These brownies have a few secret ingredients: black beans and prunes, along with oats and whole wheat flour, boost the nutrition, while the dark cocoa powder and mini chocolate chips keep the rich flavor that you crave in a brownie.
I prefer the richer flavor of dark brown sugar, but you can use light if that's all you have.
Swap vanilla extract for almond or peppermint extract to alter the flavor. (If you use almond extract, mix in 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or almonds to the batter. For minty brownies, add a couple of chopped candy canes.)
These have 6 g fiber and protein each--and just 3 g fat. This is a treat you can feel good about eating. The result is a thick, fudge-like brownie that's rich and delicious.

This is a wonderful moist cake. My friends who don't have to eat GF loved it. I did not frost it, but just used some cool whip. Freeze well.

Flourless Chocolate Cake
Very Good 4.6/5
(5 ratings)

Perfect for chocolate lovers! Great for entertaining, deceptively easy to make. Perfect for people who can't have gluten. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream, or simply dusted with icing sugar. I flour the pan using cocoa powder so it won't leave white marks on the cake and keeps it totally gluten free. Not low calorie, but very rich so you could easily half the portion if you pair it with some berries on top. I also know someone who substituted splenda for the sugar and swore she couldn't tell the difference but I have never tried it.
