A Healthy Brownie
I made a healthy Chocolate Brownie...
Do you believe me?
Well I did!
Not only is it gluten free it's filled with protein and fiber AND it is also right around 100 calories!
Yep it's true.
Now I won't like this brownie is not my favorite brownie on the planet. BUT it is a good brownie. The typical brownie is filled with butter and sugar. That is what makes it taste so good. I've found some healthy substitutes for the starch, fat, and reduced the sugar as well as used a natural sweetener in it's place.
If you ever find yourself in a chocolate mood but don't want the guilt of a traditional brownie. Give these a whirl. You won't be sorry!!
Black Bean and Avocado Brownies
1 15 oz can black bean drained and rinsed
1/2 an avocado

1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup of sugar
1 tbs instant coffee

In your food processor add in avocado and beans. Puree.
Scrape into the bowl of your mixing bowl, beat in eggs, honey, and peanut butter.
Once that is combined mix in the remaining ingredients. Spread into a greased 8x8 pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a tooth pick is inserted and comes out clean.
