Devour this flourless healthy brownie guilt free – it’s only 77 calories!

I find it just lovely every time I manage to hide ingredients that no one really expects and then get to just sit and watch people that are normally picky eaters eat my disguised food. If they knew they’re basically eating a salad instead of the brownie they think they’re enjoying, they would’ve never trust me again.

Healthy hidden veggies

Hiding veggies in cakes is one of my absolute favorite things to do. I replace most of the flour with veggies in order to make them extra healthy and cut calories. Most of the time the texture turns out just awful but I certainly do not get discouraged because of it. Most cakes and breads can still be enjoyed even if the texture is a bit off. This time I think I managed to create a nice and silky texture that suits a brownie.

Melts in your mouth
As they’re not as tender as classic butter/flour brownies, they still have a interesting texture that almost melts in your mouth. That’s to be excepted of course since the two main ingredients are rather unusual in cakes: avocado and kidney beans. Avocado is key when it comes to creating smooth texture and adding a “fatty” feeling.

Recipe rundown

2 T (30 g) Fiber syrup such as this syrup from Sukrin or VitaFiber.
1/2 scoop or 3 T (15 g) Trec nutrition sesame whey
1 medium sized avocado (135 g)
1 can drained and rinsed kidney beans (230 g)
3 T cocoa powder
Sweetener to taste
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 tsp salt
5 g sesame seeds for garnish

Okay, all you have to do is basically process all the ingredients at once in a food processor, grease a 8×8 inch or 22×22 cm big baking pan and pour your smooth batter into the dish. Top of with sesame seeds for extra crunch and bake at about 350 F or 180 C for 25-30 minutes.

Birthday light and silk chocolate mousse cake – 75 calories

God I love chocolate. This was made for my birthday by me and my family approved. It’s a improved version of the fudge cake that I made a couple of weeks ago. I wanted more volume so I decided upon making more of a mousse cake instead of a decadent torte. The outcome was a silky chocolate mousse pie that came out a bit more voluminous than the previous cake. Here’s the recipe rundown for this rich afternoon treat:

½ cup or 1 dl quark (100 g)
½ avocado (80 g)
1 package silken tofu (300 g)
1 can of rinsed and drained black beans (230 g)
½ tsp cardamom
A dash of salt
1 egg
2 egg whites
1/3 cup cacao powder (30 g)
1 tsp peanut butter (10 g)
2 T double rich chocolate whey powder ( I usedthis one)
Sweetener to taste (I used half a cup of erythritol)

This cake is superb if you lack time to make a proper cake. All you have to to is preheat the oven to 350 F or 180 C and puree the tofu, avocado and the beans in a blender or food processor and add the rest of the ingredients expect for the eggs and the egg whites. Taste the batter and season it to your preferences and then add the egg + egg whites! Bake it in a spring ban for about 35-45 minutes or until inserted tooth pick comes out clean.
