Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Brownies

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Brownies

My first attempt at black bean brownies was such a success, that I decided to try out different flavor combinations. I am obsessed with nut butter, so it was only natural to do a chocolate and peanut butter combination for these protein brownies. I basically took my original chocolate fudge black bean brownies recipe and just tweaked it. I know the idea of adding beans to a dessert seemed very strange and possibly disgusting to some people,  but I promise you that you will be missing out on a delicious dessert if you do not try these! Not only do these chocolate peanut butter protein brownies taste delicious, but you can not taste the beans in the slightest and they are a low glycemic/low sugar/high protein dessert. The prep time is under 5 minutes and the recipe is fool-proof! Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Gather all ingredients, a baking pan, a blender/food processor, and a large spoon. Drain the water from the black beans and rinse well with water. Add all ingredients, except the chocolate chips and 1 1/2 tbsp peanut butter, into the food processor and blend together for at least 1 minute. Make sure you scrape the sides of the processor and blend until all ingredients are very smooth. Spray a pan with pam cooking spray (I used 13 x 9, but use 8 x 8 for thick brownies) and pour the brownie batter into the baking pan. If you want to add a little more chocolate to the brownies, sprinkle 2-3 tbsp of dark or milk-chocolate chips over the batter. Put remaining 1 1/2 tbsp peanut...
Gluten-Free Red Velvet Brownies

Gluten-Free Red Velvet Brownies

It’s Valentines Day and I felt the need to make a pretty dessert in honor of the holiday! These are extremely healthy, gluten-free, and delicious brownie sandwiches that are super fun to make! Gather all ingredients, a food processor, a baking pan, and a spoon.   Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drain the beans and rinse well. Add all “brownie” ingredients to the food processor and blend until all ingredients are well blended and smooth.   Spray a baking pan with pam cooking spray and pour the gluten-free brownie batter into the pan. Make sure to spread the batter well with a spoon. Bake the gluten-free brownies on 350 degrees for 17-20 minutes, depending on your oven. Check the center of the brownies with a toothpick to make sure the brownies are fully cooked. Let the brownies sit and cool for a few minutes and then cut shapes out of the brownies. While the brownies are cooking, make the cream cheese frosting for the brownies. Place in the freezer until ready for use. Once the brownie shapes are completely cooled, add a large dollop of icing to the top of one brownie cut-out, and then top with another similar brownie cut-out. Continue this process until you have used up all cut-outs. For additional yumminess…add a drizzle of melted dark chocolate! Enjoy!! DO NOT LET THE LEFT OVER BROWNIES GO TO WASTE!!! Crumble them up and trifle the ingredients!...
