Rich, Fudgy, Healthier Brownies…with a Secret!

40 minutes


16 brownies

Can you believe these amazing rich, fudgy brownies are also healthier and nearly flourless? The secret? Pureed black beans in the batter (yes … black beans! and nope…they’ll never notice they’re there!). They create a dense, thick, moist so-delicious brownie with additional protein & fiber. A yummy, optional chocolate glaze sends these over the top.

Just WW 2 SP each on all myWW plans without chocolate glaze & 3SP each with.

For a fun holiday twist on these you can make minty brownies! Just add in 1/4 tsp peppermint extract and swap in mint-chocolate chips.
It's also fun to decorate the top of these with melted white chocolate and crushed candy canes for Peppermint Bark Brownies!
