black bean brownies

I have come across this recipe for black beans brownies now and then.  I finally decided to try them.  The funniest part of the whole thing was the batter tasted like a box mix.  How odd!  My Beloved has actually asked for them again but I have to admit that I have been using the black beans for dinner.  Time to cook more beans!

black bean brownies

15 ounces black beans, drained and rinsed

3 eggs

1/3 cup melted butter

1/4 cup cocoa

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons vanilla

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 to 1 cup mixture of butterscotch and chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Butter a 8 x 8 inch pan.

In a large blender, blend all the ingredients except the chips.  I let it blend for awhile.  Gently mix in the chips.  Pour into pan.  Bake 30 to 35 minutes or unitl a knife comes out clean.  Let cool a bit before cutting.

The boys really liked these.  I have to admit that I like my chocolate torte better but they are very different.

Next time, like the directions, I would stir the chips all the way through.  Time to cook more black beans.
