for eating disorders such as bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia or bulimarexia are typically faced with an increased risk of inadequate nutrition. To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at ‘The Norton Center for Eating Disorders & Obesity’.”
A treat that some of my patients enjoy regularly, a quick and easy brownie. Prepared in less than three minutes, it’s a dream come true during times of choco-emergency. This really satisfies a chocolate craving without any guilt. Not to mention, each brownie has 15 grams of protein!
This recipe was inspired by SmoothieGirlEatsToo. Definitely check out her blog for some delicious recipes!
I have recently discovered a line of products called Coconut Secret. In the past, we have used stevia to sweeten these brownies, but we have switched to using raw coconut crystals. It’s a completely natural sweetener that contains 17 amino acids. It’s also low glycemic and non-GMO.
This brownie is great just on it’s own, but is also great with peanut or almond butter, greek yogurt, or TruWhip….the possibilities are endless!
Three Minute Brownie
2 tablespoons peanut flour
1 tablespoon raw cocoa powder (leave this out if you want a pumpkin spice muffin)
1-2 teaspoons raw coconut crystals
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons canned organic 100% pumpkin
3 tablespoons organic, pastured egg whites
a few drops if vanilla
Combine all the ingredients and mix til combined.
Grease a small ramekin, pour the brownie batter mixture.
Cook for 2 minutes in the microwave (might need longer depending on your microwave).
