My mom found this recipe for me--it was a big hit with everyone in our family! It was very easy for me, compared to other recipes that involve hiding healthy ingredients in kid-friendly foods. Of course, the kids didn't realize they were eating pureed black beans. This simple substitution greatly reduces the fat content of regular brownie mix, and increases the fiber and protein. There is still sugar in the mix, so restraint is necessary, but at approximately 100 calories a brownie, it's a guiltless treat!
Black Bean Brownies
1 15.5 oz. can of black beans
1 brownie mix
1 pan sprayed with oil (or nonstick)
Spray a square baking pan (9" by 9") with oil or nonstick spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour beans and liquid into a blender and puree. In a mixing bowl, combine brownie mix wih pureed beans. Stir with a spoon and fold into pan. Bake as directed on the brownie mix box (make sure to test though--I found mine took longer to be done).
