Work For Me Wednesday and Non Fat Brownies, a super easy recipe!

This weeks theme for Work For Me Wednesday is Back to School. A fun idea is to make lunch sacks ahead of time for the year. You could even get the kids involved in making them. You can even make little notes of encouragement to put in each sack. We all know how hectic school mornings are! Head on over to We Are That Family for some more ideas!

A friend of mine at the gym told me about these brownies, so I decided to try them. I looked at all the low fat brownie mixes at the store, and it turns out that a regular brownie mix has less calories in the dry mix than the low fat. That's looking at just the mix before you add any other ingredients. So, I went with a regular brownie mix. My family loves these! They are more cakey then my regular brownies, but the have a great chocolate flavor and they are super easy to make!

Non Fat Brownies

1 brownie mix
1 can of black beans, rinsed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x9 or 8x8 inch pan with Pam.

After rinsing the beans, put them back into the can and fill the can with water, then dump the whole thing into the blender and puree.

In a mixing bowl mix the pureed beans and the brownie mix until well blended. Pour into prepared pan and bake 40-45 minutes. Cool, then cut into squares.
