TRY IT....YOU'LL LIKE IT...... Brownies

Mmmmm... Don't they look good?

1 box of Brownie Mix (I used Krusteaz)
1 (15 oz) can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 cup water
Preheat oven to 350. Put the brownie mix in a medium bowl. Drain and rinse the black beans and put it in the blender with the cup of water. Blend till it is all together. Add it to the brownie mix. Whisk it up. Spray pan. Then add to pan. I used an 11X7 inch pan but you can use whatever you want. Just follow the back of the brownie box as directed. I left my brownies in the oven for about 35-40 minutes. Just until the knife comes out clean. ENJOY!
The Results:
Don't let the black beans fool you. I made these brownies the other day for an activity. They could not believe what I was doing. My sister in law gave me this recipe after I had tried these at her house. I could not believe how moist and delicious they were. Hey I guess if you ever run out of eggs you always have a back up. You just have to try this though. You won't believe how good they are. I wouldn't lie to you. Go make them. Serve them up with some vanilla ice cream. YUM!

What a great idea for food storage. I know it sounds wacky but beans really do work well in baked goods, right?

What a great idea - I've never heard of using black beans before. The brownies look amazing.

Black beans in brownies does sound good! It is fairly common in some Asian cuisines to use azuki red beans in sweets.

Amanda said...

No way! I am going to have to try these!

An unusual mix, but if you say it works, I believe you. They certainly look good.
