Rule Breaker Deep Chocolate Brownies
You'd never know it was a better-for-you treat. But this brownie is packed with protein and fiber (secret ingredient: chickpeas!), not too much sugar, and it has only about half the calories of a traditional brownie.
Greetings from Brooklyn! I'm Nancy Kalish, the founder of Rule Breaker Snacks. As a former health journalist and certified health coach, I had learned exactly how to eat healthy. Trouble is, I've always had a very unhealthy sweet tooth (we're talking dessert for breakfast).
I had read about brownies made from black beans on the internet. And I thought, okay, beans are healthy. So I whipped some up. Well, those first black bean brownies were awful--they tasted like beans, they even smelled like beans. But they had that luscious brownie texture. So I kept at it, tweaking my recipe, switched to chickpeas, and I ate a LOT of brownies. Finally, after a year, I had created the perfect recipe with no beany taste.
Rule Breaker Snacks break all the rules (no flour! no eggs! no butter!). Chickpeas (that's right, beans) are the first ingredient. But our soft-baked treats are so chewy and delicious, you'd never know. They come in several crave-worthy flavors: Deep Chocolate Brownie, Chocolate Chunk Blondie, Birthday Cake, P'Nutter Chocolate Chip (nut-free) and our limited edition Mint Chocolate Brownie Bites.
