Believe it or not these flourless brownies, with lots of protein and fiber are irresistible. When your parents or even grandchildren see you enjoying these they will know that this isn’t the usual chalky drink stuff, but a real treat. In fact, it can be a party, a nutritional one!
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1 c. unsalted butter
2 c. canned black beans, drained well
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
2 scoops Chocolate Herbalfe Meal Replacement Powder.
1 c. walnuts, chopped
1/4 c. instant coffee grounds
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 c. light agave syrup
Preheat the oven to 325. Line a baking pan (11×13) with parchment paper.
Melt the chocolate and butter in a glass bowl in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Once melted completely, stir with a spoon. Place the beans, 1 scoop meal replacement
powder, the vanilla extract, and 4 or 5 spoonfuls of the melted chocolate
mixture into the food processor. Blend until the beans are very smooth.
In a large bowl, mix together the walnuts and 1 more scoop Prograde Protein
powder. Add the remaining melted chocolate mixture, coffee grounds, and salt.
In a separate bowl, with a mixer, beat the eggs until light, about a minute. Add
the agave syrup, and beat well. Set aside.
Add the 3 separate bowls (bean and chocolate mixture, coffee and chocolate
mixture, and egg mixture) together. Blend well. Pour into your prepared pan.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until the brownies are set. Let cool in the pan
completely before cutting into squares. Better yet, let these cool, and then
refrigerate, and they cut even easier.
Nuts may be substituted or omitted. (but what are brownies without walnuts)
Also, coffee can easily be omitted and it may be best to do so if that is an issue. I make them without it and they are great.
