Rinse the beans in a colander with cold water until the foam disappears. Combine in large bowl. Dice the bell peppers and onion the same size as the beans and add to the bowl. Finely dice the garlic and add to the bowl. Wash and dry your cilantro then chop and add. Sprinkle salad with olive oil and vinegar and season with salt, pepper, chili powder, cayenne pepper, etc. as desired. Makes about 8 1/2 cup servings.

Bean Muffins p1
1 can white beans, drained and rinsed well
3 eggs
1/2 C splenda
1/4 C sf flavored syrup or sf pancake syrup
2 T SmartBeat or Canola oil
1 T cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 350. Mix everything in a blender or food processor (you could use a hand mixer but texture might be lumpier). Add to muffin pans sprayed with cooking spray. Bake about 30-40 min or until firm and a toothpick comes out clean. It's hard to over cook these things!

Makes 6 jumbo muffins or more smaller. They have about 125 calories a piece if using SmartBeat, canola oil will up the calories a little.

I just made mine plain and they were really tasty but you could use these flavorings as well:
-1 or 2 T bannana extract with 2 T walnuts
-2T maple extract with 2 T pecans
-P2--zest of one lemon, 2 T lemon juice, 1/2 C blueberries (reduce sf syrup by 2T if you do this one)

I am not able to have flour, so I substituted flour for almond meal. I also made large cookies, so you cam really many about 10 small ones to cut the calories.
