I served these brownies to my husband the other night BEFORE telling him what was in them, and his mind was completely blown. I guarentee you that if you served them to your friends they would never guess they were sugar-free, low-carb or made with black beans!! As with many such recipes they taste better after a day or two cold OR heated in the microwave. I like mine with some whipped cream:)
2 15oz cans of UNSEASONED black beans, rinsed and drained WELL
3-4 oz cream cheese, softened
8 large eggs
4 Tbsp oil
2 Tbsp Vanilla extract
2 Cups Splenda
6 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Begin by draining and rinsing the black beans WELL in your sink. Place in your mixing bowl and mix while scraping the sides of the bowl. Add cream cheese and continue to mix. Add a couple eggs at a time, mixing well in between. You want those beans WELL processed. Add in oil and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients in a small, separate bowl before slowly adding to wet mixture and continue to mix until batter is well blended.
Bake in a 9x13 pan for about 35 minutes at 350 degrees.
Depending on your pan and oven you may want to check with a toothpick before the 35 minutes;)
Serve hot or cold with cream, berries, sugar free chocolate glaze or ice cream!
I’d love to hear what you think of the recipe if you try it or if you make any improvements!
I’ve made these before with a different recipe; they were decent but not a great substitute. I ended up having to melt an ounce of dark chocolate into the batter to give them more flavor but I’ll try this version as is.
