Make It Monday: Clean Eating Brownies

This 9x9 pan of clean eating brownies packs in 118g of protein in the entire pan (more of less depending upon your protein powder, mine has 15g of protein per scoop.) In each of the 9 servings in this pan, there is over 13 grams of protein per serving. Also, there is almost 7 grams of fiber each serving too. These make up a cake-like brownie.

4 T unsweetened baking cocoa
2 T chia seeds
1/4 C whole wheat flour
1/4 C oat flour

pinch of salt
1 can (15 oz) black beans (drained, rinsed & pureed)
1/4 C coconut oil (melted)
6 oz container of plain unsweetened greek yogurt
1/2 tsp pure almond extract
