Black beans are awesome. They help reduce your blood cholesterol, maintain normal blood sugars, and prevent constipation. One cup of beans is 227 calories, 15g of protein, 41g carbs, and 15g of fiber. NOTE: There is no signifigant difference in nutritional value between canned or dry beans. However, the sodium content is higher in the canned beans due to salt added during cooking and processing.
I got this recipe here. Check the blog out while you are there. I made a couple substitutions. I used half sugar/half honey and used butter instead of the vegetable oil. If you are in the mood to experiment... try adding a banana or peanut butter. I used a blender, it was quick and easy.

Would love to hear your feedback. My kids love them, they have no idea I used black beans. Enjoy!
