Healthy Fudgey Brownies Made with a Secret Ingredient
Posted May 11 2012 9:10am
This is by no means a homemade recipe, although I am not fond of baking out of a box I was cleaning out the pantry when I came across this box of Dunkin Hines brownie mix, not wanting to waste the mix I decided to simply use it up, however the fact that I made this a healthy and low fat recipe I think earns me some brownie points!
I first learned about these super fudgey, moist, and fat free brownies last year from a friend, I tried using the black beans in a homemade brownie recipe a few months ago, but the combination of my chocaholic addition and my inability to be a patient baker meant that unfortunately I ended up eating half the batter before the brownies even made it to the oven to be baked. However, with my recent no grains pact I was able to completely make, bake, and cut these brownies without even having a taste test! So how do I know this is even a good recipe.....well the fact that my Dad dove into the pan of brownies within minutes of me taking the pan out of the oven and declaring they were excellent with a half full mouth,make me think this recipe was quite a success! Ingredients 1 box of Dunkin Hines Brownie Mix (check the label but most are vegan) 2 1/2 cup of black beans covered over night with with until soft 2 cup of water
1) Set oven to 350, in a food processor combine water and black beans and blend until mixture is completely pureed and smooth (about 2 minutes)
2) Add Dunkin Hines Brownie Mix to food processor, cover, and blend for an additional minutes until batter is completely smooth and thoroughly mixed
3) Spray a 9 x 13 " baking sheet and evenly pour batter into the pan, bake for 25- 30 minutes or until thoroughly cooked through, let completely cool before cutting!
