Delicious Flourless Brownies with a secret ingredient :)

Brownies, one of the world’s greatest pleasures 🙂

These brownies are flour-free and guilt-free! And the secret ingredient is…. BLACK BEANS! Yes, you got that right! And you really can’t taste them! The flavor is a little different, but not in a bad way, and Mr. Picky couldn’t even tell the difference 🙂

As you might already know I love sweets, so if there’s a way or a recipe I see that is somewhat healthy I’m all for it! That way I can eat my dessert and not have to run 5 miles on the treadmill tomorrow 🙂 These are very decadent with only 123 calories! They take less than 5mins to prepare and as long as you have a food processor you are good to go 🙂

Everything you need! Sugar, melted butter, cocoa powder, 2 eggs and 2 egg whites, vanilla extract, a can of black beans and chocolate chips 🙂 Bet you have everything in your pantry! I did.

Place all the ingredients excluding the chocolate chips into the food processor and pulse until smooth.

Pour the batter in a baking dish top with chocolate chips and bake for about 30mins.

Look pretty awesome, no!?

Ooh yeah!

Now, this is ahhmazing!

Here’s how to make these awesome brownies:

  1. yum! i love brownies, i love black beans…gotta try this!

  2. Not keen on anything too sweet. These sound perfect, especially as I luuuuv black beans!

  3. Reblogged this on Meals on Wheels.

  4. This looks so easy and yum!! Will definitely try! Don’t know if I will find black beans though… maybe the white ones will also do?

    • In this recipe the black beans are verry important as its the substitute for flour and since I’ve never made them with any other kind, I’m not really sure if it will work. But why not, give it a go let me know how it works out 🙂

  5. I love this and will be trying it soon!!

  6. This is amazing- if it tastes as good as it looks, I am hooked on beans ( and not coffee beans for a change)

  7. I might try these at Passover!
