I believe all ingredients are beneficial if you substitute the black beans for one of the beneficial kind!

Wonder can I squeeze some time out of today to make these....

http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/amazing-black-bean-brownies-recipe.html

I came across these looking for recipes to incorporate more beans into my diet and satisfying my 'can't -get-rid-of' sweet tooth without grain carbs.
Doing both done at the same time.....neat!

Yvonne - I have a similar recipe that was given to me and it does not have butter in it. With SWAMI I get 6 TSP oil weekly and on top of that some ghee and of course the fat from meat, fish etc. When someone made this recipe for me, they substituted the wheat flour for : 1 TBS ground flax put into 3/4 cup measuring cup and topped it off with brown rice flour. This weekend I will make these and substitute the sugar for agave. From the research that I have done online, I will substitute 1 cup of sugar with 3/4 cup agave.

Double Chocolate Brownies

1 1/2 cups canned black beans, rinsed, drained
3/4 cup whole- wheat flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder (gluten-free)
1/2 tsp salt
3 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 tbsp canola oil
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
 
1.  Preheat oven to 350 F.  Line and 8-inch square metal baking pan with foil, leaving 2 inch overhang at opposite ends.  Lightly spray foil with non-stick cooking spray.
2.  In a large bowl, combine beans, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.  With a wooden spoon, beat eggs, sugar, applesauce, oil and vanilla until well blended.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Pour into prepared pan.
3.  Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until just a few moist crumbs cling to a tester inserted in the centre.  Do not over-bake.  Let cool in pan on a wire rack.  Using foil overhangs as handles, remove from the pan and transfer brownies to cutting board.  Cut into squares.

Nice way to eat beans, eh?

Yvonne - it's true what Lola mentions. If you have candida, you will crave the sweets. When candida free, you can take it or leave it. I have been candida free for a couple of years and while I enjoy at times something with a cup of green tea, I do not have the cravings. It's the 'yeasty-beasties' that crave the sugar and we comply by feeding them!

Also, I much prefer fruit or a dessert that is not too sweet.

P.S. - I made the above brownie with 3/4 cup agave and it is a tad too sweet for me; I also added an extra TBS. ground flax and extra TBS. of brown rice flour as it was runny.
In my next attempt, I will add 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree & 1/4 cup agave and I may put in a  bit of rosemary and/or sage.

My family said don't change the recipe, they don't find it too sweet. When it was cooled down it was no as sweet tasting. Very filling and no blood sugar swings! Amazing fiber as well!

I made it with 2x as much apple puree, less agave, 2x as much cocoa, chia seeds & half the eggs, no oil & it was still really really good...

Possum - Thanks for sharing. I think I'll use some of your ideas. Isn't this a great recipe!
With a cup of green tea I think I've died and gone to heaven! lol.

Possum, your footnote always makes me smile! I'm running : )
I'll also incorporate your ideas into the recipe once I get around to trying it!

Thanks Lola for the links! I didn't think I had a Candida problem...I do eat the way the questionaire suggested, I do eat a lot of veggies but I don't know if I am pear or apple shaped- my partner says if he had to pick he'd think I would be apple shaped.
When I put on weight it is always on boobs and lower belly  

When I crave sweet things it is easily satisfied with something small, but I do like 'cake like' things and given the choice between a savoury or sweet cake I think I'd like the sweet one.

What I do find though (and it was discussed before) ....when I eat grain carbs I want sugar and more grain and more sugar....
When I stay away from grain I am more satisfied by what I eat and I don't automatically look for
something sugary.

Does this still point to Candita??

Cheers!! I like (& miss) my dancing cat in my signature line too, that has now been banished... Glad you like the changes in the recipe too Btw - If you use oil at all, I would not use canola oil ever... It is rapeseed oil

OMG how amazing.  I sent to immediate family.  My dad is a real cook not so much a baker and very health conscious so I doubt he will make.  My sister though has kids so she might really get a kick out of it.

That recipe looks so good! I'll just have to omit the vanilla and the instant coffee. I'm talking about the one Yyvone linked to, not the one Dianne posted. Dianne's recipe would require too many subs to be worth my while.
