Healthy Brownies!

     Have you ever heard those two words together???  Well, I'm here to tell you that you are one lucky dude today...I made them and have been told several times that they are really good!  I happen to be on a 21 day fast from sweets and have not tasted them yet...come Sunday I will find out how good they are!

     Here is all you need to make these brownies...

      I pureed the beans, juice and all, in my magic can use your blender, mini just want the beans to be lump-free.  Spray your pan...I used a 7 x 10 glass pan to make the brownies thicker.

I sprinkled these little goodies on the top of the brownie dough before I baked them.  If you don't like mint, you can use mini m & m's or chocolate chips, peanut butter get the idea...

Mine baked almost 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  I only let them cool about 10 minutes...then cut them with my trusty expensive plastic knife...remember me telling you many blog stories ago about how neat the plastic knife is when cutting warm brownies, cake, bars, etc.  It's amazing!

I know, it looks like I'm all ready to eat this scrumptious plate of brownies with was a set-up just to let you see how thick and chewy they look...I put them back in the pan...just until the 22nd day...and then I drank the milk!  Just wasn't the same without the brownies!

     You can figure out the calorie count/WW points for this food by using the dry ingredient calorie count on the box, this one was 100 calories, plus the can of beans...figures out to 110 calories per 1/20th of a pan...not fats, no cholesterol...just chocolate!  I swear you can't taste the beans, but the fiber content makes it a reward to eat.   Enjoy!
