Greek Yogurt Heart Bites

These Strawberry and Yogurt bites were a perfect recipe that I made for a lot of valentine treats this past February! Not only do adults and teens love them, but the kids do too! This is also a simple recipe that the kids can be involved in too. This recipe was provided from Produce For Kids (http://produceforkids.com/) They have amazing recipes for kids to make on here!!

Black Bean Brownies

Looking for a delicious new dessert with added protein? This is a FANTASTIC dessert to sneak those beans in for kids and picky eaters! I have made these plenty of times and I have had such great feedback on how people don’t even taste or realize that the beans are in them! This is a gluten free recipe… and they’re definitely worth trying!

Makes 16 servings

  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8×8 pan. Place beans in food processor and process until mashed. Add eggs, vanilla, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, sugar and oil. Process until smooth. Pour into pan and sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
