Found you all a decadent and good-for-you black bean and peanut butter swirl brownie off of a new foodie/health site called DAMY.

Black Bean Brownies with Peanut Butter Swirl

Prep time: 10 Minutes – Cook time: 30 Minutes – Total time: 40 Minutes
Yield: Makes 12-16 Brownies

Black Bean Brownie Ingredients:
•1 Can Black Beans (540 mL)
•1 Egg
•1/4 Cup Eggwhites (or 3 Eggs in total)
•1/3 Cup Pumpkin Puree (or unsweetened apple sauce)
•1/2 Cup Natural Cocoa Powder
•1/4 Tsp Sea Salt
•2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
•1/4 Cup All Natural Pure Coconut Sap Sugar (or 1/4 Cup Agave, Honey or Maple Syrup)
•2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
•1 1/2 Tsp Instant Coffee
•1 Tsp Baking Powder
•1/4 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips (more if you wish)

Peanut Butter Swirl Ingredients:
•1/3 Cup Peanut Butter
•1 Tbsp Agave (Maple Syrup, Stevia or Honey)
•Pinch of Salt
•Dash of Vanilla Extract

1.Pre-heat your oven to 350 F.
2.Place all black bean brownie ingredients into your food processor and blend until smooth.
3.Spray an 8×8 baking dish with a healthy, non-stick cooking spray.
4.Evenly spread batter into baking dish.
5.On your stove-top melt peanut butter swirl ingredients and mix.
6.Dollop peanut butter swirl mixture with a spoon spaced out about an inch from each other onto the brownie batter.
7.Pull a knife back and forth through the batter creating your swirls.
8.Place in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes.
9.*Ovens vary so your discretion is needed. You will know your brownies are baked when the top becomes firm and the brownies pull away from the sides of the dish.
10.Sticking a tooth pick in the middle and pulling it out clean will ensure your brownies are baked fully.
11.Remove from oven when baked and let set in the baking dish for about 10 minutes.
12.Gently cut brownies, serve and enjoy!
13.To store brownies it is best to first let them cool completely and then store them in a sealed tight container in the refrigerator.
