“Another recipe for bean brownies, but this one uses a boxed mix as the base. Replacing all or some of the oil/fat in your brownies with pureed beans provides a deliciously lower fat, lower cholesterol, high fiber snack! Instead of using black beans, this recipe uses white kidney beans, or cannellini beans. By experimenting with different extracts, zests, chips and nuts, you've got an endless supply of unique brownie flavors!”
