Black Bean Brownies

By J Kate

These were super fudgey and delicious. All my kids loved them. And they are gluten free as well. Here is a link to the recipe. http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail....

Black Bean Brownies
Ingredients
  • 1 can Black Beans (La Costeña Whole Black Beans), drained and rinsed

  • 3 Tbsp Unsalted Butter, softened

  • 3/4 cup Egg Substitute (or 3 whole eggs)

  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

  • 3/4 cup Sugar Substitute (Kroger Zero Calorie Baking Sweetener/Xylitol)

  • 1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Cocoa (Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa)

  • 1 tsp Instant Coffee

  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

  • 1 pinch Salt

  • 2 Tbsp Sugar Free Chocolate Chips, chopped (30 g)

  • Sugar Free Chocolate Chips and/or Chopped Nuts, as desired for topping

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Pour drained and rinsed black beans onto clean paper towels and pat dry. Process black beans, until smooth. Combine egg, vanilla extract, butter, and processed black beans, mixing thoroughly. Add sugar substitute, cocoa, coffee, baking powder, and salt, and mix, until well combined and smooth. Fold in chopped chocolate chips. Pour into greased/lined 8" X 8" baking pan. Add additional chocolate chips and/or nuts, if desired. Bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of pan comes out clean. Turn oven off and let cool in oven w/door cracked for 5-7 minutes. Place on rack, until cooled. Cut into 16 brownies (2" X 2"). Place cooled and cut brownies in refrigerator for up to 12 hours. Refrigerating the brownies diminishes the bean flavor and enhances the chocolate flavor. After refrigerating, store at room temperature in sealed container. Best served at room temperature or slightly warm.
