Magic brownies have been a favorite Weight Watchers recipe for many health conscious brownie lovers. The "magic" ingredient is pureed black beans to add fiber and protein. There are so many variations of this recipe. I opted to go for a quick and easy version that can be made with only a few ingredients on hand.
Magic Brownies Recipe
1 (15 oz.) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 t. cinnamon
1 box brownie mix (my favorite is Betty Crocker Ultimate Fudge)
1 banana or 1/4 c. applesauce (optional to add moistness)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a food processor, puree black beans with cinnamon, and banana or applesauce until smooth.
Transfer to mixing bowl, and combine with brownie mix. Stir by hand until shiny and mostly lump-free. Pour batter into a greased 8x8 baking pan. Bake for about 30 minutes.
Brownies will be rich, moist, and fudgy. Cool before cutting.
