This recipe is genius, if I do say so myself. Not only do my girls LOVE it, but it's a great way to get them to eat almost 4 grams of protein (plus 1.3 g of healthy fats and 3.4 g of fiber in each 90-calorie serving). I tell them it's (bean) cake time and they go crazy, every time. Plus if you add the protein powder frosting and gluten-free organic sprinkles, you add an extra 1.5 g of vegan protein. Woo hoo!
This recipe won't slow you down; in fact, it'll keep you energized and full for hours. Perfect for mom life, your dance class, work, and all that jazz. Plus, it's super quick and easy to make, which if you haven't noticed, is a trend in my recipes. #Twinmom status, okay?
I admit when I went to type this recipe down, I thought I was going crazy. I could have sworn I had already typed it out and posted it somewhere but I couldn't find it. Perhaps I was thinking of my recent luscious Chickpea Chip Cookie recipe. Regardless, this is another melt-in-your-mouth nourishing treat you absolutely must make.
