thanks p_wreath for your input!

i made the brownies recently and added chopped hazelnuts to them - mix in or top the brownies with some (not a whole lot). to me, hazelnuts and chocolate go great together, and i really like this addition. i use navy beans (they're white and very small).. but as long as they're white beans, i'm good.

As a sweetener I always use Whey Low because I am allergic to regular artificial sweeteners. A friend has also used Whey Low in her bean brownies but because I was not going to eat a particular batch that she made she used Splenda instead. She remarked that there is a big difference in the outcome of the brownies when she uses Splenda rather than Whey Low. They are cakier with the WL than they are with the Splenda. Maybe that is one reason people are having trouble with them.

If you haven't tried the Whey Low you should. If it weren't for WL I would not have lost 60+ lbs since last April. Going without sweets completely just didn't cut it when I tried losing weight on other diets.

using less oil makes them more cakey in my experience. instead of 2 Tablespoons, using 1, for instance.

But I haven't tried that w/ the chocolate b/c I like them more dense -and not cakelike.

I apologize if I am asking something already answered - I have looked and haven't found anything - with regards to the bean brownies. I have just finished baking some, they are cooling and smell W O N D E R F U L! Thank you so much to everyone who posts yummy desserts!

How much am I allowed to eat? :lol: I am on phase 1, and I assume they count as a "SweetTreat" ( :P although I'd love to count them as beans....) How much would comprise 75 calories?


Thank you!

In this recipe: There are BEANS?!!!


Yes, we're serious, beans, beans and more beans!!
They are good for you and they're OK in all phases AND THEY TASTE GREAT in that "cake" type recipe.
There are a lot of bean cake recipes in this forum.

They are NOT count as Sweet treats.
A treat is something with NO nutritional value.
This count as a dessert or as your veggies if you like.
Most people cut it in squares and have 1 square per meal, BUT you can have it at more than 1 meal :wink:

:D Thank you so much, Ami! You made my day!

Not only were they quite yummy, but my kids loved them too! Getting veggies into my sons (age 6 and 1) has never been a problem, (in fact they LOVE them) but for some reason my 4 year old daughter is stubborn. But she loved these! (I'm making up another batch with shredded zucchini....hope that turns out okay.)

I'm so happy that SB is bean-happy! I used to be a vegetarian, so a diet without beans just would NOT work for me. Just another reason I'm glad to say I'll never do Atkins again....you know, that and the whole wanting to stay alive and healthy thing.....

Let us know how it goes, Natalie!

I made up a second batch of brownies, but this time I added about 3/4 of a shredded zucchini. They were a little moister - maybe I'll add more next time.

The brownies were gobbled up by me and the four kids! (Always looking for ways to sneak more veggies into my 4-year-old daughter!) An added bonus - the little guy I look after (15 months old) has had a problem with (ahem) "regularity" lately - these brownies fixed that, and weren't nearly as harsh as prunes are on his system! (Bonus for me, being the diapie-changer and all.... :P )

Probably more info than anyone needed..... :roll:

I made the brownies last night. They are good and hard to believe they have beans. I used black beans b/c i thought they would be better for the color. Mine made 12 brownies so I figure 2 per day and count them as 1 serving of beans. Does that sound pretty close?? I have tried to keep my bean servings to 1/3-1/2 only twice a day.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

I made these tonight with black beans and I was really disappointed. The texture was extremely dense and too dry, and the flavor was strange and not sweet. Also, I think they gave me indigestion.

Not to discourage others, but not something I'll be making again.

I googled it and found this for you:

15-oz can beans = 1 1/2 cooked beans, drained
1 pound dry beans = 6 cups cooked beans, drained
1 pound dry beans = 2 cups dry beans
1 cup dry beans = 3 cups cooked beans, drained

I hope it helps
