Festive Holiday Brownies
Canned low sodium black beans
1 cup(s), rinsed and drained
Plain fat free Greek yogurt
1 large egg(s)
Unsweetened cocoa powder
White self-rising flour
1½ oz, green and red (M&Ms or similar product; about 1/4 cup)
1 tbsp(s), green and red
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper; coat the paper with cooking spray.
- Place the beans in a food processor; process until mostly smooth, stopping to scrape the sides of the bowl as needed, about 1 minute. Add the yogurt and vanilla; process until completely smooth, about 1 minute. Add the egg; process until just combined.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the cocoa, sugar, flour, and salt. Add the bean mixture to the cocoa mixture; stir until a thick, smooth batter forms. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 350°F until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs, about 20 minutes.
- Remove the pan from the oven. Sprinkle the marshmallows over the top of the brownies. Cool slightly, then top with chocolate candies and sprinkles. Using the parchment paper, lift the brownies out of the pan. Cut into 16 squares.
- Serving size: 1 brownie
