I know black bean brownies have been around forever but what about BLACK BEAN BROWNIE COOKIES?! ? To make it even better, how about have them as Nicecream Sandwich rolled in Cacao Brown Rice Crisps?! You get fudgy, creamy, and crunch within one bite!
These cookies only require 5 ingredients! The entire icecream sandwich is vegan, GF, non-GMO and refined sugar free, plus everything in this recipe was ORGANIC! Full recipe is at the end but first I want to talk a little about why I always choose organic produce whenever availability permits. The reasons are simple, organic farming is better and safer for 1. Yourself; and 2. Our planet. Lots of harmful chemicals such as fungicides, herbicides and insecticides are used in conventional farming and the residues remain in the food we eat. Those chemicals are linked to serious diseases from respiratory problems to cancer, and can even cause birth defects. On top of that, the agricultural chemicals are poisoning the soil, water, and even the birds and other animals who live near farms!
*#sponsored When @onedegreeorganics challenged me to create a healthy summer dessert I knew I wanted to find the perfect balance between my sweettooth and my NO BS (bad stuff) eating principle. I was so excited to find out that they’re USDA organic, certified gluten-free, non-GMO and they only source ingredients from farmers they’ve personally met and vetted! With the safe and clean ingredients, I give you the bomb recipe below.
