Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - Chef Kimberly Brock-Brown prepares Rich and Healthy Chocolate Brownies!

Rich & Healthy Chocolate  Brownies


12 oz  Beans, black, unsalted, fat free, canned
4 oz  Baking Chocolate, unsweetened, square
1 tbsp  Butter, Unsalted
6 each  egg whites
2 cup  sugar
3 tbsp  white all purpose flour
2 tbsp  instant espresso powder
1/2 cup  chopped walnuts

1 each  cooking spray



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and spray a 9x13-inch pan with nonstick vegetable spray.
  2. Place the beans in a colander, and rinse thoroughly under running water to remove "gunk"; set aside to drain.
  3. Place the chocolate and light butter in a small microwavable bowl. Microwave for 60 to 90 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth.
  4. In a food processor blender, add the drained beans and 3 egg whites. Blend or process until smooth.
  5. In a large bowl, combine the bean purée, sugar, flour, espresso powder, and remaining egg whites. With an electric mixer, beat until well combined. Mix in the melted chocolate.
  6. Pour the brownie mixture into prepared pan. Sprinkle the walnuts on top of the brownie batter, and bake for 30 to 35 minutes until the brownie pulls away from the sides of the pan.
  7. Cool completely in the pan before cutting into bars -- rows of six by five. Makes 30 brownies.
