Healthy Beans and Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Yes! this recipe uses black beans in these brownies. Beans are an excellent and inexpensive source of protein that can be added to many dishes. One cup of Kidney beans provides 43% of the recommended daily intake of fiber, which helps to lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease. Black beans are loaded with cancer-fighting antioxidants and pinto beans are packed with thiamin, a nutrient that has been proven to protect memory function. Beans are high in fiber, iron, vitamin B9, magnesium potassium, vitamin B1, and protein! How to Enjoy: The uses are endless! They can be added to any dish or served as a side to increase nutritional value and taste. Fun Fact! Try these amazing black bean brownies...you will never know they are bean based!

Ingredients:
1 19oz can of organic black beans, drained and rinsed well
1 organic or free range egg
2 organic or free range egg whites (1/4 cup of carton egg whites)
2 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup stevia baking formula (or ½ cup of regular cane sugar)
1/4 cup earth balance vegan spread, melted (or you could use butter)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup semi-sweet or dark organic chocolate chips
2 Tbsp all natural organic peanut butter
*Add shredded coconut or nuts as desired.


Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray and 8×8 inch pan with cooking spray. Blend all ingredients (except earth balance or butter) in a food processor or powerful blender until very well blended. You may need to scrape the sides and blend again. When its just about finished processing, add in the melted earth balance (or butter). Then stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
Spread into the prepared pan. Swirl in the peanut butter into the top of the batter. Bake for 25-30 minutes until set around the outside and in the middle. It will just start to crack. Don't test with a toothpick, as it won't come out clean. You want them to be fudge-like anyway!
Cool completely and cut into 16 squares. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. In our opinion, they taste even better fully cooled!

Wellness Tip
Making a Splash
Water aerobics classes can provide great low-impact workouts. They are easy on the joints of those who are overweight, suffer from arthritis, or have other joint problems. For those with asthma, the more temperate conditions of a heated indoor pool can be easier on the lungs. Contact facilities in your area to inquire about classes that may be right for you.
