You can substitute out all the sugar with sweetener to make it totally sugar free but I do find that by using a blend it tends to avoid some of the aftertaste that some sweeteners have - for me Splenda is one of the few artificial sweeteners that give a decent baking result.

  3. Puree black beans in food processor/blender until smooth and creamy it has been suggested that you may need to add one of the eggs to get the right texture.
  4. Beat in eggs.
  5. Combine dry ingredients - using a whisk blend together or run through a sifter. This will prevent the unpleasant surprise of a lump of baking powder.
