I’ve heard about Black Bean Brownies from a couple different places recently, and finally tried them the other day. You just need a regular brownie mix and a can of black beans. After pureeing the beans and the liquid from the can (I drained the liquid and filled the can back up with water to reduce the sodium), just mix it with the brownie mix instead of adding the oil, water, and egg. You can bake them as normal.
I don’t have a picture of mine, which is a testament that these really are good! They were gone by the next day (but my sister was visiting, so give me some credit), and I promise you can’t taste any bean flavor. The texture was slightly different than regular brownies — almost more chewy than fudgy — but still super moist.
Next time you make brownies, try it and see if your family can notice a difference!
On a side note, although you couldn’t tell, I’ve been sewing like crazy lately. Definitely more than I have in a long time. I’ve sewn a bridesmaid dress, 3 ties, 2 bowtie, and a dress for myself (yep, the ruffle plaid Anthro dress… I just finished sewing it and is it sad that I’m sitting here typing at 1:30am while wearing it and debating whether I should take the hem down a 1/2″?). I’ll show you pics soon of all the finished products :).
