Secret Ingredient Brownies

If you dont tell 'em, they will never know!
At least as far as these brownies go.
Give them a try I promise you that everyone
will love the fudgy chewiness of them,
and go back for more! ;)
*adapted from recipe*

Black Bean Brownies
  • 3/4 C.  Black Beans
  • 1/2 C. Oil or Applesauce
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 C.  Cocoa powder
  • 3/4 C. Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Chocolate Extract
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla 
  • 1/2 C. Mini Chocolate Chips~divided
  • 1/3 C. Flour
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt (unless you are using canned)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 9-inch square baking pan.
In a blender, puree the beans with the oil. Add the eggs, cocoa, sugar, extract, and vanilla. Melt half the chocolate chips and add to the blender. Blend on medium-high until smooth. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to the blender and pulse until just incorporated. Stir in the remaining chocolate chips. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake until the surface looks somewhat matte around the edges and still a bit shiny in the middle, about 20 minutes. Let cool at least 15 minutes before cutting and removing from the pan. 
Dust with powdered sugar and serve

Oh how I love hiding food ingredients! =) Yours look lovely. I'm sure they are very tasty and I would eat the whole plateful if you sat them in front of me.
