Chocolate, there are just some things we can't live without!
Have you ever made brownie batter, and then realized that you'd rather just eat the raw brownie batter instead of baking it, so....you eat 1/2 of the raw brownie batter and then realize you no longer have enough batter to make the brownies, so....you just put the other half of the batter in the fridge for tomorrow!?? Well, after you have eaten the brownie batter, you probably realize how you just undid all of your workouts and healthy eating for the past couple of weeks and then beat yourself up about it...
To quench your brownie batter craving (or chocolate craving, or craving for something sweet and decadent), I have put together the below guilt-free recipe that you can whip up in just 10 minutes. Use this recipe as a foundation to build upon and create your own sweet treats that satisfy your personal taste and cravings. Just make sure that if you add ingredients to this recipe, they are in line with your health & fitness goals!
Brownie Batter Bowl: *Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Grain-free, Egg-free, Low-sugar
- 2 tbsp organic Almond flour
- 2 tbsp organic Coconut flour
- 1 tbsp organic Ground Flax seed
- 1 tbsp organic Chia seed
- 2 tbsp organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
- 2 tbsp organic Raw Cacao or organic Baking Cocoa
- 2 tsp of organic vanilla extract
- 1-2 dashes of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
- 4-5 mini spoons of organic Pure Stevia Extract Powder
Start with 1 cup of water in a small 2-3 quart saucepan. Turn heat on low-medium. Add the almond flour, coconut flour, and ground flax seed and stir until mixed thoroughly. Then add in water (a tablespoon at a time) until a cream of wheat or cupcake batter consistency is achieved. Now add in the rest of the ingredients, adding water as needed to maintain a cupcake batter consistency. Do a taste test before turning off stovetop heating element. Add salt or stevia to your liking, the more coconut oil you use, the creamy it will be. Pour brownie batter into your favorite bowl. This recipe makes two servings, so either share with a worthy soul or eat half and save the rest for tomorrow! Whatever you do, please don't eat the brownie batter right before doing the workout below....it won't end pretty...
P.S. - you can make this batter and pour it into a cupcake pan and then bake at 350F degrees in an oven for about 10 minutes to make actual brownies. Or make pancakes or waffles with the mix. If you opt to bake the mix or cook up pancakes or waffles, I would add in 1-2 tsp baking soda (and 1-2 more tablespoons of coconut oil - for brownies only) to make the turn out better! OR...you can take the brownie batter (recipe as-is above) and throw it in the freezer and in about four hours you have some pretty amazing brownie batter ice cream...
100 Rep Burpee Challenge:
Warm-up:Do jumping jacks for 1-2 minutes.
Burpee Challenge: Perform 100 reps of BURPEES!! My tip is to do 10 reps at-a-time until you reach 100 reps.
The key to this workout is to take it one move at-a-time. Tackle each burpee with passion, and tackle in sets of 10 reps at-a-time, until you get to 100 reps. Then move onto the bonus round if you dare! Your arms, bum, abs & heart rate will be on fire when you are done!
Bonus round:Grab a jump rope and jump rope for 5 intervals of 45 seconds jumping rope and 15 seconds rest (5 minutes total).
Push yourself, but remember, always modify any workout routine to your preference, skill level, and for your individual health & fitness goals.
