Black Bean Brownies

Yep.  You read that right.  Black Bean Brownies.  And the best part?  They still taste like yummy brownies!  And they're easy.  I guess that makes 2 best parts. :)   The brownies stay super moist and are full of fiber.  Gotta love that!

1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 family sized box brownie mix (just the powdered mix)
1 cup chocolate chips, optional

Pour brownie mix into a medium sized bowl.  Pour black beans into a blender and blend until smooth.  And it's best to make sure they are smooth.  Nobody likes chucks of beans in their brownies.  Ew!  Pour pureed black beans into the brownie mix and stir until well mixed.  Add chocolate chips and stir.  Bake as directed on the back of the brownie mix box.

Recipe adapted from my neighbor Tiff.


  1. Now most people would shy away from that title, but having made "Pork & Bean's Bread" before, I can tell you these sound yummy! And, think of all the protein, XOXO

  2. I saw a beet brownies recipe recently and thought that the recipe is interesting. Your black bean one is more than just being interesting. What an innovative idea :D

  3. WHAT?!?! I think I've died and gone to heaven! I am SO excited to try these!! I seriously love brownies - best dessert ever in my opinion - and I'm stoked to try this lower cal higher fiber version! Score!! I found you on Sweets for a Saturday and I'm now your newest follower! I'm so excited to see what other yummies you cook up! I hope you're having a great weekend!

  4. I'm not certain your off your rocker but starting to lean that way... :) I'm going to try these because oddly enough they sound awesome!!!! Do you want a food recipe challenge? I have a huge container of couscous that I bought for 1 recipe and have no idea what to do with the rest of it!!! Help! :) Ideas?

    1. You're not the only one. I did the same things! I've been trying to figure out what to do with the rest of the my couscous jar. I'll try to get something up in the next couple weeks. :)
