We use brownies for midday snacks and lunch box treats. With their high protein and fiber from SunFlour, they quickly take the hunger edge off and last. We use a low glycemic (GI35) organic coconut palm sugar which is delightfully sweet and keeps blood sugar down. Compare eating these to other snacks without protein and you’ll notice the difference in how long you stay full. The natural cocoa powder we use will give you an additional mineral boost of zinc, magnesium, iron and manganese to support immunity.
Mixing — Mix wet ingredients (egg, melted butter or grape seed oil or coconut oil and vanilla extract) and then pour in 1 bag of Think.Eat.Live. Brownie Mix. Mix with spatula until the batter is smooth. For best results, sift the mix into the bowl.
Important Baking Tip — Metal or aluminum brownie pans work better than glass pans. The glass pans don’t transfer the heat as well and you will need to bake the brownies longer (10 extra minutes) to cook them all they way through.
Oil the pan – Spray the baking pan with a baking oil to keep the brownies from sticking.
Cooling – Cool for 30 mintues; They are still very enjoyable if you can’t wait!
Portion size – Cut into 9 pieces to get a perfect snack portion size (5g protein, 3 g fiber, under 200 calories).
Storing – Store in baggie in freezer or refrigerator. Will last up to 1 week in refrigerator. They thaw very easily and are tasty with or without reheating.
