You put WHAT in these brownies?

Yesterday I was reading about "Power Foods" in my February issue of Better Homes & Gardens.  This was a list of foods that are good for the heart.  One of the foods on the list -
It said you can put them in BROWNIES in place of eggs and oil.  I knew you could replace these things with applesauce, but BLACK BEANS?  Who comes up with this stuff? 
Well, we had to try it.  And you know what?  Sprinkled with a little powdered sugar, they are NOT that bad! 
Yes, WalMart's Great Value brand.  I know.  But they were cheap and I didn't want to be spending much if I was going to have to throw these things away!

Drain and rinse the beans,

then puree with 1/4 cup water.

Pour in the brownie mix.

Stir in water.

Pour brownie batter in pan and bake as directed.
Allow to cool, then dust with powdered sugar and enjoy.

The texture is a bit different, but they are still sweet and chocolatey.
