True Love Brownies
Last year around Valentine’s Day, I was working as a nutrition coach for the Vermont Biggest Loser competition, and I wanted to offer my hard-working team a delicious treat. Something they had diligently been avoiding, such a brownies. We had turned their diets around in order to support their blood sugar levels. The team was doing a great job sticking to low glycemic meals which were helping them feel satisfied longer, have fewer cravings, enjoy even energy levels and lose weight! Staying within those guidelines, I made them a batch of low-glycemic brownies for a great-tasting, high-protein, high-fiber treat.
How to turn moist chocolatey brownies into something healthy? Well, you need a few unusual ingredients. I thought if included them in the name of the recipe, it might turn people away, so I renamed it “true love” since I think a great way to show love is to offer healthy foods.
