1 can black beans, drained and rinsed (315g)
3 scoops (120g) BPN Chocolate Peanut Butter Whey Protein Powder
3/4 cup (60g) unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 whole eggs
6 tbsp. (84g) light butter*
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
1/4 cup (40g) brown sugar/erythritol blend sweetener**
1/4 cup (40g) granular erythritol**
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
Peanut Butter Swirl
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp. (75g) peanut flour
1/4 cup (60g) water
1/4 cup (56g) light butter
2 tbsp. (20g) erythritol sweetener (or powdered sugar)
*Light butter can be found where regular butter is. It has about ⅓ the fat and calories of regular butter. If you can’t find it, regular butter or coconut oil can be substituted.
**Erythritol is a sugar free sweetener. It can be found in the baking aisle. I use a brand called Swerve, which is sugar free and tastes/bakles just like sugar.
- Preheat the oven to 325F.
- Add all brownie ingredients except for chocolate chips to a food processor. Process until a smooth batter forms. Add chocolate chips and pulse a few times to incorporate.
- Line an 8x8 glass baking dish with parchment paper. Pour batter into baking dish and spread evenly with a spatula.
- Mix all peanut butter swirl ingredients in a bowl. Make sure to whisk well so it is smooth. Add dollops of peanut butter mixture on top of the brownie batter. Use a sharp knife to swirl into the batter.
- Bake at 325F for 35-40 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. I like to leave the center slightly undercooked so that the rest of it does not dry out.
- Cut into 12 brownies and enjoy!
