If you have a sweet tooth, but don't want to jeopardize your clean eating, I highly recommend you try out this brownie recipe. As I cut all of the sugars from my diet, I had to find new ways to satisfy my sweet tooth. This was particularly difficult during competition prep, when my coach wouldn't even allow me to eat fruit! This recipe uses ingredients that have a high protein content (eggs and protein powder), does not contain sugar, gluten, or lactose. This brownie is completely safe to eat - even during contest prep!!!! I promise you'll want to eat this brownie for breakfast... Except you won't be feeling any guilt!
A measure of protein powder (the product I use called bone broth protein - it is high in collagen and does not contain dairy - see link below)
A TBSP of coconut flour (I like Bob Red Mill's, see link below)
2 TBSP of monk fruit sweetener (My favorite sweetener! Tastes like sugar - see link below)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup cashew milk (or any other 'milk' alternative soy, almonds, etc.)
Optional ingredients: 1tbsp of nut butter, and 1 teaspoon of Lakanto chocolate powder. These ingredients make the brownie extra yummy - but it depends if you can afford the added fats or not.
Mix the egg and the cashew milk in the mug. If you are adding peanut butter start mix it in with the egg mixture. It won't dissolve completely, but that's ok. Mix in the dry ingredients in the mug till you achieve a homogeneous dough. Microwave it for anywhere between 60 seconds and 1 minute and 20 seconds (some microwaves take a little longer - you may have to play with yours and see).
