TastyTuesday

Link up a delicious recipe! Or one you want to try :) Or fun Pinterest finds!


I made this recipe as a Sunday night Sweet Treat and believe it or not - V didn't even know what I made it from ;) It tastes just that good - and it's healthy :D

Black Bean Brownies 


Ingredients:
1 (15.5 oz.) can reduced sodium black beans, thoroughly rinsed and drained - I used Organic!
3/4 cup sugar - I used Raw Sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3 eggs
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (optional)

1/3 cup of nuts (optional - I didn't use)


Directions:
1- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
2- Spray an 8×8″ baking dish with cooking spray. (I used a pie dish instead!)
3- Place black beans, sugar, cocoa, eggs, oil, and vanilla in food processor or blender. Pulse thoroughly until smooth and well combined.
4- Pour batter in baking dish. Top with nuts and chocolate chips. 
5- Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is dry and edges begin to pull away from the baking dish. 
6- Cool completely before cutting.
7- Don't tell those you're serving it to what it's made from - they'll never know :)

  1. Yum! Two things I love! I'm going to seriously give these a try sometime. It's funny, bc my mom and I always buy the reduced sodium kind. :)
    I hope you're doing well, Cami!

  3. Hello Cami,
    I love brownies. They are one of my favorite desserts. This recipe looks so simple, and alot of natural ingredients. It has been very hot here in California. I have been busy with the planning of Nel's wedding, which is very soon. I hope you are enjoying the summer days, sweetie.

  5. wow. I've never heard of BB brownies!! I feel like I just crawled out from under a rock....where have these been all my life?? I'm on a special bean diet....so these would be perfect... except for the sugar. I'll have to figure out a sub.

    Thanks for sharing,
