Healthy Substitution of the Week! Get a load of these fiber rich black bean brownies (you’d never guess they were made with black beans and coconut oil instead of butter and eggs). Oriental medicine teaches that black beans are a warming food that help with lower back pain, infertility, and more. Black beans, along with coconut oil are also great for you heart. All you need is brownie mix (we chose Trader Joe’s yummy Truffle Brownie Mix), 1 can of black beans, and coconut oil.
- Rinse and drain 1 can of black beans. Puree the black beans in a food processor (a blender also works). You may want to add a little bit of water to make the pureeing easier.
- Mix the black bean puree with 1 Tbsp. of coconut oil, and brownie mix.
- Follow the baking instructions on your brownie mix. We baked our brownies for 25 minutes on 350 degrees.
- Let cool, and enjoy a surprisingly healthy treat :)
