The Best PMS Food

Ok ladies, let's be honest here.

How many of you crave brownies when you're PMSing?

It's the number one food that I crave. But with all my health issues, it is the least friendly food to my system.

Until now.

Whether you like a more cake-like brownie or a denser chewy brownie, I've got a recipe for you!

Happy eating!


For a cake-like brownie:

Coconut Brownies

1 cup soy-free vegan butter, softened
2 cups coconut sugar, blonde
4 eggs, organic, free-range
1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla
1.5 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
1/2 cup + 2T unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsweetened flaked coconut

In a large bowl, cream vegan butter and coconut sugar until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and cocoa; gradually beat into creamed mix just until blended. Stir in coconut. Spread into a greased 9x13" baking pan. Bake at 350* for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out with moist crumbs (do not over bake!) Cool on a wire rack.


For a dense, chewy brownie:

Katie's No Flour Black Bean Brownies

*Used Coconut Nectar in place of Maple Syrup/Agave/Honey
*Omitted the Stevia/Sugar
*We used 2/3 cup chopped Trader Joe's Organic 70% Super Dark chocolate bar in place of the chocolate chips
