Wanna hear a secret? I’ve never been a fan of black bean brownies.
I’ll put endless other weird ingredients into my sweets- tofu, spinach, and avocado to name a few- but black beans in brownies have never done it for me before. They just always tasted like, well, like they had black beans in them, and that is not a taste you want in a brownie.
Introducing the recipe that changed that.
These brownies are good. Not “good for black bean brownies”, not “good for healthy brownies”, just plain good. They’re super fudgy and rich, but also don’t have thirty thousand calories like a classic brownie recipe. Like, you could eat four of these for the calories of one “normal” brownie, but you’ll probably be satisfied with only one (or two if you’re really hungry).
And if you need anymore information to convince you that these are delicious, just know that my mom, an even greater hater of black bean brownies, ate half the batch without even suspecting there were beans hidden inside. And she said they were some of the best brownies she’d had! How’s that for a successful recipe?
Mmmmm…. I could use one right now!
