Dylan’s Power Brownies

Over Memorial Day weekend, a friend was involved in a terrible accident. He suffered extreme electrical burns. On a few good notes, he is going to eventually be ok and is able to recover at one of the best burns centers in San Antonio. During his recovery, he needs a high-protein, high-calorie diet. Doing the only thing I know how to do, I made up a recipe that makes eating all those calories a little sweeter.

Dylan’s recipe is based on this healthier version, for those of watching your calories.

For Dylan’s recipe, you’ll need:
1 can black beans (rinsed)
3 eggs
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1-2 tablespoons chocolate flavored whey protein powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Begin by blending the black beans into a paste. Use teaspoons of water at a time as needed until smooth. It will be thick- that’s ok.

Next whisk dry ingredients together.

Add eggs, butter and black bean paste. Mix until smooth. I used a fork, break out the hand mixer if you need to. Mix on medium speed for one minute.

Bake in a small baking dish. Be sure to grease the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.
