Black Bean Brownies

TITK: Black Bean Brownies

It had been awhile since I’d made my Black Bean Brownies, so I decided it was time to pull out the recipe last week. These are a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth without being too unhealthy. Plus, the beans are great incentive to not eat the whole pan in one sitting 😉 Actually, they are more filling than normal brownies, so I tend to not want as many anyway.

You can’t taste the beans, although the texture is a little bean-like. Most people who have tasted these didn’t even know there were beans in them until I told them. However, because of the texture, if you don’t tell them, they might think you did something wrong (yes, this warning is from experience!)
