These have been making me happy as I stress-eat through piles of notes and practices test questions.
You won’t believe that these brownies have black beans in them!! Not even a hint of black bean flavor. This helps me feel a little less guilty about eating so many.
Here’s what you do.
1- Get a package of brownie mix. Any kind will work. I used TJ’s brand which was good, but Duncan Hines California Walnut Brownie Mix was even better! (The brownies pictured above are actually the DH version)
2- Next, puree a can of low sodium black beans, juice and all.
3- Combine bean puree and 2tsp cinnamon(optional) with dry brownie mix. Stir until you get a thick, slightly lumpy mixture.
4- Pour into a lightly oiled, 8 x 8 baking dish.
5- Bake according to package directions. Baking times may vary. I actually ended up baking mine for 10 minutes longer, so check as you go.
What you get is a crispy on the outside, moist on the inside, dense, fudgy brownie . So yummy and it’s kinda good for you. Hidden fiber and no added fat.
That’s the end of my 10 days. I can’t believe how fast it went by! I work all day tomorrow, then Saturday we are headed to Phoenix for a bit of shopping, eating and swimming. Monday is the BIG test day!! Wish me luck 🙂 I will be back sometime next week.
Have a wonderful weekend!
