Gluten Free Black Bean Brownies with Epicure’s Maple Bacon Sea Salt

Pin It
Doctored this recipe a bit from one posted on the Epicure Consultants website.  Thanks to Heather for sharing this great idea!

PointsPlus™ Value:    1     (3 points+ for 2!)
Servings:  24

4 large egg(s)  
1 tsp baking powder  
1 cup Splenda
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa  
19 oz canned black beans  
1/3 cup chocolate chips  

Combine everything except chocolate chips in a blender. Blend until smooth. Fold in your chips. Pour into an 8"square pan (or mini muffin tins) - SPRAY PAN WELL...these WILL stick. Bake at 350 for 30 mins. Check after about 20 mins.  Sprinkle hot brownies with Epicure’s Maple Bacon Sea Salt.  Enjoy!

Update:  these were so good!  I got 24 "two bite brownies" out of this recipe.  One brownie is perfect!  The puff up nicely in the muffin tins.  I think if making them in a pan, you may want a larger pan than 8", or your brownies might be too thick.  You can replace the chocolate chips with other things - craisins, other dried fruit, coconut... play around and let me know what you come up with!  I'm not a GF person, so I can't tell you what changing the mix ins will do to the GF status of this recipe.
