For the past week I have been on a diet and exercise plan. I have been sticking to it surprisingly well! It’s definitely been a challenge though when it comes to giving up sweets on a diet. I have joined the T25 exercise community which is amazing! It’s a video set for a 10 week program aimed to build strength, muscle and help me shed those stubborn pounds. So far I love it, and I have never said that I’ve loved any exercise program before. With this plan comes healthy eating of course. Healthy eating doesn’t mean give up total treats when you make them the right way. I found a wonderful recipe on the T25 website that I had to try to allow me to enjoy some sort of chocolate treat without ruining my diet. Well, to my surprise these little flourless brownie cupcakes are not only delicious, but packed with fiber and protein! There is an ingredient which I never thought of putting in a cupcake.( scroll down to see ingredients) I did tweak the recipe abit and it still came out yummy! I am going to post the link to the original recipe next to mine. If your looking for something sweet and your on a diet, please try these. You too will be happily surprised!
