Shirataki Noodle/Black Bean Brownies-45 calories

(Brownie topped with a powdered sugar glaze and sprinkled with a couple super mini dark chocolate chips)

Recipe below. Note-if you need directions on how to prepare the shirataki noodles to bake with them, please refer to the 10 calorie chocolate miracle cookie recipe HERE.

45 calories is what my math came to per brownie. I also cut 12 brownies out of my 8 x8 pan. If you decide to frost or glaze you would have to add those calories as well.

3 bags traditional shirataki noodles "cooked" and "pureed"(learn how here.)

5 Tablespoons of egg whites( I use the carton of egg whites, easier then separating eggs)

3/4 cup black bean(could do a cup, measure then puree the beans in food processor)

8-10 Tablespoons cocoa powder( depending on the quality, you may want to add another Tablespoon or 2, I used just 8 though.)

4 Tablespoons Honey( I should have added more or used a sugar substitute- splenda for baking would have been a better choice from a sweetness and texture standpoint.)

1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring

Mix the pureed noodles and pureed black beans together. Then mix in the rest of the ingredients.

Pour into a well greased 8 x 8 pan. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

Sprinkle some confectioners sugar on top, or make a glaze(sugar substitute for fewer calories.)

These, were not what I was hoping for in texture, they are more custard like then brownie like, but they were very tasty! The smell alone was so delicious I forgave them for not being chewy. :-)

Planning on trying again this weekend- considering using just two packages of shirataki noodles and finding some other low calorie "dry" ingredient to add in hopefully to make a more "chewy" brownie.

FYI- You can find Shirataki noodles at Whole Foods. In Houston I have found them at Kroger and HEB. So far though, the best price I have gotten is when I order online at; http://www.asianfoodgrocer.com/ at 1.68 a bag. They even have another brand that is a little cheaper I think at 1.58 a bag.
