Ingredients
  • 40g Oats
  • 30g Unsweetened Cocoa
  • 25g Coconut Flour
  • 20g Splenda/Stevia (track the carbs in these!)
  • 100g Pumpkin Puree
  • 430g Canned Black Beans (strained and rinsed thoroughly)
  • 100g 97% FF Cream Cheese at room temperature
  • 126g Egg Whites
  • 2 Large Whole Eggs
  • 20g Mini Chocolate Chips (half for the batter, half for on top)
  • 5g Baking Powder
  • 5g Baking Soda
  • 10g Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Salt
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Celsius, bake time is 25-35 minutes depending on oven and pan. You want them to still be a bit fudge-y when they come out.
  2. In a food processor, blend all dry ingredients until the oats are fairly finely ground.
  3. Add in all the wet ingredients except for the chocolate chips, blend until mixture is smooth and beans are fully pureed.
  4. Spray pan with non-stick cooking spray, layer half the brownie mix, sprinkle half the chocolate chips, layer the rest of the mixture. Tap down the pan firmly several times to even out batter.
  5. Bake for 25-35 minutes at 350 degrees Celsius. Test the cake by inserting a toothpick in the middle, it's ready when it almost comes out clean.
  6. Remove from oven, immediately sprinkle remainder of chocolate chips on top. Drag a fork across the melted chocolate chips.

Store each brownie wrapped tightly in saran wrap in the refrigerator. They will last up to a week if you can make them last that long!
