    You can make black bean brownies from a mix as well.

    Buzz a can of black beans, liquid and all in a blender.

    Then replace all the liquid ingredients your brownie mix calls for with the liquified black beans.

    They come out pretty good. Not 100% as good as they would be with eggs, milk, and oil but still quite good. If you really try you can detect a slight beany taste but when I don't tell people there are beans in them they never notice and scarf then down like usual.

  • Sounds weird, but I make a similiar recipe all the time. My 15 year old loves them! He doesn't know what they are made of, but he scarfs them down! emoticon - by IAMSHE-RA
  • I love this recipe-and so does my husband!!!
    (google black bean brownies to find recipes like this one)
    We prefer deep dark chocolate so I use dark chips and a bit of extra cocoa.I also found my food processor worked better than a blender.

    Isn't it great to get protein from brownies?! emoticon - by KIMKURZ
