Guilt Free Fudge Brownies

I’ve been doing a lot of baking lately. As danger goes, baking is a pretty safe hobby — unless we’re talking about your waistline. In an effort to not gain a million pounds in a couple of months, I’ve started taking steps toward making healthier baked goods (sometimes; nothing can curb my cupcake experimentation, though…). These brownies are a product of that experimentation. While they may taste like any other fudgy brownie, these are flourless, eggless, and devoid of artificial/refined sugars. The best part is that you can’t taste the difference!

Like, seriously. I’m picky about my chocolate goods, and you actually-factually can’t taste the difference.

These brownies are a fraction of the calories of standard fudge brownies (193 calories per brownie versus 400-600 calories), and even if you decide to have a large slice (1/9th of the pan instead of 1/16th), it’s still only around 300 calories — and a WHOLE lot of protein. Now that’s what I call good eats! To make them even better, top them with a raspberry or some strawberry slices. Are you ready to make some? Let’s hop to it!

Ingredients
1, 15 oz can Black beans, drained and rinsed very well
1/4 cup Cocoa powder
1/2 cup Quick oats
1/4 tsp Salt
1/3 cup Pure maple syrup
1/4 cup Coconut oil, melted
2 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Baking powder
2/3 cup Dark chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

After draining and rinsing your canned beans really well, toss them, the cocoa powder, the quick oats, salt, maple syrup (make sure it’s the real stuff and not corn syrup; you can sub in honey if you don’t have maple syrup), coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon, and baking powder into a food processor. Everything but the chips, toss it in and blend them together until the mixture is well-blended and the beans have been completely broken up.

Once everything is blended, mix in the chocolate chips and pour everything into a greased 8×8 baking pan. Top with more chocolate chips if you’d like, and pop it in the oven for 15-18 minutes.  Let it cool for a few minutes before cutting it, and serve warm and gooey with your favorite sliced fruit on top!

      I’m so glad you liked them enough to pass the goodness along! As someone who loves sweets and tries to eat healthy, I thought these were pretty awesome (especially since they turned out WAY less beany than I thought they would). ^_^
