GymKitchen: Black Bean Brownies Recipe

I know what you’re thinking. Black beans in brownies? Yes. It works! Below is a really simple recipe to make them. The trick is to cook up your own batch of black beans from dry. It’s only 11 net carbs a serving. If you use canned beans, the brownie won’t be as dense, plus it will have more preservatives.

Here’s a List of Ingredients:Black Bean Brownies nutrition fact sheet by Oh Fitness LLC

1 cup black beans (cooked from dry)
1 cup plain rolled oats (dry)
1 cup low carb protein powder ( I like Pure Protein )
1 cup egg whites
1/2 cup soymilk
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 
1/4 cup toffee Stevia or your favorite artificial sweetener ( I still like the taste of Splenda the best)

NEXT: Blend all ingredients until smooth, & bake at 320F for 30-35 minutes.

Directions: Blend all ingredients until smooth. I used my Vitamix to do this. Next, pour into a 8x8x1 7/8 inch square cake pan & bake at 320F for 30-35 minutes. Then let cool. The brownies are a bit puffed up as soon as they come out of the oven, but they will flatten out, get more dense & darken up after cooling. Lastly, cut 16 squares as shown…couldn’t help myself…I ate & shared some before I took the last pic LOL SMH!!! Happy #gymkitchen eating : )
