    Susiecat too's Note:

    This is an even sneakier version of the "sneaky chef" brownies by Missy Chase Lapine. It is made with some of her "purple puree" but also utilizes black beans, which is a trick from Weight Watchers. No added fat to this recipe! No cholesterol! And if you omit the chocolate chips, it is vegan. It makes a very good, not overly sweet, cake-y brownie. NOTE: the purple puree part of the recipe makes a good 1 1/2 - 2 cups. This recipe uses only 1/2 cup, so reserve remainder for another use. It freezes well.

      I didn't have any whole wheat flour so I substituted another 1/3 c all purpose flour and 1/3 c mix of almond flour, oat flour and quinoa flour. I left out the walnuts and the chocolate chips, and the resulting batter was pretty thick, like almost cookie thick. I baked a test ramekin and the result was NOT something that was going to pass these healthy foods into my guy's system unnoticed. I mixed in some applesauce and baked another test ramekin. The result was more moist, but still not unhealthy-seeming enough. I added more applesauce and a bunch of agave, a splash of water and a handful of chocolate chips. The resulting ramekin was super moist, maybe too moist, but much tastier. I'm now baking a small tray with peanut butter swirled in. I think when this cools, it'll pass for normal brownies, and I'll succeed in feeding him spinach, blueberries and flax seed meal after all.

      Glad I saw your notes & comments... when you half the recipe it does not adjust the 'Direction' part of the recipe so I would have added 1/2 cup (vs 1/4) to the recipe which probably would have ruined it, wheeehhhh. I'm anxious to try this & comment on my success.
