mgm! (sorry i dont know your real name!)

I'm making the black bean brownie recipe from whole foods today. I knew i wanted to make it when i saw you made them a while ago. I have a super craving for chocolate today, so when i went to the grocery store i got everything i needed and some applesauce to replace the butter. I hope they turn out good! I have a feeling i could eat half the pan today, lol!

Meredith is my name Let me know how it goes with the applesauce. The only thing keeping me from making them again (for a third time....) is the fat. I am trying to lose weight!

I make a fat free black bean brownie recipe. It's not like real brownies, but cures the chocolate craving and the kids love them. Let me know if you want the recipe. The original one calls for banana, but I use pear so it doesn't have that funky baked banana taste.

Meredith! I'll remember that! And i always picture you as skinny as a rail. You're such a healthy eater!
So the brownies turned out good, but they're super fudgy. (not that anything's wrong with that!) So you have to eat it with a fork and plate.

I made the mistake of trying one warm, before it cooled completely, and i could really taste the beans. That was a little gross. But once they were cooled all the way, and i ate another one, i decided it was really good. The bean flavor goes away.

I think it was a win And Ava LOVED hers Then she spilled it on my white carpet

I'd love your recipe w/ the banana! I love trying new recipes

* 15 ounces black beans, drained and rinsed
* 2 whole bananas...I use one large pear
* ⅓ cup agave nectar (I use about 1/8 to 1/4 c honey)
* ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa (I add an extra 1/8 c cocoa)
* 1 tbsp cinnamon
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* ¼ cup raw sugar (optional) (I omit this since i add honey)
* ¼ cup instant oats (I used 3/8 c of rolled, not instant, oats)
I also add in 1/8 to 1/4 t almond extract
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease anf 8x8" pan and set aside. Combine all ingredients, except oats, in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth, scrapping sides as needed. Stir in the oats and pour batter into the pan. Bake approx 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool before slicing Chef's Note: if you find these brownies are too soft or too fudgey, add another 1/4 cup oats or flour.

...I blend in 1/4 of the oats with the rest of the ingredients and then stir in the last 1/8 c. Sometimes I add a handful of chocolate chips as well. I think they are better once cooled.

Mmm! Those sound good. I'm putting them on my 'must make' list Thanks for sharing!

I agree, black bean brownies are ONLY good when cool. Not so good warm...
