Gluten-Free Red Velvet Brownies
It’s Valentines Day and I felt the need to make a pretty dessert in honor of the holiday! These are extremely healthy, gluten-free, and delicious brownie sandwiches that are super fun to make!
15.5 oz canned white beans
3/4 cup oat flour
1/3 cup almond flour/meal
2 large egg whites
1/2 cup chocolate protein powder low sugar/carb
1 tbsp Vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk additional to the 1/3 cup
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup stevia in the raw powder
3 tbsp canned beet juice
1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup Fat Free Plain Greek Yogurt
1/3 cup stevia in the raw powder More for a sweeter taste
1 tsp Vanilla extract
Gather all ingredients, a food processor, a baking pan, and a spoon.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drain the beans and rinse well. Add all "brownie" ingredients to the food processor and blend until all ingredients are well blended and smooth.
Spray a baking pan with pam cooking spray and pour the gluten-free brownie batter into the pan. Make sure to spread the batter well with a spoon.
Bake the gluten-free brownies on 350 degrees for 17-20 minutes, depending on your oven. Check the center of the brownies with a toothpick to make sure the brownies are fully cooked. Let the brownies sit and cool for a few minutes and then cut shapes out of the brownies.
While the brownies are cooking, make the cream cheese frosting for the brownies. Place in the freezer until ready for use.
Once the brownie shapes are completely cooled, add a large dollop of icing to the top of one brownie cut-out, and then top with another similar brownie cut-out. Continue this process until you have used up all cut-outs. For additional yumminess...add a drizzle of melted dark chocolate! Enjoy!!
