(You wouldn't believe what these babies are made of!)
Not your mouth-watering, can't-stop-eating kind of brownie, but they surprisingly
do the trick, and you really CAN just eat one!
(AND there's no 'sugar crash'!)
-1 can no-salt added black beans, drained and rinsed (believe it!)
-4 egg whites
-1/3c canola or olive oil
-1/4c cocoa powder
-dash of salt
-2tsp vanilla
-1/2c sucanat **
-1/2c gluten-free dark or carob choc. chips
-1/3c finely chopped walnuts
** I used 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder and 1/4 c sucanat
(I also sprinkled unsweetened organic coconut on top)

Pre-heat oven to 350'F
Place black beans, eggs, oil, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla extract and sucanat in a food processor and blend until smooth. Remove the blade and gently stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Transfer mixture to a 8x8 baking dish (sprayed w/ pam)
Bake for 30-35 min, or until just set in the center, let cool.
