Is it possible to have two totally polar opposite foods in one bite? Something so good for you packed with vegetarian protein and another much more naughty and irresistable like chocolate. I can easily be swayed to down a bowl of black beans and rice as long as I know there’s anything chocolate at the end as it’s my total weakness! If this is the way that I’m wired I can’t imagine I’m the only one. Imagine if black beans and chocolate were combined into rich, decadent brownies that were so irresistable you couldn’t stop bite after bite. Even though the idea of black beans in your brownies might turn you off, the first bite of these Gluten Free Double Chocolate Black Bean Brownies will change your ways!
The best part of this decadent marriage is that they’re good for you too. Whenever I make these no one can tell the secret ingredient that makes them so moist and rich. It’s the most hilarious guessing game! No one would ever say “black beans?” By...
If there’s one food that I buy way too much of on a weekly basis it’s bananas. We must go through 3-5 daily, so it’s tough not to grab a big bunch or two every time I’m at the grocery.

When I say I crave good Chinese food, I mean I really crave it. In our neighborhood, though, it’s hard to find Chinese dishes that aren’t coated with tons of additives and way too sweet, salty or other funky ingredients. Sweet and Sour Pineapple Chicken is one of my all time favorites, but I wanted a healthier version. This is one of the dishes my parents used to get for us on those rare nights my mom didn’t cook. It was crazy sweet making it even more addictive, but looking back it couldn’t have been all that good for us.
