CANDY CANE CHOCOLATE BROWNIES ✨ The candy cane chocolate brownies are the first of holiday recipes that I’m so excited to be sharing with you on the blog (link in bio!). I love these vegan brownies because they’re simple, delicious, and the batter can be made in one blender. 🙌🏼 These brownies also rely on chickpeas as the base, which lends some more protein, fiber, and iron to the mix. I have a blog post coming that will discuss more about how to eat intuitively throughout the holidays, but we may as well touch on it here ✨.
From my professional perspective as a Registered Dietitian, as well as my personal perspective, I see nothing wrong with the ‘healthified’ versions of certain foods, so long as they’re not seen as a direct, all-the-time replacement as the original food itself ✨ What do I mean by this? The bottom line is that these vegan brownies are delicious. They’re chocolatey, gooey, pepperminty, and have an amazing texture. But they’re not a replacement for regular brownies to me. I eat these ‘healthified’ brownies because they’re delicious, and sure, I like that there’s added protein and fiber in them. But I don’t use these as a replacement for regular brownies (vegan for me personally). I don’t feel deprived after eating them. And I don’t feel ‘good’ for eating these and ‘bad’ for eating regular vegan brownies 🤷♀️ I will be sharing holiday recipes this year that are both ‘healthified’ and ‘regular vegan’ and I love them all the same, and I hope you will too ☺️.
