A Sweet Treat with One-Point Mini Brownie Bites
These One-Point Mini Brownie Bites are easy to make in the food processor. Black beans serve as the “flour” and sweetened with stevia or Splenda. If you want to savor each bite, try freezing these for a lasting, fudgy taste. Use a mini cupcake/muffin pan like the one from Amazon. Clean-up is a breeze with the pan and each one is the perfect portion-controlled size. Each bite is 43 calories, one point each.
