Never say Never to eating Sweets!

I don't believe in saying I'm never going to eat sweet's. That just sets yourself up for failure! So just find different ways to make things that you love! Or eat less of what you love! The first bite taste just like the last bite, so no need to eat 500!

I just read about these today, and I had everything to make them, so Of course I had to try!!!

One 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed very well
3 large eggs
3 tablespoons EVOO
3.../4 cup Xylitol (or splenda or stevia) (i used great value zero cal sweetner)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch salt
1/4 Baking Soda
2 tablespoons of butter

1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Prepare muffin tins with paper liners, set aside.
2. Place the black beans in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs, oil, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, baking powder, , baking soda, butter, and salt and process until smooth.
3. Pour the batter into the muffin tins.
4. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan.

12 muffins,  99 calories each!

They taste a little different, but if you have kids, THEY WILL NEVER KNOW the difference! You don't taste black beans at all!

Give it a try!!!
