Secret Ingredient Brownies

Don't they look tempting? These brownies are so good, very dense and they melt in your mouth. I made these the other night when I invited my parents and brother over for dinner and they were a hit. I did not tell anyone what they were made of until everyone had tried one, even after I told them what the secret ingredient was they still had seconds and even thirds. I will be making these again.

So do you want to know what the secret ingredient is?

Would you believe me if I said it is Black Beans?
Yep that is right all you need for these brownies is a brownie mix and a can of black beans!

First you want to rinse your beans really well,
also rinse the can out because you will be putting
the beans back in the can.
Once the beans are rinsed
put them back into the can and fill with water
just enough to cover beans.

Pour the can of beans and water
into food processor and process
until smooth like the picture on
the left.

Next you need to mix your dry brownie mix and pureed beans,
mix well. Pour into a greased brownie pan. Bake according to directions on the brownie box and enjoy!
