Dr Oz brought back Rocco Dispirito to do a segment called the Best Thing I Ever Ate Under 100 Calories. And what do you think that Rocco made this time on the Doctor Oz Show? Nothing other than Diet Brownies made out of black beans which are under 100 calories each! In fact, each brownie is only 88 calories if you split the 8×8 pan into 12 pieces… now if only my husband thought that 1/12 of an 8×8 pan of brownies was a normal portion size! I am doing well to convince him that 1/9 of an 8×8 pan is one brownie, but even if he eats that much of these brownies, it is still pretty good for you compared to normal brownies or many other snacks!
Dr Oz Brownie Recipe
Rocco Dispirito told Dr Oz that healthy and delicious do not have to be mutually exclusive. Dr Oz wants for us to be able to eat the foods that we want and enjoy without being unhealthy. Rocco’s secret ingredient in his brownies are black beans, and if you grind them up well enough in a food processor so that there are absolutely no lumps, nobody will have any idea that there are black beans in your brownies. Another plus of using black beans is that your brownies end up having a lot of protein.
Dr Oz & Rocco Brownie Recipe
Rocco Dispirito said that the secret to making good brownies is to use good chocolate, the fat is not what makes or breaks the brownies. And a little bit of real butter goes a long way. Also, you should get the best natural vanilla you can find because that will really make the brownies taste excellent. Another great tip from Rocco is that whenever you add coffee or espresso to chocolate, it really kicks the dessert up a notch. The end result were really fudgy and delicious looking brownies.
