Gluten Free Peppermint White Chocolate Brownies

Go ahead and indulge in these brownies as they are loaded with protein!


The holidays are almost here and I have a healthy Gluten Free Peppermint White Chocolate Brownie recipe to share with you. These brownies are also high in protein. So go ahead and indulge in this holiday treat. These brownies are moist and so decadent and have a wonderful chocolate peppermint flavor.



Gluten-Free Peppermint White Chocolate Brownies
                                           Makes 16 squares 
Ingredients

1 15oz can black beans, rinsed/drained
1/3 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
4 scoops Nuzest Clean Lean Protein, Rich Chocolate  -see notes
4 tablespoons coconut oil
2 large eggs
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons peppermint extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt

Topping
 10 ounces white chocolate chips
 1 cup crushed peppermint candies

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
1. Add all of the ingredients into a food processor.
2. Blend until completely smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.
3. Spray an 8 x 10" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray, and line with parchment paper. The parchment will help you lift the brownies out later.
4. Pour the batter into the prepared dish and spread it out evenly.
5. Place the dish in the center of the oven and bake for 30- 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
6. Remove the brownies from the oven and let them cool in the pan for 15 minutes.
7. Using the parchment paper, lift the brownies out of the pan and place them on the counter.
8. Frost with melted chocolate chips and sprinkle the crushed peppermint candies on top.

Topping directions
  Place the white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe dish. Cook the chocolate on high in 30 seconds increments until melted, stirring in between. 

Notes- The protein powder that I used equal to 40 grams of protein.
