No one will ever know that the secret ingredient that makes these brownies virtually cholesterol free and low fat is black beans. Moist and dense, you'll never have to make package brownies again. Walnuts increase the calories to 112. The following recipe from Stealth Health: How To Sneak Nutrition Painlessly Into Your Diet, ©1998 by Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD was contributed by Marilyn Helton.

Incredible! 5.0/5

This sandwich is quick and easy to make. It can also be eaten cold, but I like it better after it's been pan-fried.
If you don't like relish, it can easily be substitued with mustard, or a light mayo.

This is a very good sourdough bread. The first three ingredients are the ingredients of the regular starter which I have in another recipe.
