Flour-Less Brownies

Posted: Updated:

It's time again for some Healthy Eating! NewsCenter1's Anya Mueller makes some moist, chocolatey brownies that are low fat and gluten free. And she says they also taste pretty good. 


Total Time: 45 minutes

Servings: 16

One 14 ounce canned low-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained

2 large eggs

1/2 cup cocoa powder

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon oil

1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk (or dairy, skim)

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground coffee or instant coffee

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, divided (Hershey's)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a nonstick 9 x 9-inch square baking pan with baking spray and line with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on all sides.

Blend the black beans, eggs, cocoa powder, sugar, oil, almond milk, balsamic, baking soda, baking powder and coffee in the blender until smooth and pour into a bowl. Fold in 1/2 cup chocolate chips until combined.

Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips evenly over the top of the brownies. Bake the brownies until a toothpick comes out clean, about 30 to 32 minutes. Allow the brownies to cool completely before slicing them into squares.
