Monday’s Bread Bowl: Guiltless Brownies

A healthy dose of sweetness

We tried this rendition of healthier brownies that calls for black beans and canned pumpkin.  Here’s the recipe:

What you will need:

1 medium-sized bowl

1 (8 X 11 inch) baking dish

1 baking spatula

1 food processor

Non-stick cooking spray

2 whole eggs

1 (29 oz) can of black beans, drained

1 (15 oz) can pumpkin puree

¾ cup cocoa powder

1/3 cup flaxseed

2/3 cup agave syrup

Pinch of salt


1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

½ cup walnuts, crushed

Cooking & Directions:

Preheat oven at 350 degrees.  Combine dry ingredients, pumpkin, syrup, and black beans in food processor.  Pulse and puree until ingredients become a smooth batter.  Add eggs and pulse again until smooth.  Spray baking dish with non-stick oil spray.  Pour batter and level out with spatula.  Place in oven to bake for 35 to 40 minutes until knife through the center comes out clean after insertion.  Remove baked brownies from oven then top with chocolate chips and crushed walnuts.  Let brownies cool to room temperature before serving.
