We get it, it’s summer so no one can really indulge like they do in the winter. However, that doesn’t mean cravings for some soft and scrumptious chocolate brownies don’t arise. This is a low calorie, protein filled, and gluten-free way to make a brownie. It’s quite good paired with some berries and fresh whipped cream as well. Its a nice way to satiate the desire for dessert without packing on the bathing suit nightmare’s love handles. This is a perfect addition to a BBQ menu since it will cater to all types of food restrictions and diets.
- 1 can of black beans (15.5 oz.)
- 3 eggs
- 3 tbsp. vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. instant coffee (really makes things more chocolate-y but feel free to leave out)
- 3/4 cup white sugar
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth (batter like consistency) Then pour into a non stick pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. I baked mine in a muffin pan so that I could portion out 160 calorie size/serving.
Happy Eating (and swimming), XO.
