30 Days of Photos: Day Seven

It is day seven of my 30 Days of Photos challenge (feel free to join me at any time).

While this isn't exactly a picture it is an image so it is only a minor cheat. Have a look at my black bean brownies. (scroll down for recipe)


1 package brownie mix
1 can of black beans
2 eggs
3 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon instant coffee


Rinse black beans and put in blender with eggs, oil, and coffee. Blend until smooth. You will still be able to see little fragments. Pour the brownie mix in a bowl then add blended beans. Mix with spoon until just blended. Pour into lightly greased 8x8 baking dish and bake at 325 for about 35 minutes. Let cool and apply icing.

Black bean brownies are firmer than regular brownies and you can't taste the beans and I haven't noticed any gas issues probably because they are sort of partially digested.
