  • 1/2 Cup  unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 Tablespoon  espresso powder
  • 3/4 Cups  egg substitute
  • 2 Tablespoons  low-calorie sugar-free chocolate syrup, such as Walden Farms
  • 2 Tablespoons  reduced-fat sour cream, such as Breakstone’s
  • 1 Tablespoon  unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 Teaspoon  vanilla extract
Yes, you are reading the ingredients list correctly: there are black beans in these brownies. You really have to taste the brownies to believe them. The beans add moisture and texture -- not to mention fiber and protein. These brownies have such a great fudgy texture because the cocoa powder, and just a little espresso powder, are the only dry ingredients (besides a bit of Truvia). For an extra jolt of chocolate flavor and about 15 more calories, stir 1/4 cup dark chocolate-covered cacao nibs (such as Kopali Organics) into the batter just before pouring it into the pan. These brownies are even better the next day.<br/> <br/> Recipe courtesy of <a href=""><em>Now Eat This!: 150 of America's Favorite Comfort Foods, All Under 350 Calories</em></a> by Rocco DiSpirito/Ballantine Books, 2010.
