In celebration of my birthday yesterday, I made these tasty, PCOS appropriate, brownies. I highly recommend them, as they are both easy and healthy-ish. They are great for those of us with PCOS because they are grain free, and contain ZERO grams of sugar (Just be sure not to use real sugar. The recipe uses xylitol and Stevia). They are also filled with healthy fats. If you need to sneak a bit more protein into your diet (which I do), you could add a handful of walnuts or chopped almonds into the batter.
These brownies remind me of Little Debbie’s Fudge Brownies, which I happen to love! Except, of course, these brownies MUCH healthier than Little Debbie’s brownies, and you will not experience a sudden spike (and then drop) in blood sugar after eating them. This means that, not only will you not feel guilty after eating these, you also won’t feel lethargic, shaky, or insanely hungry an hour or two after eating them.
I had a wonderful birthday evening, and loved spending it with my little family. I am believing that, soon, our family will be a little less little, and that my birthday present is going to be finding out in five days that we are pregnant! (:
But even if that’s not what happens, and I find out on Monday that I am not pregnant, I will still feel so blessed. And I know God has plans for Andrew and me, and plans for our children…. Plans for hope and a future!
