Flourless Brownie

I am really trying to cut out flour and basically carbs in my life. Pinterest is the place to go if you are trying to find sweets that are healthy. I always tweaking a little. I am finding the courage to tweak the recipes. This one is from the blog Gina’s Skinny Recipes (http://www.skinnytaste.com/2014/04/pb2-flourless-chocolate-brownies.html#more) I love the name of her url, Skinnytaste.com. Really it may be skinny but it is not tasteless 🙂

 

Here is the recipe adapted:

Ingredients:

  • applesauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 cup PB2
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Spray a nonstick 9 x 9 inch baking pan with cooking spray. Beat the egg and egg white in a small bowl with a whisk. In a large bowl combine the PB2, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and mix well with a spatula. Add the egg and egg whites and stir. Add water, honey, vanilla, applesauce and stir with a spatula until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. It will be a thicker batch of brownies. Spread the mixture into the prepared baking pan and bake about 25 to 30 minutes. Cut and store 🙂

I used applesauce, this made them super moist. I read through people’s comments talking about PB2 powder and the sugar. I looked the ingredients in my all natural peanut butter and it had sugar in it too. The sugar added on the PB2 label was 2g and the all natural peanut butter had the same amount. It truly did not make a difference to me. I love this powered peanut butter 🙂

 

These do not taste like boxed brownies or like really sugared up brownies, but they are a great sub for healthy eating.
