Black Bean Brownies

Submitted by: SARA772779

Introduction

A slightly modified version of a tried and true recipe that is liked by all. I've made this full sugar several times and get as good or better raves using this reduced sugar recipe.

These taste awesome, I promise, just don't tell anyone what is in them until after they eat one. Print out the nutrional stats because everyone can eat these brownies. Bake up a bunch and be a hit at the company potluck or holiday party.

Print up a bunch of recipe cards because you'll need them when your friends ask for the recipe.

Ingredients

    1 can black beans
    3 eggs
    3 T vegetable oil
    2 tsp SF vanilla syrup (can use vanilla extract)
    1 pinch salt
    2 tsp baking powder
    1/4 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
    3/4 cup sugar substitute (I used Splenda granular)
    1 T instant coffee (heaping Tbsp)
    1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
    1/4 cup walnut pieces

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and cover a 9X9 baking pan with non-stick spray. (If using glass, reduce temperature by 25 degrees)

Using a blender or food processor mix all ingredients except chocolate chips and walnuts. Blend thoroughly until beans are smooth. Fold in dark chocolate chips and walnut pieces or spread evenly across the top, if preferred.

Bake 35 - 40 minutes. The brownies will appear slighly unset in the middle. They will firm up while cooling some. If you like cakey brownies, bake until well set.

Allow to cool completely. Cut the pan in to 25 servings and serve.

  • I am not sure what I did wrong on this recipe but the brownies turned out gross! Not only did they taste awful, but they literally crumbled in the pan when I tried to cut into serving pieces. Since I followed the recipe as stated, I will most likly not try it again. - 1/10/10
