Hey friends how's your week going? Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite healthy treats. Although my meal plan allows dessert a few times a week, I want to eat sweets EVERY.SINGLE.DAY (anybody else?). It doesn't help that there are 2 kids in the house who love chocolate, cookies and ice cream. The struggle is real.
To tame the sweet tooth beast, I try to keep healthier versions of my favorite treats on hand. Like these flour-less gluten-free sugar-free chocolate brownie muffins 🙂 They freeze and reheat really well, so I usually make a double batch and hide them. Out of sigh out of mind, right?
The best thing about these brownie muffins is the ingredients - no flour, no sugar, no butter. And the texture is so rich and moist, no one will ever guess that you use garbanzo beans as a base!
Here's what you'll need to prepare these amazing treats:
The second best thing about this recipe is it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare! I mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and blend with a hand held mixer.
The consistency should be smooth and liquidy, kind of like crepe or pancake batter I could eat this right out of the bowl...
Next you pour the batter into greased or lined muffin tins, arrange 3 chocolate chips on top of each and pop in a 350 oven for 15-18 minutes. Done! The hardest thing now is to find something to distract yourself with for the next 20 minutes 🙂 Wish you could smell the picture! These beauties come out delightful every single time and I don't feel bad eating them!
Here is the recipe if you'd like to give it a try:
