Black Bean Brownies

The following is a real recipe.

Take these 2 ingredients:

Drain and rinse the black beans. Put them in a blender/food processer along with 1 cup of water. Puree.

Mix the beans in with the brownie mix.
No eggs, oil, anything.

Taste the batter and wonder where the bean taste/smell has gone to.
Bake according the the box directions.
(actually took about 10 min longer then what it said)

Let them cool, then eat.
Then give them to your family but don't tell them what's different.
After you explain the ingredients prepare to defend yourself against accusations of trying to be "vegan".

Low calorie/Low fat brownies.
With lots of fiber.
That taste just like brownies.
Only different.
In a good way.
It has been decided that adding chocolate chips in wouldn't be such a bad idea either.
I dare you to try it.
