Snacks don't have to be unhealthy and full of calories. In fact, having two healthy snacks between meals boosts your metabolism and helps you keep your energy levels up. For a snack to be filling and nutritious, it should be high in protein with a few complex carbs and healthy fats. Snacks don't have to be complicated - some contain just one ingredient. Don't avoid snacks, just choose the right ones!

1. Black Bean Brownies

You will never notice the beans in the taste, but you will get all the nutrition benefits. Beans are high in protein, and just 1 cup of black beans has 15 grams of protein and 15 grams of fiber. These brownies are naturally sweet, moist and gluten-free. Just blend together one can of drained black beans, 1/2 cup of cocoa powder, 4 tbsp. of melted coconut oil, 3/4 cup raw honey, two tsp stevia, three eggs, ½ cup gluten-free flour (on any flour you prefer) and ¼ cup of water. Bake for 40 min. at 350 degrees and enjoy!
