My sister in law, Barbara, inspired this rendition of Kaleen's original Black Bean Brownies. Can I just say- WOW! I may just eat ONLY brownies today! These truly are DROP DEAD delicious! (unless you hate them, and then I apologize :)
2 pkg, Hershey’s Kisses Brownie Mix (2 - 1 lbs 4 oz mixes) Costco has a 6 pack
1 - 15 oz can black beans w/ liquid, pureed in the blender
4 egg whites
¼ C water
12 oz frozen cherries, cut in half (about 2 ½ C)
Puree beans in the blender with their juice, and the ¼ C water. Once pureed, add the egg whites and blend to incorporate. Pour blender contents into a bowl with the brownie mix. Mix until just moistened. Fold in Cherries. Do not over mix. Mix all ingredients together, until just mixed, do not over mix. Bake in a large glass 9x13 (mine is actually 10-1/4 x 15-1/4), greased baking dish, for 40 min, 375 degrees, and 10 min with the oven off. Cut into 42 squares . 2 PPV per brownie. You can leave out the cherries for the same POINT value.
