To Die For Dark Chocolate GF Brownie Bites - Health Meets Happiness

Monday, October 22, 2012

Hello Friends,

How was your Monday? Did you get your sweat on? My first sweat session of the day took place in this beautiful place!

Yep, this girl ran the heck out of some stadiums in the beautiful fall weather! Can you believe they will just let you in there to have at the bleachers? I couldn't when I first got here. I absolutely love running bleachers. I know, that's kind of sick, but I love how challenging they are! What about you? Do you incorporate bleachers into your workouts? Next up on the agenda was a strength training class, followed by kickboxing, and then Booty Barre! My booty is going to be good and sore tomorrow! :)

I refueled with my new favorite chocolaty treat. Ok, not really. I really had a taco salad with black beans and gallons of salsa for dinner, but I did enjoy one of these guys for dessert!

I have been craving chocolate lately and brownies are my all time favorite chocolaty treat, so I decided to create my own GF chocolate brownie. It turned out better than I could have ever hoped. The dark chocolate made them extra rich, the pumpkin and apple sauce kept them extremely moist, and the Greek yogurt and egg whites pumped up the protein. Here is the line up of ingredients.

That's a pretty All Star lineup if you ask me. The first step is to mix your oats and coconut flour in a food processor.

Next, pour the the dry mixture in a large bowl and add remaining ingredients. It should form a thick brownie like batter.

Line your mini muffin tin with paper liners and scoop 1 tbsp of batter into each one. Try not to eat all of the batter before you get it into the muffin tin. I know it's hard! The bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

I promise you will not be disappointed in these little beauties! It is taking all of my will power not to eat the entire batch in one sitting!
