Flour-Less Chocolate Brownies

Lets see if I can remember what I just whipped up in the kitchen....

1 - 15­ ounce can Black Beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup almond butter (I used raw almonds in the food processor)
1/3 cup Natures Hollow maple syrup
2 eggs
2 tbsp of chia seeds
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp of cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
4 pkts or 4 - 1/8 tsp of Sweetleaf (or whatever brand you like) powdered stevia
1/4 - 1/3 cup Hershey's sugar free chocolate chips


1.  Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a 8x8 inch baking dish with parchment paper and spray with coconut oil spray.

2.  In a food processor, put raw almonds in first to grind up then combine all other ingredients, except chocolate chips, and blend until batter is smooth.
Fold in chocolate chips, and then transfer batter to prepared baking dish.

3.  Spread batter evenly. Bake for 20­-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean and the top begins to brown. Cool for 20 minutes, then cut into squares to serve.
If you cut it up into 16 squares - each square has: C/11 - F/2 - S/ .3

These are so Moist and delicious!



  1. Hi Rosalie, I hear you , I have the same thing no sleep seems to be the pattern for menopause , I have tried so many teas none work, and if you go to the doctor the solution is ambien and if that doesn't work antidepressants, for me I just keep eating healthy and just started meditation which is working some but to soon to tell. Hope this sleeplessness is short term and goes away soon. Take care, Angie.

  2. Ha! You are so much more disciplined than me. I know there are recipes for lower-carb brownies. But I was craving a favorite brownie recipe from pre-low-carb days a few days ago. I made them and enjoyed every bite! Of course, I'm back to behaving better the following day... Still.

    Glad to see you post again!

  3. I just made the brownies and had to stop myself after having two with whipped cream on top. Thanks for posting recipe. I love your blog.

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
