Vitality Brownies (w/ juicing fiber)
Time Required: 10 (35 min. total)

The battle to eat well rages on all over the land, and even in my house. “Something with vegetable fiber in it is not a brownie”, they cry, but I reply, “Champions don’t feed their bodies the ingredients like in the desserts you are looking for.”  Always a decision.  Do you want to be healthy, look good, feel good…it happens one decision at a time, and finally those decisions become habits. This brownie choice uses the leftover fiber from juicing fresh vegetables, raw honey for maximum nutrients and flax for fiber and omega 3 oil.


2 egg(s)
2 1/2 cup(s) vegetable juicing fiber
2 tsp vanilla extract
8 stevia packet(s) -- individual serving sizes
3/4 cup(s) honey
1 cup(s) dates -- diced
3/4 cup(s) flax gel -- half flax meal and half water-set 5 mins.
1/2 cup(s) cocoa powder
2 1/2 cup(s) flour -- preferably gluten free
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup(s) walnuts -- or other chopped nut
1/2 cup(s) chocolate chips -- more or less as desired for sweetness


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place eggs, vanilla and juicing fiber in blender and puree until mostly smooth.  Spoon out into mixing bowl.

2.  Add stevia, honey, dates and flax gel (made from flax meal and water) to the mixing bowl and mix at high speed until well blended.

3. Sprinkle cocoa, flour, baking soda and salt on top and combine all. Add nuts and chocolate chips; mix just until combined.

4. Pat batter into bottom of greased 13x9 pan. Bake 22-25 minutes; brownies will not pull away from sides as others do.  Let cool then cut.

Frosting: If you feel like compromising a bit, these take on a whole new flavor when frosted with chocolate frosting, and you might draw in some of the more reluctant eaters! I keep them plain and eat way too many.
