Posted by on September 23, 2013 in Nutrition / Food / Recipes | 0 comments

This easy recipe starts with a box brownie mix, a can of black beans, and water. It’s a bit more nutritious then the box instructions, and delicious!

Brownie mix, black beans, food processorGather together:

  • One 18 or 19 ounce box brownie mix,
  • One 15.5 ounce can of black beans well rinsed to remove salt,
  • 1/2 cup water,
  • Food processer,
  •  9″ X 13″ baking pan sprayed with baking spray


Beans into processor  Pour beans into a colander and rinse thoroughly.

  In medium bowl, mix pureed beans and brownie mix

These brownies are not “health food”.

In fact, the number one ingredient is sugar! But on those occasions that you need a chocolate fix, these babys will do the trick, and  save you calories and fat in the process. Nutritional numbers shown are my calculation.
