black bean brownies
Week two of no sugar and week three of running has me craving some chocolate in a major way.
But I didn't want to undo all my hard work so I tried making brownies without sugar. Well, not entirely. Just cut by two thirds.
I chose Joy the Baker's recipe for Triple Chocolate Black Bean Brownies, figuring you can't go wrong with a little bit of protein thrown in the mix. Unfortunately, they came out too dry and more cake-like than I like. I prefer a chewy fudgy brownie you can sink your teeth into. Even so, they were definitely chocolatey enough.
So instead, I'll try some fruit compote on top. Might be nice.
