Oh my gosh.

      Oh my gosh.

            Oh my gosh.

Confession time!  Okay, so, I used to eat Tollhouse cookie dough straight out of the tub... the 36oz tub... from Costco (yes, that cookie dough) and not only was that fairly dangerous from a possible salmonella contamination, it was unhealthy from the insane amount of sugar, processed flour and trans fats.

I won't get into the nitty gritty, but just trust me, this brownie batter/cookie dough whip is sooo much better!

Like, 12x better.


First off, it's chocolate flavored (woohoo!)

Second, it's eggless, therefore safe to eat raw.

Third, it's low fat and sugar free, not to mention high fiber due to its secret ingredient:  black beans!
(Don't worry, you don't taste them at all)


Once you take a bite you will completely forget that it's good for you.  This is just so good.  Super thick and fudgy like brownie batter, super oaty and chewy like cookie dough.


Brownie Batter / Chocolate Cookie Dough:  [eggless, sugar free, low fat, high fiber/protein, GF, vegan]
(serves 4-6)
Dry:
   55g (1/2 cup + 1 tbs) Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (GF if you like)
   64g (2 scoops) Chocolate Protein Powder
   48g (1/4 cup) Granulated Erythritol (or dry sweetener of choice)
   10g (2 tbs) Regular Cocoa Powder
   1/4 tsp Instant Coffee (optional)
   1/8 tsp Salt
Wet:
   one 15oz can Black Beans (drained and rinsed well;  about 1.5 cups beans)
   1/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
   64g (1/4 cup) Raw Almond Butter
   1/2 tsp Stevia Extract
   1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract

Directions:
1.  In a large bowl, add the dry ingredients, mix and set aside
2.  In a blender, puree the wet ingredients.  Scoop this over the dry ingredients and stir mixture... and you're done!

Top with chocolate chips if you wish.  I topped mine with mini chocolate chips  :)

PS:  I was selfish and kept about half (okay, a little more than half) for myself in the fridge for a snack the next day.  I didn't know it was possible, but it gets better!  The batter tasted more chocolatey and the texture was even fudgier... if that's a word?  Anyways, if you have enough self control to have this in the fridge all night I recommend doing so.
Or you can do what I did:  double-wrap the entire container in tin foil so you can't see/smell/scoop into it with ease.


I'm not gonna hide it... look at these nutrition facts!


Definitely not something you'd see on the back of a Tollhouse cookie dough tub!

I should know...

    1. Thanks so much! To make it easier, you can buy the protein powder online instead of in stores (it's cheaper online too). Here are two brands that I like:

      1) Optimum Nutrition Natural: http://www.amazon.com/Optimum-Nutrition-Standard-Natural-Vanilla/dp/B000GIURM2/ref=sr_1_1?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1333287012&sr=1-1
      2) Jay Robb (GF, sugar free, etc): http://www.amazon.com/Jay-Robb-Enterprises-Vanilla-powder/dp/B0001OP0XW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1333286566&sr=8-1

      And thanks again, your made me smile :)

  8. Want to make this but before going out and buying the ingredients I have a question...
    It makes 6 servings- does this stuff keep in the fridge for a week? I can't see myself having but one serving per day. I can always serve some up to the toddlers but just wondering how long this stuff stretches.

    1. Cookies doughs and batters never usually last that long in my fridge so I'm not sure ;) But, I'm sure this can stay in the fridge for a week as long as it stays covered. Enjoy!

  9. I've been reading your blog (and drooling over the delicious looking goodies!) since December and finally got around to making something. This was such a snap to make and so yummy. A perfect treat for when you want a little something sweet... It's almost impossible to believe it's not horrible for you! Can't wait to try something new!
