Red Bean Brownies
This is a really really simple healthy desert that can literally be made and served within 20 minutes. Substituting white flour for beans (kidney beans, chickpeas and black beans) is a great way to get in protein and fibre and eliminating white flour which can wreak havoc on your insulin levels and leave you feeling hungry and crazily craving more sugar.
This recipe is gluten free and can be easily be modified to be vegan as well.
These make around 8-10 brownies; average nutritional values are as follows per piece

- If they seem a little bit soft or underdone you can leave them overnight in the fridge which manages to firm them up pretty well.
- I use butterscotch chocolate chips and they go well with it too.
