black bean browniesthese were a wonderful post race treat!  the food at the Columbia Triathlon was not good.  When i finished, all they had left was pasta salad, dried-out bagels, and puny bananas.  APPARENTLY there were cookies and cliff bars earlier on, but the racers families ate them up DURING THE RACE!  this is a HUGE pet peeve of mine.  I had not seen such moochers until i came to DC and ran the Army 10-miler.  my jaw dropped when i saw overweight race bystanders loading boxes with the racers food.

For brownies, these were pretty healthy.  They have a ‘B’ grade on calorie-count.com.

  • 1 box of brownie mix
  • 1 can black beans
  1. Preheat oven per box directions.
  2. rinse + drain the black beans, then return to their can and fill w/ enough water to cover. (about 1/2″ below the can rim)
  3. use an immersion blender to mix up the beans and water thoroughly.  I blended them for about 3 solid minutes.
  4. stir bean mixture into brownie mix.  spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray, pour in batter and bake per box directions.
