$1 Betty Crocker brownies mix
Whole can of black beans (drained and partially mashed)
2 eggs

Bake normally.  The partial mashing allows some 
chunks to remain that may seem like you added nuts.  Not bad recipe for $1 box mix, 49 cent can of black beans. Ziplock to keep moist. You could add some chocolate chips if you feel the need to turbocharge it...

As seen on Skinny Recipes:
1/2 cup olive oil

14 medium potatoes, cubed 
3 chicken breast, cubed 
2 1/2 cup shredded cheese

Spray 9×12″ baking dish with cooking spray.  In a large bowl combine oil, salt, pepper and ranch dressing mix. Add the potatoes to the oil mixture and toss well. Spoon potatoes into a large baking dish. Leave as much oil mixture behind as possible. Roast potatoes until crispy, about 1 hr. Stirring every 15 minutes. Cut raw chicken into bite size pieces. Add to oil mixture and toss well. In a separate bowl mix the cheese, bacon and onion.  When potatoes are crispy, remove from oven. Lower temperature to 400°F.  Top potatoes with raw chicken & cheese mixture. Bake for another 15-20. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Serve with sour cream or ranch dressing and enjoy.
