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!
