Peppermint Black Bean Brownies


Hello PumpUp readers! I’m back for another monthly blog post. It’s been super fun getting to know the PumpUp community and reading and watching your inspiring stories. I’m so happy that The Healthy Maven and PumpUp are able to collaborate!

With the holidays just around the corner, I thought I would share a healthy Christmas recipe with you. I know how tough it can be to enjoy the holidays while also trying to live a healthy and active lifestyle. All the holiday decadence and drinks are not exactly conducive to meeting your health goals.

That’s why I’ve devised a plan of action. Bring your own healthy treats! BYOHT if you will. What’s my go-to healthy treat? My Peppermint Black Bean Brownie recipe! It’s always a crowd-pleaser, is high in protein and has no refined sugars or flour. Best part is that no one will know they’re eating beans! I’ve tricked many people into eating these brownies and not one has guessed the secret ingredient.

So for the next holiday party you’re attending or hosting try making these Peppermint Black Bean Brownies. I’d love to know if any of your friends or family can figure out there’s beans hidden in them!

Happy Holidays!
