The combination of two ingredients are what gives these brownies the rich delicious taste that other higher fat brownies have in them.
THE NOT-SO-SECRET INGREDIENT
The use of black beans add a ton of nutrients such as protein, fiber, antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids. Protein in black beans compared to the protein in lean meats, have minimal amounts of saturated fat and contains zero cholesterol.
Protein also increases muscles mass and lean tissue. Foods high in fiber will leave you feeling fuller longer so these protein brownies will actually decrease your need to indulge. Although, you will feel like you are after one taste!
Foods rich in antioxidants have been known to lower the risk of heart disease and different types of cancer. Also, antioxidants such as vitamins A, C and E, and other minerals like selenium will improve our immune system.
HELPS LOSE WEIGHT
As we stated above black beans are rich in fiber which expands and prevents you from overindulging which aids in weightloss. They also contain minimal calories so these are a perfect addition for anybody trying to lose weight.

I reached 200 pounds after having my children and several things have led me down my path of wanting to be healthier and better for myself and for my family; countless fitness dvds, a gym membership, leading a weight management class at my church and a personal trainer telling me I had good symmetry.
My husband and I have competed in several competitions from 2012 from 2015. Every competition brought more information on how to be better and stronger both mentally and physically.
I have learned many things on my fitness journey, but the one thing that I hear over and over no matter what size they are, is the self-talk that many women tell themselves regarding the way they see themselves. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have the tools and wisdom of the people around me to help women of all shapes and dynamics to help them on their journey.
