9. Guilt-Free Brownies

I love brownies, but more often than not, they are so packed with sugar that I feel super guilty eating them. And they’re usually not even that good. Mostly cause you can’t really have more than one, because a lot of the recipes are super rich and overly sweet. This recipe should fix that. You can cut into smaller pieces and enjoy the brownie the whole way through your movie night without any guilt.

Speaking of chickpeas. Don’t hate on this until you try it, because this is going to blog your mind. Chickpeas make a great meringue alternative because when you beat them and add sugar they act like egg whites. It sounds crazy, but you really can’t tell the difference. And with the chocolate underneath, this is going to be the best snack you’ve made and you’re going to feel so much better knowing that it’s made with chickpea water.
