Beans…Love them. But in dessert? I was definitely a skeptic, but after repeatedly being asked I finally broke down and played around with some brownie recipes. There was some failure in the beginning to produce a good texture with an appropriate balance between bean and other ingredients. Eventually though I made not only a passable brownie, but a brownie that tastes great and has the texture of fudge!!
Not only is it super popular but it has loads of benefits (health and diet) as well. Black beans full of protein and fiber along with coconut oil can be a quick source of energy and a great pick me up. Pairing this with the fact that these brownies are both gluten free and vegan make this one of my healthiest and most diet friendly treats yet.
