Gluten- Free Black Bean Brownies
While, these brownies are more dense and have a different consistency than traditional brownies, they do have a nice, fudgy taste and are only 3 points+ per piece! If you prefer to use all sugar instead of half sugar and half Splenda, then add 1 point.
serves 16 ( 3 points + )
1 can ( 15 oz. ) black beans, rinsed and drained
⅓ c. melted butter
¼ c. baking cocoa
2 tsp. vanilla
½ c. sugar
½ c. Splenda
½ c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Process all ingredients except chocolate chips in a food processor until smooth. Transfer to an 8" square pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the top of the batter. Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes, until brownies are set in the middle. Cool and cut into 16 squares.
