Triple Chocolate Brownies (Lighter)
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Make Again: Yes
Recipe Source: Everyday Food (January 2012)
The annual "light" issue always includes lighter desserts. I'm not a big fan of those. I think I'm better off eating less desserts but enjoying them in full. However, the idea of using black beans in brownies has been around for a while now and I've always wanted to try it.
These are really good. They are extremely moist and fudgy which is the way I like my brownies. The recipe only used 1/4 of black beans, so they are definitely hidden. It allows you to only use 1/2 stick of butter for the recipe.
I would definitely make these again. The only issue is using only 1/4 c. of black beans. I can use up the rest of the can, but that is still a tiny bit of a downside in my mind.
