It has been I while since I last posted. I was crazy busy and the problem is that I like to do a lot of things and I have difficulties setting priorities. Sounds familiar? ;-)
Anyway, I made these avocado brownies somewhere in march and I wanted to share these with you. I was looking for a good recipe, which had the right nutrients for me, my family and friends. I stumbled upon this site called "The Smoothie Lover" and BINGO, the recipe looked great.
You should definitely take a look, this blog is very nice, full of good and healthy recipes and photo's.
I chose to follow this recipe for a few reasons. It's flour free, it has a better sweetening option instead of processed sugar and it has healthy fats. I found they are especially good if you have intestinal problems like me (if I eat to much grains, my intestines get clogged). This recipe is flour free so I don't get a bloated tummy eating them. The coconut sugar has a low GI level, witch will keep your blood sugar stable. The healthy fats in the avocado, will also keep your intestines in a good condition. Extra benefit: an avocado is very nutrient dense. You can eat them every day, without to worry about calories, if you have a well balanced diet.
So it was time for me to try the recipe. You don't need a lot of ingredients. Good! Because I like to keep things simple!
I also like to give away food, so I decided to make a present for my friend Marlinde!
Luckily I could try them myself, because we planned a cozy dinner at Marlinde's!
Try them yourself, they are delicious! And don't forget to browse around The smoothie lover !
