My version of black bean brownies :)
I know there are similar recipes out there but here is what I made last night, very yummy!
1 15oz. can of black beans(plain) drained and rinsed
4 medium eggs
1 1/4 cup Splenda
3 1/2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. canola oil
1 tbs real vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup walnuts crunched in hands
Mix all ingredients except nuts in food processor till very well blended. Fold in the 1/2 the nuts
Spray a 9x9 glass baking dish with nonstick spray. Pour batter into dish and top with remaining nuts. Bake at 350 for approx 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
These were awesome!!! Definitely banished my sweet craving!
