Is there any better way to disguise a vegetable than in brownie form? I don’t think so! I have to give credit to Chocolate Covered Katie for this inspiration. She used a higher glycemic flour base and made hers more of a cake, so check out her recipe too.

I love chocolate! I love peanut butter! And who doesn’t love the two mixed together?! But I am unwilling to eat a store bought Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. First off, they just taste artificial to me and coat my tongue. They are made with hydrogenated oils, which are also known as trans fats.

Chocolate, ice cream, sour candies, pastries, do you have trouble passing any of these up? Do thoughts of sugary treats come on strong and take over your thinking? Do you feel immediately happy when you first indulge then feel guilty and low right after the splurge? Sugar cravings can derail your progress in obtaining a six pack physique, but they are also a giant warning sign of underlying poor habits and/or health issues. Simply saying “use willpower” to not indulge won’t
