Hey Weight Loss Nation!
Weight Loss Nation
Today is 5 Minute Snack Day!
There are soooo many Chocoholics out there! You asked for it…..and I am delivering!
I’ve got a healthy, “chocolate” snack for you today.
Remember Nation……a “healthy” brownie is NOT going to taste like a “Duncan Hines” brownie or your Mom’s favorite brownie recipe.
WHY?? Because Brownies that taste DELICIOUS are full of Sugar and chemicals! They are NOT good for you!
If you want to LIVE HEALTHY and have a Healthy Mind and Body for the rest of your life………
YOU have to start making healthier food choices.
The adage……”You are what you eat,” is 100% true!
Lets look at this from another angle……..
Do you LOVE your car or motorcycle? I’m sure you do. Would you put sugar or oil into your gas tank?
I didn’t think so. Why? Because your engine will not work properly. Your car engine needs “gasoline” to work efficiently.
YOUR Body works very similar. YOUR body needs “Glucose” to work efficiently. Each cell in your body requires “Glucose” to produce the energy your body needs to function optimally.
YOU give your cells “Glucose” when you eat FRUITS and VEGETABLES. YOU should be eating FRUITS and VEGETABLES that “Grow out of the ground or Hang from a Tree.” That’s part of the Weight Loss Nation motto.
Remember……The weight Loss Nation Motto is ….. “If it grows out of the ground, hangs from a tree, roams the Earth, flies in the sky or swims in the ocean…….Eat it!
You didn’t hear me say…..”open a box” did you?
If you eat something out of a box, it is going to have added chemicals and preservatives in it.
Those added chemicals and preservatives are NOT good for the cells in YOUR body.
Every time you “open a box” of Brownies or add sugar to a recipe, you are “FEEDING” your cells crap!
Today’s 5 minute snack is a HEALTHY Brownie snack.
It has 3 Ingredients. That’s right! THREE!
It only takes 20-30 minutes to make. You know I need easy things to make.
Will these brownies taste like your Mom’s brownies? NO.
Will these brownies taste like Duncan Hine’s or Betty Crocker brownies? NO.
Today’s “No Flour Brownies” will satisfy your “Chocolate” craving and they will have the “GLUCOSE” YOUR cells need to get your body working efficiently.
Give them a try……… You have nothing to lose…..except some weight!

If you take Beta-Blockers or other HEART Medication Please consult with your Doctor before eating Bananas. This SNACK has a large amount of Potassium in it! Potassium and Beta-Blockers don’t play well!
NO FLOUR BROWNIES
1. 3 Medium “Ripe” Organic Bananas
2. 1/2 Cup of Raw Organic Almond Butter (I use Artisana Raw Organic Almond Butter)
3. 1/4 Cup of Cacao Powder (I use Navitas Organic Cacao Powder)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Grease a small bake pan (to cut into 6-9 pieces) with “butter.” (not margarine, not Pam…..BUTTER!)
3. Mix the Bananas, almond butter and cacao powder. Use a mixer, a spoon, your hands or a blender. Just make sure the stuff is mixed good!
4. Pour the mixture into your pan. Spread it out evenly with a large spoon or spatula.
5. Place the pan in your oven and bake for 20-30 minutes. Everyone’s oven is different. Start checking the brownies at 20 minutes.
Stick a knife in the center of the pan. If the knife comes out “clean,” the brownies are done. If there is “stuff” on the knife, put it back in the oven and check it again in five minutes.
Once the Brownies are done, place them on top of the stove to cool.
After they cool, cut the brownies into 6 or 9 pieces.
Put the whole pan in the fridge until you want a “snack,” or………place each brownie in a plastic bag separately, until you want a “snack.”
