Default Black Bean Brownies, Healthy

Note: I just wanted to say these were super good. I did add 1/2 cup Splenda to the recipe. The crumb is soft when they're warm so careful taking them out of the pan. When they’re cool they’re firm. They fit nicely into a snack bag for lunches and freeze well.

Black Bean Brownies Healthy

• Canola oil spray
• 1 can (15-oz.) reduced-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
• 3 large eggs
• 3 Tbsp. canola oil
• 1⁄4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
• Pinch of salt
• 1⁄2 Tbsp. vanilla extract
• 2⁄3 cup light brown sugar, packed
• 3 Tbsp. bittersweet or dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat 8-inch baking pan with canola oil spray
In food processor, place beans, eggs, canola oil, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla and brown sugar and blend until smooth. Remove blade and carefully stir in chocolate chips.

Transfer mixture to prepared pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a clean dry knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool before cutting into squares.

Makes 16 servings (1 brownie each).
