Delicious Low-Fat Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies


  • 1 1/3 c. water
  • 2/3 c. + 2 T. bean puree (use either white or black beans)
  • 1 1/2 T. white distilled vinegar
  • 1/3 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 T. salt (yes, this is a tablespoon not teaspoon)
  • 1 t. baking soda


Pre-heat oven to 350. In medium sized bowl, combine water, bean puree, vinegar and peanut butter and mix well. In a separate bowl, mix flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda. Mix the dry ingredients well with wet ingredients. Pour in well greased 9x13 pan and bake for 27-35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Top with icing directly out of the oven.

*it isn't a mistake that there are no eggs listed in this recipe. It does NOT call for eggs.
