Black Bean Brownies


You read the title correctly black bean brownies; and yes, they are made with the black beans in a can that you usually eat with your Mexican food.  Sounds really gross and weird, huh? Well, they are great! Who knew? I certainly would have never imagined that I would eat them, but I did and they are good.  I think they would be great topped with a big ol' scoop of ice cream.  The way I figure, all the fiber and protein in the brownie would cancel out the fat in the ice cream. Right?!

I found the recipe over on skinnytaste.com   The brownies only have two ingredients - black beans and brownie mix.  I had them both in the pantry, so I gave it a shot.  Talk about easy!  Go ahead and give them a try - I promise you will never know that they are made with black beans.

  3. I saw Rocco Dispirito making a black bean brownie on tv from scratch before. It seems very interesting. Never would have thought to put beans in a brownie

  6. I've made and posted these before, too, (a good year or two ago). They are pretty good. Yours look super fudgy.
    (I made Rocco's ccc's with black beans once and they were really gross.)

  7. Interesting! I have to try this. But I am wondering what type of brownie mix you used.
