Black bean brownies are healthy, moist, and so chocolaty! If you aren’t told that there are black beans in the brownies, you would never be able to tell.
OK. I admit when I saw Melissa D’Arabian whipping these up on her show on Food Network Saturday morning I was a little skeptical. I could not believe what I saw her put in a blender and turn into a platter of yummy sweetness…
Canned black beans!!
I love black beans…I mean I really love them. Not just because they are healthy but also because of their versatility. Just when I thought I had prepared black beans every possible way, Mrs. D’Arabian threw me a curve ball. 🙂
There was a week last summer when we had black beans in some form every night. Soup, “burgers”, dip, hummus…you name it, I made it. I was transitioning us into a meatless phase (long story for another time) so I wanted my family to see that we could have a filling and satisfying dinner without meat. I think I may have taken the bean thing a little too far…if you know what I mean. 😉
Anyhow, off topic….AGAIN! Back to the black bean brownies.
You will not believe how easy these are to make. I made them entirely in the blender. I did not tell anyone I was making them, because I wanted to see if they noticed at all. Guess what? They didn’t!
Give the black bean brownies recipe a go, and let me know what you think of them!
