Black Bean Brownies

This recipe is from Whole Foods. It's a good healthier alternative to regular brownies. They're even gluten free. 

1 (15 oz.) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 c. sugar (I used Splenda and it turned out good!)
2 large eggs
1/3 c. butter, melted
1/4 c. cocoa
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. chocolate chips
1/3 c. roughly chopped walnuts (opt)

Drain and rinse black beans as throughly as possible.  Add beans and melted butter into the bowl of a food processor.  Blend until smooth.  Add in cocoa, vanilla and salt and blend until completely pureed.  Gently stir in chocolate chips and walnuts then pour into an 8"x8" pan sprayed with non-stick spray.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Cool completely before cutting.

  1. For some reason the name of the recipe didn't show up. I can't go back to change anything. The name of the recipe is BLACK BEAN BROWNIES.
