High protein nutty black bean brownies

If you fancy a gooey chocolate brownie without the butter and sugar content of the café version – try these Nutty Black Bean Brownies.

28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member Dina Santos has sent us this protein packed recipe for chocolate brownies, and they contain the goodness of nuts, oats, coconut and black beans.

The protein content will fill you up and keep you satisfied until your next meal – making them a great snack for afternoon tea.

As part of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge we have stacks of chocolate recipes, from fudge and mousse to bliss balls and cookies. There’s no need to miss out on your favourite foods while you lose weight.
