Beautiful walk to the beach with the kids and dog! It was sunny, warm, spacious and just what we needed. AND there wasn't any complaining! Thankful for our gorgeous home & planet!

Yeah, it's been sitting in that same spot untouched all day. Mason has completely hit his limit with this "distance learning". And I'll be honest I'm almost ready to call it summer break already(a month early)! It was going so well until about 2 weeks ago when his defiant personality decided it was done with this type of schooling, and depression and social anxiety in full swing! Isolation is so tough on ours/everyone's mental health and I don't know if we can take anymore of it!

2020 is the year I told myself I'd start focusing on a healthier lifestyle and one thing I've been working on is eating a plant based diet. I've still got a ways to go but I'll get there and so far I feel great! 🌳I've partnered with LightLife to bring you this post, but all opinions are my own. One thing I'm new to is tempeh, after eating the vegan tacos I made, I'm totally sold! I made these amazing tacos with sweet potatoes and Lightlife Original Tempeh. I didn't miss the meat at all!
🌳Tempeh can be used for a number of meals as a protein replacement, available for purchase at your local grocery store(I've found ours at Fred Meyer and @imperfectfoods ) typically for $3.49. Easy to prep, vegan certified, has a savory and slightly nutty flavor, non-GMO and 12g of protein.

$3 Brownie Recipe with Black Beans

Sharing is caring!

My family, including Mason are pretty good eaters, we will eat (almost) anything. But then there are some things Mason won’t eat, not even give it a chance and one of those things – Beans! He won’t even give beans a chance, not refried beans, lima beans, nada! And it’s one of those food items I wish he would eat, such good protein, and protein is one thing I can definitely tell when his diet is lacking.

This is when Black Bean Brownies come in. I love making these! They are VERY easy, not to mention cheap. Box of brownie mix as low as $1-1.50 and a can of black beans for less than a $1 win win!! To this day Mason still has no idea black beans is in the recipe. I’m warning you do not tell your family about the beans, the kids will gobble them up and asked for seconds. They do not taste like beans are in them at all, but the texture is more like a fudge brownie. All you need is TWO INGREDIENTS!!

$3 brownie recipe with black beans

Get your TWO INGREDIENTS out. Preheat the oven and spray your baking dish with Pam. Open your can of black beans, do NOT pour the liquid out. Pour the beans and liquid in a food processor or blender like I used and hit blend, less than 2 minutes later and your beans are done and ready.

Pour dry ingredients from brownie mix box into a bowl and then pour the beans mixture into the bowl. Mix dry and wet ingredients together with spoon until it’s blended, about 2 minutes.

Don’t forget to spray the bottom and sides of baking dish. Next pour the mixture into the dish and spread evenly. Place into preheated oven and cook according to package instructions. I usually cook mine additional 10 minutes longer than what the package says and they still come out like fudge brownies, but it all depends on how you like your brownies. Check with a toothpick. After they are done, let cool and enjoy! But remember don’t tell your children if they will be grossed out ;)

      Aren’t they?! I know, I’m so surprised how good they are and what an odd combination :)
