Who wants some brownies? I do! I do!

Recommended Posts

Like most girls I know, chocolate, especially chocolate Desserts are a weakness. I am no exception. My Aunt is a chocolatier and all my life chocolate was the masterpiece at all holidays, birthdays, celebrations and even at a few memorials. The answer to any of life's problems has always been "chocolate!" Followed by "wine!"

I am going to make this recipe and wanted to share it with you all. Hope it makes someone very happy!

These delightful flourless brownies can satisfy your chocolate craving with only 3 grams of carbs per serving.

    Delicious fudgy and healthy brownies made with black Beans and avocados. Sounds weird, tastes awesome! Gluten free and vegan.
    • 1 large flax egg
    • 1 - 15oz can low sodium black Beans, rinsed and drained
    • 1/2 medium to large ripe avocado
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
    • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 8×8 inch baking pan.
    2. Place flax egg, black bean, avocado, vanilla, and brown sugar and process in a food processor until smooth. Add in cocoa powder, coconut oil, baking soda, and baking powder and process again until smooth. Batter will be thick. If batter is way too thick and won't process, you can add in a tablespoon or two of almond milk. This batter needs to be very thick in order to produce fudgy brownies. Fold in chocolate chip or sprinkle onto batter then transfer to prepared pan and use a spatula to spread evenly to sides. Sprinkle top of batter with 2 tablespoons of remaining chocolate chips.< /li>
    3. Bake for 22-30 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out somewhat clean. We don't want these to dry out, but we also don't want them completely raw either! The top of the batter should be completely set and no longer jiggle. Cool pan completely on wire rack then cut into 12 bars.
    You may be able to sub the brown sugar for honey, agave or maple Syrup. I would reduce to 1/3 cup though.

    The brownies are best went made in a food processor so that beans can blend together better.

    The brownies are best when served at room temperature or cold. They should be stored in the fridge. I love eating mine chilled.

    You can also freeze these and thaw out for an easy treat.

    I like these. http://www.eatmeguiltfree.com/products/chocolate-brownie-12-pack-box

    Sweets aren't really a thing and chocolate isn't either but when you get tired of Protein shake and Quest bars they are a nice change of pace. I like that that they are portion controlled.

        Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

          Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

          I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

          Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

        3. FluffyChix

          LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

        4. sillykitty

          Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

        5. FluffyChix

          Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

        OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
        As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.
