Black Beans and Brownies?

Black Bean Brownies!

The last two ingredients you would want to mix are chocolate and black beans, but trust me on this - if no one told you these brownies were made with black beans, you would have no idea! They are so simple to make, delicious and WAY better for you than normal brownies.

I like to use the Betty Crocker dark chocolate brownie mix, but of course you can use whatever brand/kind you like.

1 box Betty Crocker dark chocolate brownie mix
1 can black beans

Keep beans in can and rinse in cold water until water runs clear when pouring out.

Fill can (with beans still in) with water and pour contents into a blender -blend mixture until smooth.

Mix bean puree with brownie mix until no dry mix remains.

Pour into a greased baking dish, and bake according to brownie box directions.

Check the brownies about 5 minutes before the suggested time on the box is up. These brownies are very moist and will stay that way for several days. Don't be fooled when looking at them in the oven - they might look undone, but double check with a tooth pick to make sure.

Cut brownies into about 24 squares- each serving is around 2 ww points!
