Triple Chocolate Brownies

As you can probably tell, around here we LOVE brownies.  We love the Basic One Bowl Brownies, Oreo Brownies, and the Chocolate Mint Brownies.  Recently I made some dulce de leche (because I had left over sweetened condensed milk) and after the first lick I knew it needed a brownie beneath it! 

And believe it or not, I found a WONDERFUL FUDGY brownie recipe in the January/February 2012 Issue of Everyday Food Magazine, which happens to be their Light Issue!  And here’s the secret… the reason they made it in the light issue is because they have 3 grams less fat per brownie than a regular brownie.  BECAUSE… you cut the amount of butter by also adding……… BLACK BEANS!  Who would’ve thought??? Not me!  And to be honest I was skeptical.  But they were wonderful! 

Of course this is information that I kept to myself until after my kids and husband had devoured theirs.  Because topped with a little dulce de leche, a few chocolate chips, and some coarse salt(which is very reminiscent of the Brownies with Salted Caramel Icing that we love!) you would never know that there is less fat and a little added fiber!
