My husby and me are avid watchers of the Dr. Oz show! Although we both work we can't really watch it each night but you bet we got the DVR set! On a weekend morning we will hang out and catch up on the show and watch the parts that are of interest to us. A while back this recipe aired on the show, and since my husby LOVES brownies I decided to make it. At first I was a bit skeptical because who heard of black beans in brownies right??? But it's super delicious, moist and it's good for you!!
The only two things I tweaked in the recipe is that I added pecans/walnuts and sprinkled coconut flakes on top of the brownie before baking it! We also skipped the frosting and served it with vanilla ice cream instead! :) You know in order to get some calcium.
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup agave syrup
1/2 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup egg whites
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 tbsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
6 tbsp mini semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a 8x8 baking dish with nonstick
cooking spray. In a food processor, mix all brownie ingredients (except
chips) together. Chop on high, until smooth. Clean off sides and blend
for another 20 seconds. Add the chips and stir well. Spread into the 8x8
baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Cool
for about 1 hour at room temperature.
