Healthy Brownie Batter
Secretly Healthy Brownie Batter — delicious and safe to eat raw because it’s made without eggs. You’d never know it’s sugar free, low fat, high protein, and gluten free too!
Oh my gosh.
Oh my gosh.
Oh my gosh.
Confession time! Okay, so, I used to eat Tollhouse cookie dough straight out of the tub… the 36oz tub… from Costco (yes, that cookie dough) and not only was that fairly dangerous from a possible salmonella contamination, it was unhealthy from the insane amount of sugar, processed flour and trans fats. I won’t get into the nitty gritty, but just trust me, this Healthy Brownie Batter is sooo much better!
Like, 1237.5x better.
First off, it’s chocolate flavored (woohoo!)
Second, it’s eggless, therefore safe to eat raw.
Third, it’s low fat and sugar free, not to mention high fiber due to its secret ingredient: black beans!
(Don’t worry, you don’t taste them at all)
Once you take a bite you will completely forget that it’s good for you. This is just so good. Super thick and fudgy like brownie batter, super oaty and chewy like cookie dough.
- 55g (½ cup + 1 tbs) Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
- 64g (2 scoops) Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
- 48g (¼ cup) Granulated Erythritol (or sweetener of choice)
- 10g (2 tbs) Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder
- ¼ tsp Instant Coffee
- ⅛ tsp Salt
- 1 15oz can Black Beans (drained and rinsed well; ~1½ cups beans)
- ¼ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 64g (¼ cup) Natural Almond Butter
- ½ tsp Liquid Stevia Extract
- ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
In a large bowl, add stir together the oats, protein powder, erythritol, cocoa powder, instant coffee, and salt.
In a blender, puree together the beans, almond milk, almond butter, stevia extract, and vanilla extract. Scoop this mixture over the dry ingredients and stir together. And you're done! For best texture, cover and refrigerate overnight, but you can serve it immediately with chocolate chips if you wish.
PS: I was selfish and kept about half (okay, a little more than half) for myself in the fridge for a snack the next day. I didn’t know it was possible, but it gets better! The batter tasted more chocolatey and the texture was even fudgier… if that’s a word? Anyways, if you have enough self control to have this in the fridge all night I recommend doing so. Or you can do what I did: double-wrap the entire container in tin foil so you can’t see/smell/scoop into it with ease.
And did you see the nutrition facts?! Awesome right?? Definitely not something you’d see on the back of a Tollhouse cookie dough tub… and I should know… 😉
With love and good eats,
