Black Bean Brownies

25 Feb

Adding black beans to the ingredient list of a brownie recipe might sound really weird. But let me tell you, you cannot even taste the black beans! Plus it adds extra fiber, protein, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and many more nutrients. So what went from a very non-nutrient dense dessert just turned into a more nutritious treat! These treats have no oil, eggs and are surprisingly moist. 


1 Box organic brownie mix (be sure to get a mix with no eggs or milk added)

1 large banana

1 can organic black beans


Pour the brownie mix into a bowl. 

Drain a can of black beans and rinse thoroughly until the water runs clear.  Puree the beans and the banana together.  Add the puree to the dry mix along with 2 tablespoons of water.  Stir to combine.

Pour the batter into a 9×13 pan.  Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350.

Cut into 16 squares!
