I kid you not this recipe took me a grand total of about 8 attempts to make the perfect fudgy brownies, some too dry, some tasting down right disgusting and some more of a cake then a brownie. But, behold, I finally mastered the recipe and they taste unbelievable, about time too, because believe it or not, I was starting to get sick of eating brownies and so was the rest of my family!
These brownies are fudgy, thick, gooey, with an amazing crinkly outer crust. If you are looking fo the ultimate healthy flourless brownie then you have come to the right place. Whats even better… they are oh so simple to whip up.
The problem I find with most ‘healthy’ brownie recipes is they are less like a brownie and most are a sweet, dry cake, which may only be 100 calories but id rather save those 100 calories for something worth while. These brownies do not disappoint, at just under 200 calories per portion, these healthy brownies will have you coming back for more and more.
These brownies are super easy to make and in about half an hour you will have warm, fudgy, healthy brownies waiting for your to tuck into.
Makes: 9-12 Brownies
1 Cup Oat flour (Blend some oats)
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
225g Black beans (Drained)
50g dark chocolate
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 Large eggs
Pinch of Salt
- Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. Place all the ingredients except for the coconut oil and chocolate in a food processor and blend.
- Whilst the ingredients are blending in a bowl, melt the chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave until the chocolate has just about melted and then stir the two together.
- Add the chocolate and coconut oil mixture to the food processor and make sure everything is throughly combined. Pure this mixture into a lined baking tin and bake in the pre-heated oven for 10-15 minutes until the mixture has just about set in the middle. The less you cook them, the more gooey they will be.
- Remove from the oven and leave to cool for about 30 minutes. Chop into slices and dive in!
