These rich and fudgy black bean protein brownies are the perfect treat when you have that chocolate craving! This healthy snack/dessert is entirely flourless, gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and nut-free. Naturally sweetened with maple syrup and filled with antioxidants, these delicious protein brownies only require a few minutes of your time.
I love bringing these to a family gathering and not telling anyone that they are made out of beans. The look on their face is absolutely priceless! It's hard to believe that you can make this popular dessert so much more healthy and still taste great!
Gone are the days when you have to deny yourself the foods that you want! My recommendation is just to spend the time to find a healthier alternative. With the high protein and healthy fats in this recipe, you won't find yourself nursing a sugar hangover afterwards.
Show yourself some love by nourishing it with foods that make you feel GOOD!
