Healthy Tiramisu Brownies

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Fat per serving: 9.5

Calories per serving: 180

Ingredients:

Brownies:
  • one 15.5oz can Black Beans
  • 140g (1 cup) Fresh Blueberries
  • ⅓ cup Strong Brewed Coffee, room temperature
  • 1 tbs Vanilla Extract
  • ½ tsp Stevia Extract
  • 96g (½ cup) Granulated Erythritol
  • 60g (¾ cup) Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder
  • 34g (¼ cup) Sweet White Sorghum Flour
  • 21g (3 tbs) Ground Flaxseed
  • 1½ tsp Double Acting Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ½ cup No-Sugar-Added Dark Chocolate Chips
Swirl:
  • 4oz Mascarpone, room temperature
  • 2 tsp Gold Rum or Brandy
  • ¼ tsp Stevia Extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line an 8×8″ brownie pan with parchment paper both ways.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the Swirl ingredients until completely smooth and even.  Set aside.
  3. Drain the can of black beans and rinse well!  Drain off the excess water.  My beans weighed 250g after draining.
  4. In a blender or food processor, add the beans, blueberries, coffee, vanilla extract, and stevia extract.  Puree until completely smooth.
  5. In a large bowl, whisk together the erythritol, cocoa powder, sorghum flour, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and chocolate chips.  Pour the blended mixture into the bowl (scrape out as much as you can!) and fold together until completely mixed through.
  6. Scoop the mixture into the prepared pan and spread it out.  Tap the pan a few times to flatten out the brownie batter.
  7. Scoop spoonfuls of the Swirl mixture over the brownie batter and swirl it in using a toothpick.  Tap the pan a few times once again to flatten out the batter.  Bake for ~43-45 minutes, or until the mascarpone turns a nice, light golden color.  Let cool completely in the pan.
  8. Completely wrap the brownies and refrigerate overnight.  Slice the following the day.  Serve and enjoy!

Notes:

Store in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

I just died and went to heaven.

With every delicious bite, it gets harder and harder to believe these are sugar free, gluten free, whole grain, high fiber, and high protein.  I ate these brownies for breakfast 3 mornings in a row, which I find perfectly acceptable  😉

  1. I love the Tiramisu Brownies. It is very good and my mom and my family love it. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. I love LOVE LOVE this Tiramisu Brownies !!! I will most definitely be trying this out.

  3. I am beyond intrigued by the blueberries in this recipe! Are they added for sweetness? I haven’t tried a bean based brownie in a while, I’m eager to try these and see if I can sneak it past my husband!

    • It’s actually really strange, the blueberries do SO much for these brownies! You know how applesauce replaces some oil in baked goods? The blueberries do the same thing, but since they have a lower water content than applesauce, they yield a fudgier, less cakey texture. They do provide a little sweetness, but it’s mostly for the texture. Strange right??

  4. How many servings did you cut the brownies into to equal the 180 calories? I usually see 8×8 pans cut into either 12 or 16 brownies, so I wanted to double check. Thanks!

  5. This recipe looks awesome!! My step mother is from Florence so Tiramisu is a staple in my family. I’m wondering if you don’t have sorghum flour and gluten free is not important, is there a substitute flour or combination of flours that can be used? For example almond and coconut? Don’t want to mess with the fudgy texture though 🙂 Thanks!!

    • I haven’t tried subbing the sorghum flour here so you’ll have to test a substitute on your own. Coconut flour definitely wouldn’t work here, but you can try whole wheat pastry flour. I think almond flour might be a little too crumbly/oily, but then again I haven’t tried it so I’m not sure. Hope you like the brownies! 🙂

      • Hi Jess! So,I made these for Mother’s Day and I substituted almond flour with a little bit of tapioca flour…they were amazing!! Notice I said “were” cuz they are gone LOL My friends and family loved them, definitely a keeper recipe. Thanks!!

      • OMG I LOVE IT!! Thank you so much for making the recipe! Glad the substitutions worked out too. I’ve gotta give that a try now 🙂
        Happy belated Mother’s Day! <3
