Black Bean Brownies (Low-Sat Fat, Low-Sugar, Low-Carb)

I was given a pamphlet on recipes that use beans and the original recipe for these brownies was included. I switched the sugar to Splenda, the eggs to egg substitute (or the same amount of liquid egg whites) and the vegetable oil to canola oil. They're just as good as a traditional brownie but you won't feel bad letting your kids eat them (and eat them they will)!

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Spray an 8x8 square baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Combine the black beans, egg substitute, canola oil, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla extract, Splenda and instant coffee granules (if using) in a blender; blend until smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared dish. At this point, you can also sprinkle chocolate chips over the top of the mixture, if you're not watching your calories.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges start to pull away from the side of the pan, about 30 minutes.
  • I've also noticed that the texture gets better after being refrigerated.

    These were very interesting and a decent substitute for normal brownies. BUT having said that, I think I would only make them again if I were desperate. I don't think I puree'd the black beans as well as I should have and that didn't help. My family ate them, but didn't devour them like normal brownies if that gives you any idea.
