I've heard of that, too, and didn't want to say it. A friend says she drains black beans and adds them to her brownie mix. I'm not convinced.

Beans don't sound that crazy.There are a ton of asian sweet bean recipes like Mochi and Moon cakes. I think I would mash them first though.

I, too, had heard of that using black beans. A few days ago I saw several recipes online. I'm fairly adventurous when it comes to cooking but that sounds . . . . interesting.

I'd like to hear if someone really uses beans and if the taste is good. Remember the cake that was made with tomato soup? Strange things to us may not be that strange to others. Of course, I've never tasted the tomato soup cake. I do remember my grandmother making a chocolate cake that was called "Millionaire's Chocolate Cake" - it had mayonnaise in it. It didn't taste any different and was very moist.

Right, mayo is OK in cakes. I don't tell my family though.

Healthy Add Ins for Boxed Brownies Hi. This is my first post. Glad to find this great site. Anyone have a suggestion on something to add or sub to give boxed brownies some "oomph?" I'd like to add oatmeal, wheat germ, or something, but not sure how to best adjust the other ingredients to compensate for the extras. Hope I'm being clear. Thanks in advance. :smile: Zoogirl 3 stars 1 reviews
