I feel like my kitchen switches from pumpkin over to peppermint in a matter of days. The tree is up. Cards are mailed. Presents purchased and now it’s time to start baking pepperminty good treats. Actually, healthy vegan and gluten free treats that are protein-packed for recovering muscles. Swimming is underway and my voracious daughter craves protein-packed snacks before and after practices plus after running and cycling we all need protein. These are great for on-the-go eating. Plus, they are healthy and no one will know the better.
Now I know there are like a million and one black bean brownie recipes out there but these are just a decadent little bites packed with mint flavor. Go big or go home and I went big with the flavor. Plus I just received some new VegaOne protein powder that I wanted to give a whirl in a not-so-traditional smoothie recipe and it worked perfectly!!! Ohhhh I may need to step away from the brownies or go for another run. Ha!
