Tip: the 5-minute recipe for the brownie bowl



The crap about brownies

What sucks about making brownies is the whole cooking process. Preheat the oven, heat up the kitchen, make a big mess of mixing bowls and pans, then wait half an hour while it cooks.

That’s a lot of hoops to jump through just for a snack.

So how about we switch this to a 5 minute cook time without heating up the whole damn kitchen?

Oh, I know what you’re thinking, you smug Meathead, “Maybe snacks should be hard to make so people don’t eat them all the time.” (Totally something I would say as a smug Meathead.)

Valid point, but these brownies are high in protein, low in carbohydrates (for a dessert), grain-free, and packed with nutritional benefits like your grandmother̵

7;s pumpkin pie.

Look here:

ingredients

  • 1 cup pure pumpkin puree (about half a 16-ounce can)
  • 2 scoops of chocolate Metabolic Drive® Protein
  • 2-4 tablespoons of monk fruit sweetener, stevia, splenda (or a sugar substitute of your choice)
  • pinch of salt
  • Butt loads of cinnamon

Options for extra deliciousness

  • 2 tablespoons of dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped almonds
  • Cocowhip (whipped cream with coconut oil)

Directions

  1. Mix all the ingredients together. (Not the whipped cream.)
  2. Lightly spray a separate bowl with avocado oil or another cooking oil.
  3. Pour the mixture into the oiled bowl and distribute it evenly.
  4. Put it in the microwave and zap it. Since microwaves vary, start with just 3-4 minutes and then see if they are cooked through. But if your microwave is weak, go for the full 5 minute cook time.
  5. Let it cool down a bit, then enjoy.

Note: Since this recipe doesn’t contain eggs, you can eat it slightly overcooked in the middle … for extra deliciousness.

Calories and macros

Now it will seem like a lot of calories compared to a traditional brownie, but just keep in mind that this is AN ENTIRE BOWL of brownie. And it’s as dense as a whole meal (someone having breakfast?).

If you took a traditional brownie recipe and ate a whole bowl of it, you’d be eating several times the calorie content of it. If you were to reduce this to the same size as a traditional 1 ounce brownie, the calorie content would seem like nothing as well.

Tip: can’t you eat the whole bowl? That is much! Especially if you have a girly stomach.

So try cutting the recipe in half. Use half a cup of pumpkin, a scoop of protein, and just a tablespoon of sweetener. Then shorten the microwave time to about 2-3 minutes.
