This may sound weird, but trust us. Make yummy, moist brownies with this secret ingredient -- black beans!
Drain a 15-ounce can of beans. Puree them in a blender with 1/4 cup water. Mix the beans with a boxed brownie mix. Don't add anything else (eggs, water, or oil) and then bake as the box directs.
Why it's better: These brownies still taste sweet but the beans cut calories and replace unhealthy saturated fats.
Bonus: fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
