Here's the perfect scenario-a dense, moist brownie packed with cocoa, polyphenols and bean nutrition-protein, fiber, and even antioxidants! The beans replace the grains and some of the fat in this gluten-free, egg-free brownie. I guarantee that nobody will guess the magic ingredients-black beans-in this delicious treat. What a great way to get kids (and grownups) to eat their beans.~From Plant Powered for Life by Sharon Palmer

To keep the nuts from getting too brown or burning, either stir them in to the batter, or place a piece of aluminum foil on top of the brownies half way through baking.
