Low Calorie - High Protein Brownies! (From allrecipes.com) Sounds too good to be true? It isn't! When I made the milk chocolate brownies a couple of weeks ago, I researched brownies on the web and came across a recipe for ?black bean brownies?. Intrigued, I read dozens of reviews about these ?healthy? brownies and they were all ecstatic. So the next day I bought a can of organic black beans and started baking! Of course, the brownie batter is not very lickable and you may be skeptical at first, but when they are baking in the oven and the mesmerizing smell of cocoa fills your kitchen, you are a goner! I can't believe I'm saying this, but these are the best brownies I have ever made! The pureed beans makes them so incredibly gooey and moist. And the fact that these are quite healthy and low in calories, makes them guilt-free. Who wouldn't want that? Rating: 4.5 out of 5.
