Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies (Low Carb) Rich tasting chocolate brownies that are made with black beans? Yes, its possible! These are delicious, high in fiber, and its very tough to detect there is black beans in them.
  • 1 19oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed well
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg whites (or ¼ cup of carton egg whites)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅔ cup stevia baking formula (or approx 15 packets of stevia or sugar or substitute of choice)
  • ¼ cup butter, melted (or vegan margarine for dairy-free)
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp all natural peanut butter
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray and 8×8 inch pan with oil.
  3. Blend all ingredients (except butter) in a food processor or powerful blender until very well blended. You may need to scrape the sides and blend again.
  4. When its just about finished processing, add in the melted butter. Then fold in the chocolate chips by hand with a wooden spoon or spatula.
  5. Spread into the prepared pan.
  6. Place spoonfuls of peanut butter on top of the batter. Using a knife, swirl in the peanut butter to make a marbling effect.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes until set around the outside and in the middle. It will just start to crack. Don't test with a toothpick, as it won't come out clean. You want them to be fudge-like anyway!
  8. Cool completely and cut into 16 squares. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
They taste the best when they are completely chilled. I like to make them ahead of time to allow them to cool completely.
