Flourless Brownie Bites
Yields: 24 brownie bites
 
These easy brownie bites are extremely rich, fudgy and chocolaty. Nobody can ever tell they’re lightened up and made without butter, dairy or refined sugar! Leftovers will stay fresh for at least 6 days if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • for the brownies
  • 1 (15oz) can reduced sodium black beans, thoroughly rinsed and drained
  • 3 large egg whites, room temperature
  • ½ cup (40g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup (120mL) pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup (60mL) Silk Unsweetened Cashewmilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • for the icing
  • 5 tsp confectioners style stevia
  • 1 tsp Silk Unsweetened Cashewmilk
  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F. Line 24 mini muffin cups with cupcake liners, and lightly coat with cooking spray.
  2. To prepare the brownies, add all of the ingredients in the order listed to a large food processor or blender. Purée until completely smooth. Divide the batter between the prepared muffin cups. Bake at 300°F for 14-18 minutes or until the tops look slightly glossy in the center and done around the edges. Cool completely to room temperature in the muffin cups before removing. Let the brownies rest for at least an additional 2 hours for the fudgiest texture.
  3. To prepare the icing, whisk together the ingredients in a small bowl. Transfer the icing to a zip-topped bag, cut off a small corner, and pipe on top of the cooled brownie bites.
Notes: Do NOT taste the batter before baking! It will taste very strongly of black beans. However, their flavor disappears while baking and letting the brownie bites rest for the additional 2 hours, so you won’t taste them in the final treats.

For a vegan version, substitute 1 ½ tablespoons of this egg replacer plus 6 tablespoons of water instead of the egg whites.

Any milk may be substituted in place of the Silk Unsweetened Cashewmilk.

It’s important to line the mini muffin cups with cupcake liners to make it easier to pop the brownie bites out of the tin.
