Healthy, peanut buttery, crunchy, 5-ingredient, naturally sweetened no-bake fudge brownies. Does it get any better than this?
You know what I try to never do this time of year? Make big resolutions to be healthy or lose weight. I am all for people being healthy, but I feel like any time of year is a good time to do that. And on top of that I am usually frustrated by all the people who show up at the gym on January 2.
But this year I am being a hypocrite and doing exactly that – starting to eat healthier and joining the gym in January. The reason for this is that for the last couple of months we have been doing house renovations, moving, and unpacking, so we didn’t have much time for home cooked meals or the gym. So it happened that by the time we were settled enough to make gym time and healthy cooking a priority, it happened to be January.
Last week I posted a delicious Fennel Salad with Dill recipe, and this week I am sharing this healthy No Bake Fudge Brownies recipe that I created for Randall Beans. Because I am not skipping dessert. Heck no.
The magic to these brownies? Beans. Yes, beans. Black beans to be exact. Don’t feel weird about it – beans are commonly used in desserts around the world, and they help make these brownies fudgey. The other magic component of these brownies? Peanut butter. Because peanut butter and chocolate are meant to be together. And the fact that they are no-bake is pretty magic too.
I don’t believe in feeling guilty about food, but if you are looking for a sweet treat that is still nutritious and not too high in calories, give these Peanut Butter No Bake Fudge Brownies a try.
