Brownies that are South Beachy

Submitted by: PRAIRIEDAWNPAM

Introduction

I combined two recipes, one for black bean brownies (that sometimes gets complaints for being too gooey) and one for whole wheat brownies (that can be to dry), and replaced the sugar with Splenda. You could add walnuts to the batter just before baking. Try icing them with cream cheese, Splenda and cocoa. Suitable for diabetics and those on Phase 2 of South Beach. Each serving has just 15 grams of carbs, a safe diabetic snack.
