Decadent, Delicious, Deceiving

How can a brownie be deceiving? I saw this recipe online and couldn't believe it. I love brownies. They are one of the food groups as far as I'm concerned. I love the crunchy/chewy edges...what's not to love about a brownie?

Well, I had to try this recipe for two reasons.
1. I am grasping at straws to find a nutritious brownie and this is as close as I'm going to get.
2. My kids may eat them if they don't know what's in them...remember my recent cauliflower victory?

You only need two ingredients.

That's right. Any boxed brownie mix and a can of black beans. Shhhh it will be our secret!

Pour the un-drained beans into your blender and pulverize them until runny. Add to your brownie mix.

Stir by hand until combined (if you use a mixer, they will be more cake-like).

Bake for time listed on back of brownie box. When done they will look a little like this.

I added frosting to entice my children to eat them.

The best part about these brownies is you cut down on saturated fat and increase fiber with this great substitution.

If you are interested in frosting your brownies, this is a great recipe.
