I saw a recipe in the latest issue of Woman’s World for black bean brownies as part of a diet plan adapted from the South Beach Diet. I always look for low-carb sweets, so I decided to make them. The only change I made was using extra dark cocoa powder and adding cocoa nibs. It’s an easy recipe. Just combine a can of drained black beans, 4 eggs, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 cup Splenda, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor and process til smooth. Spray a square cake pan with cooking spray and put batter in pan. Bake 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Voila. These are very chocolatey and yummy, especially if you are on a diet! I would totally make these for kids to fake them out. Without the cocoa nibs, each square comes to 56.5 calories, 3.1 grams of fat and 1.5 grams of fiber. If you’re on Weight Watchers, that’s 1 point. Pretty sweet treat!
