As you know, we are a brownie bunch, probably our favorite dessert! And I've made many kind but never did I think a brownie would be half way healthy, till now! I pick 2 of my grand kids up from school twice a week, they look forward to a snack when we get back to the house, so I've been trying to come up with some "good" treats and home made as much as possible. Pinterest to the rescue again, I found these brownies, made with black beans, so of course I had to try them! We loved them and the kids didn't know the secret ingredient was healthy! A keeper and oh so fudgy!
Black Bean Brownies
1 19oz can black beans, well rinsed and drained
3 large eggs
3 tbsp vegetable or canola oil
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2/3 cup white sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp instant espresso
1/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
Rinse and drain the beans well. Add all ingredients except the chocolate chips to a blender or food processer and blend till smooth. Pour into a prepared 8 in. baking pan coated with cooking spray, smooth out evenly and sprinkle chocolate chips and bake for 30-32 min. in a 350 oven.
