Black Bean Brownies

I've heard of black bean brownies before, but was always a bit skeptical.  Would I be able to taste the black beans through the chocolate?  I made these a few weeks back and the answer to that question is nope! This is a super easy way to get your chocolate fix AND add get a serving or two of protein!

1 box of Brownie Mix (Duncan Hines, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, ...)
1 14.5 oz. can of black beans

Drain, rinse black beans thoroughly.  Add beans back into the can and fill the can with water.  Puree black beans and water in a blender and blend until completely smooth.  Add to brownie mix only (do not add whatever the mix tells you to add.  Just use the dry mix).  Mix the brown mix and black bean puree until well combined.  Pour in a greased baking dish and bake according to package.  Your brownies are done once a toothpick comes out clean.

This brownie is a little denser and "fudgier", but still so good!
