Healthy Brownies

Who doesn't like brownies?  How about healthy brownies??  I was browsing the Internet for an easy gluten-free brownie recipe recently and found something called black bean brownies.  Hmmm...didn't sound all that appealing at first, but I decided to give it a try anyway and was pleasantly surprised!  I still haven't told my oldest son what exactly is in these tasty little treats, but he sure does gobble them up!  ;-)

So how about making some healthy brownies for Valentine's Day?

Gluten-Free Black Bean Brownies
1 (15 oz) can of black beans, drained & rinsed
3 eggs
5 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Powdered sugar, optional

Preheat oven to 350.  Puree black beans, eggs, cocoa powder, vanilla, salt, and sugar in food processor or blender.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Pour into greased 8 x 8 pan.  Bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
