  3. Process until the dates are broken down into small pieces.
  4. Next, add the coconut oil and vanilla extract. Process again until the date mixture becomes slightly smooth.
  5. Now, add the cocoa powder and process again! Stop and scrape down your bowl and then process again. This make take 2-4 minutes depending on your food processor. You are looking for a fairly smooth mixture.
  6. Now it’s time to roll our truffles! Prep a sheet tray with parchment paper and set out on your work surface. Also, grab a bowl and fill it with water to help keep the filling from sticking to your hands.
  7. Scoop out 1/2 tbsp of filling, wet your hands with the water and roll into ball shape, then place onto your parchment paper tray. Continue until all the truffle filling has been rolled.
  8. Next, pop the tray of truffle balls into the freezer to firm up for 15 minutes.
  9. Before you get the truffles out of the freezer, make the chocolate coating
  10. In a microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave for 25 second intervals, stirring in between each interval, until the chocolate is melted.
  11. Get your toppings ready and set out next to the melted chocolate
  12. Pull the tray of truffle balls out of the freezer.
  13. Dip each truffle ball into the melted chocolate and using a fork, roll the chocolate around and then let some of the chocolate drip off before popping back onto the parchment paper. While the chocolate is still melty, add a sprinkle of your topping of choice.
  14. Continue with the remaining truffles until they are all coated and topped!
  15. Pop the truffles into the fridge to let the chocolate set up and harden for at least 10 minutes.
  16. Enjoy these little bites of chocolate goodness!

Black Bean Brownies with Peanut Butter Swirl


  • Author: Amy RD, LDN
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 16 Brownies 1x

Description

Black Bean Brownies are fudgy and rich with a hint of peanut butter, a delicious dessert!


Ingredients

Units Scale

Brownie Batter:

  • 1 Can, 15 oz Black Beans, Drained and Rinsed (no, or low-sodium if you can find it)
  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Espresso Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 cup Oat Flour
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips

Peanut Butter Swirl:

  • 1/2 cup PBFit Peanut Butter Powder
  • 45 tbsp Soy Milk (or milk of your preference)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350° F and spray an 8×8 inch pan with nonstick spray, then set aside.
  2. To the bowl of a food processor, add the black beans and maple syrup. Process until smooth.
  3. Next, add the two eggs and process again.
  4. Then, add the olive oil, espresso powder, salt, baking powder, cocoa powder and oat flour and process again to combine all ingredients.
  5. Next, remove the blade from the food processor, scrape down the batter and add the chocolate chips, stirring with a spatula.
  6. Then, pour the batter into your prepared pan and set aside while you make the peanut butter swirl.
  7. To a medium size bowl, add the PBFit and 5 tablespoons of milk. Whisk together. The consistency should be a little thinner than regular peanut butter. If it is too thick, add another tablespoon of milk.
  8. To make the swirl, drop dollops of the PBFit mixture onto the brownie batter, spreading them evenly over top of the batter. Then, using a butter knife, start from one corner and drag the knife through the batter and PB from one end of the pan to the other. Continue going back and forth until you reach the other side of the pan. Then, rotate the pan 90 degrees to create swirls in the other direction. Again, start from one corner and go up and back, snaking your way across the batter. Continue until you get the look that you like.
  9. Place the brownies into the oven and bake for 20 minutes until they are set.
  10. Allow brownies to cool for 15 minutes before digging in. Enjoy!
