Vegan Bean Brownies?

I don’t know many who can pass up a good brownie. I rarely bake a pan of brownies because inevitably, I eat at least half of the pan. However I may start making them more frequently thanks to a recent experiment I tried. 

I made very tasty Vegan Blondies a couple of weeks ago inspired by Ambitious Kitchen; using chick peas in the recipe intrigued me. I thought why not try black beans as a substitute for oil, eggs, or applesauce when making brownies. 

I purchased Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie mix (If you visit Ghirardelli’s Facebook page, you can get a $1 off coupon), added a 15 oz can of Bush’s black beans, rinsed, drained, and pureed in the food processor, and 1C of water. I combined those three simple ingredients, and baked it at 325° for 25-30 minutes. 

Family members in my house vary in age, from 3 to 63. Everyone enjoyed this scrumptious treat and I felt good eating this surprisingly chocolatey, and moist dessert.
