    Better-for-You Tip: No, we didn’t forget to list flour in the ingredients. Instead, we packed these decadent brownies with good-for-you black beans, dark chocolate, fat-free milk and used vegetable oil, rather than butter or shortening. The best part? They taste amazing and no one will ever know how good they are for them. It’s up to you if you want to share our little secret as to what makes these so good for you, compared to traditional brownies. Keep in mind though, while these are better for you than standard brownies, they should still be eaten in moderation as a sweet ending to a balanced meal.

    • Black beans contribute fiber and protein
    • Dark chocolate reduces the added sugar
