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