Now that the New Year is hear, I want to start paying attention to what I eat, and what I snack on. I gained a couple of pounds during the holidays because of course I wasn’t thinking about what I was putting in my mouth and stopped working.



These are brownies that are healthy and taste great. We all like them and my kids couldn’t guess that they were made with black beans.

Go ahead and give it a try.



1 can of black beans (drained and rinsed)

3 eggs

3 tablespoons of oil ( you can try and substitute unsweetened applesauce which is what I will do the next time I make these)

4 tablespoons of cocoa powder

1 pinch of salt

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

3/4 cups of sugar

1/4 cup of mini choc. chips ( I used dark chocolate)

1 teaspoon of instant coffee granules (optional)
