Delicious Fat-Free Healthy Fudgy Brownies My Way

Family Favorites


Although I make plenty of full-fat desserts and dishes for friends and family, my personal eating is pretty healthy. I have also fallen into the habit of having to have something sweet after every meal. This is my perfect solution.

I had been buying individually wrapped, 90 calorie brownie packs, but these taste so much better and omit the chemistry test of ingredients.

I know that the idea of black bean brownies is nothing new, but try the addition of these few added ingredients and you'll never buy $3.00 a box store-bought, low-cal dessert bars again. My 13x9 pan costs just $1.89!

How to Make Delicious Fat-Free Healthy Fudgy Brownies My Way


  1. Puree can of black beans WITH LIQUID.
  2. Empty contents of boxed brownie mix into a medium bowl. Add pureed beans, vanilla, cocoa powder, cinnamon and vanilla. Mix well.
  3. Pour into prepared pan. 8x8, 9x9 and 13x9 can all be used. Follow baking directions for the appropriate size pan on the box. When baking in a glass pan, I bake at 325 degrees. Don't over-bake.
  4. Allow to cool. If desired, I like to cut into 24 bars (13x9 pan) and store at room temp. in individual sandwich bags ready to throw into lunches or your purse. Enjoy (guilt free!)
