Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.

I can't remember if I mentioned this in my previous blog post but I'm on Weight Watchers and these brownies are less than a point each. Fruit and veggies are no points (except for corn, potatoes and avocados) so they don't count in your daily point allotment. Because of this, these brownies are a sweet treat and a completely free ride. It's so cool when you can snack on chocolate without having to worry about how many calories is in what you're eating or how many sugars are messing with your energy levels. Pure, unsweetened cocoa powder is cool too because it has a pretty good amount of fiber in each serving.

I'm heading to California next week for a week to visit my friend and I'm already planning out my airplane snacks. What do you guys take on a flight? It's about a 6 hour flight so I want to be prepared so when I see my friend I'm not hangry. I also don't want to overeat on my trip or have problems following my points so I'm trying to plan ahead. I have some Graze snacks, some Clif Z bars and maybe some walnuts. I think I'm set; now I just have to pack my clothes!


3 medium spotty bananas
3/4 cup of cocoa powder
1/2 tsp of baking powder

Add the bananas to your food processor. I broke them up before adding them. Process them into a puree then add the cocoa powder and baking powder. I scooped the batter into a cupcake pan to make 6 cupcake brownies. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Let cool completely before digging in so they can set! The cocoa powder is 5 points so each brownie is under a point if you are following Weight Watchers. A great low cal snack!

Check out my Instagram for updates on my California trip and I'll try to do a new blog post before I leave and of course a blog post about the delish food in California!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
