Black Bean Brownies

Make these delicious (and nutritious) fiber-filled brownies as an alternative to the bake shop! The black beans replace most of the butter in this recipe and make the brownies very moist and fudgy. 


•1 can of low-sodium black beans
•3 eggs
•3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
•1 teaspoon vanilla extract
•¼ cup cocoa powder
•1 pinch of salt
•1 teaspoon of instant coffee
•¾ cup white sugar


1.    In a food processor, pulse the beans, eggs, oil, vanilla and cocoa powder. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
2.    Add the salt, coffee and white sugar and mix well.
3.    Place in a non-stick 8x8 baking dish and bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
