What is the most common craving when changing your diet…???
When I started eating clean a while back I wanted to find some healthier ‘sweet’ options. One thing I have a weakness for is PASTRIES!
A good friend of mine gave me the perfect brownie recipe….which was filled with refined sugar and white flour of course. But I wanted to make a healthier alternative. Soooo I remixed the recipe and swapped refined sugar for coconut sugar, white flour for spelt flour and regular butter for plant based butter. To make this vegan swap the eggs for 6 tablespoons of Aquafaba!
A key ingredient is the Vanilla Benevita Shake It! Which adds vegetable protein, and vitamins and minerals. When mixed with water its serves as a meal replacement shake.
Enjoy and let me know what you think.
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup spelt flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- 1 packet of Vanilla Benevita Shake it!
- 3/4 cup walnuts (optional)
Grease a baking dish and coat with flour, put it aside until needed.
Mix butter, vanilla essence and sugar to a creamy consistency. Then add the eggs one by one and mix again. Add all of the dry ingredients including the walnuts and mix until well combined.
Pour the batter into the greased baking dish. Sprinkle the top with walnuts, Bake for 30 min and Voila! Cut into squares and enjoy!
