These 'flourless' brownies are fantastic. I could tell they were going to be so good when I hit the button on the food processor and the batter was smooth, rich and very fudgy with a back flavor of mocha. Yum! Coffee lifts the flavor of Cocoa and since there isn't any flour to mute the cocoa... it shines!
Ingredients
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • One, 15 ounce can black beans, well rinsed & drained (dry on a paper towel)
  • ½ cup Truvia baking blend, the kind in the bag
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup Dutch cocoa - smoother, richer, less bitter
  • 1 single serving sleeve Starbucks Via, ready brew instant coffee (really puts dish over the top, buy one at Starbucks!)
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped sugar free or dark chocolate - you can also use mini bittersweet or semi sweet chips
Instructions
  1. Spray an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with vegetable oil cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Puree the black beans in food processor until fairly smooth. Scrape down sides and add Truvia, butter, vanilla and one egg. Process until very smooth. Scrape down sides and add 2 remaining eggs, cocoa, Via, baking powder, salt and chopped chocolate. Process until well blended, scraping down sides and processing to a creamy batter.
  3. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake until toothpick inserted 2 inches from center tests done, 18 to 25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into two-inch squares.

      Thank you for asking, but I don’t calculate stats on recipes. If each item in a recipe is a good bariatric choice separately, they combine into a recipe that is a good choice as well. I am serving these because they don’t have sugar and flour… so they are sugar free and VERY low in bad carbs and as a bonus contain protein from the eggs and beans. Plus they are fudgy good as all get out!

      Thank you for your comment. Truvia Baking Blend contains a small amount of sugar but so do tomatoes. It is important to keep things in perspective. Truvia blend is primarily Erythritol for volume, but a small amount of sugar is added as flavor enhancer to balance the erythritol and powerfully sweet Stevia leaf extract so it does not taste bitter. My recipe calls for so low an amount of Truvia blend that the sugar in the entire recipe is less than that of a small tomato and is easily within allowable bounds at about 3g per brownie.

      Some recipes are not worth eating when you take them down to the bare bones fat free, sugar free, no carb, no calories… and you end up with a dish of odd textured, bitter, dense, flavorless goo that NO ONE wants to eat. So I choose ingredients where we go as low as we can, but keep the finished product yummy! That’s why it has a couple tablespoons of butter as well.
