Black Bean Brownies?

This recipe makes the rounds at Weight Watchers Meetings and online on the message boards. I've avoided it because I just can't get around the fact that there are beans in the brownies. I'm all for pumpkin in my chocolate cake and zucchini squash in my muffins, but this one was a tough sell for me.

Little did I know they would be so delicious. Low in WW Points because the beans are so high in fiber, you won't notice there are legumes in your dessert.

Black Bean Brownies

1 can (15oz)black beans
1 box (16 oz) plain brownie mix
2 egg whites

Process black beans in food processor till smooth. Add to dry brownie mix with egg whites and stir till mixed. Bake in 9 x 13 pan sprayed with PAM. Bake at 350 for 15-18 min. minutes or as directed on the brownie box.


  1. i've been debating about whether or not to try this recipe. glad to hear of another person who gives it thumbs up. :)

  2. While I would love to give these brownies a whirl, my only on-going concern is -- did your kids eat it? Please say "yes."


I triple dog dare you to comment.
