Black Bean Brownies!

I have not posted this yet?!?

A great, quick and easy (and inexpensive!) way to get you chocolate fix AND your PROTEIN and FIBER!!

(I make a bunch in my mini cupcake pan, and freeze some to zap later in the microwave!)

1 box ANY brownie mix
1 can (15 oz) ANY black beans

Open the can of black beans, rinse well. With beans back in the can, add enough water to cover beans. Put in blender or food processor and puree. Add puree to brownie mix, and then bake according to package directions.

You DO NOT add the eggs or oil that the recipe calls for, JUST the black bean puree!

These are pretty rich and fudgy, and my friends couldn't tell that they weren't "regular" brownies!!

Seriously, try it! Its amazing! I want to hear stories about who you fooled with these!


  1. Wow! This sounds great! Wonder if it will work with gluten-free mixes too... or maybe I can make my own?

  2. I bet it would work with gluten-free! Give it a whirl and let us know!
