{Black Bean Avocado Chocolate Chip Fudge Brownies}

That's a mouthful!!! Made these brownies today....they are gluten free and low fat (good fats).

I tweaked this recipe slightly to my needs, but the original recipe can be found HERE.
I replaced the olive oil with coconut oil, I added a jar of baby food carrots and 1 scoop of Shaklee protein powder. I also topped it with 3 T. chocolate chips and walnuts.

and here is the proof that I used black beans and avocado....

Doesn't it look delish? I licked the spoon by the way :)

 digging right in....

mine aren't as fluffy as the original recipe...probably because of my additions, but here goes...

Okay...so the batter was wonderful! But TBH- the brownie, to me, was good. It does have a black bean aftertaste and they aren't very sweet. But I'm in love! When you can't have the real thing (because of gluten) and you are trying to be good (lose weight) then anything close is a plus! They are healthy and satisfied my craving for chocolate...just try it and see what you think.

  1. I pinned a brownie recipe that used almond butter, maple syrup, cocoa and few other ingredients. I left out the egg, because of allergies and they came out fudgy and super yummy. Tasted just like a brownie, no gluten.
