PB2 Flourless Brownies

Recipe and Photo from Skinnytaste

Another healthier option for brownies.  I didn't like these as much, but the kids liked them, and they are a cake-y brownie as opposed to the fudge-y black bean brownies.

Ingredients:
  • cooking spray
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 cup PB2 (I couldn't find the plain PB2 so I got the one with chocolate- it's in the peanut butter aisle, a powdered peanut butter- see original recipe for photos)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup (my batter was super runny so I may add less next time)
  • 1/2 cup raw honey (I used agave instead)
  • 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 and stir with a spatula until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan and bake about 30 minutes.

**when I added the eggs, it got super clumpy, and I couldn't mix out the clumps even after adding the water so I had to beat the batter with my electric mixer.  It was super runny- I don't know if it's because there was too much water or maybe because of using agave instead of honey, which is much thinner?  In any event, they turned out fine after baking.**
