"Lower the calories at the same time you are packing in more protein into these tasty, fudgy brownies. You won't be able to tell you added a secret ingredient. Makes for a perfect and healthy after school snack. My children had no idea I tinkered with their favorite chocolate treat. Add it with berries, top with powdered sugar or just eat it alone. These moist treats will not disappoint. A quick treat to whip up. Only a few minutes to prepare and 25 to bake."

I love that you can use beans to make this recipe. I never knew you could use any bean or veggie in desserts until my mom made a chocolate zucchini cake. I couldn't even tell because the cake was so moist. What a neat way to get some more good nutrients in your diet and have something sweet.
