Nutritional Insights 

Often times people reach for sweets as a ‘pick-me-up’ or in response to emotional discomfort. Well, if its chocolate you’re reaching for, your body might just be reaching for the benefits of Pure Cacao. Unfortunately though, most chocolate products are more sugar than anything else AND contain cocoa rather than raw cacao. As a result you might get a little lift from the sugar, followed quickly by a crash, and overtime dysregulated blood sugars creating a vicious cycle. Cacao however, is packed full of nourishing goodies, one of those being a good dose of magnesium. Magnesium is needed for over 300 enzymatic reactions going on within the body, everyday and many of us are deficient. Think regulating the nervous system, proper energy production, regular bowel motions, contraction and relaxation of muscles, and so on! Cacao’s nutrient, mineral and phytochemical profile is the perfect addition to minimise flatness and fatigue and promote feelings of wellbeing, happiness, and contentment.

Black beans are a nutritionally dense dietary staple and hiding them in this brownie is a great way to dose up. They offer another 16g of protein to this recipe, as well as fibre, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. 

This recipe is refined sugar free, using only a little pure maple syrup and the monk fruit (Luo Han Kuo fruit) from the Bone Broth Protein Powder for its sweetness. Monk fruit is said to be up to 200 times sweeter than sugar and this unique sweetness is a result of a natural compound, mogrosides. With no refined sugar and plenty of protein, you can expect all the deliciousness without the blood sugar dysregulation!  

Between the 1/2 cup of Bone Broth Protein Powder, 2 eggs, and 1 can of black beans, this recipe contains approximately 127g of protein! We cut it up into about 12 squares, making for about 10g protein per serve!
