I don’t know how I have gone so long not sharing this recipe with you all!
I actually thought I’d already put it on the website, especially considering how much of a staple it is in this house, but when hubby told me I needed to share this with you guys, I went to double-check and shock horror……I hadn’t written it up!
So here you go…..my Double Chocolate Black Bean Brownies. Now because I’ve been making these for so long with such success, the idea of adding a tin of beans to a brownie no longer weirds me out, but for those kinda new to the wholefood baking scene, I promise you, cross my heart, that you will be pleasantly surprised with the result.
The beans add substance and texture, but DO NOT taste of beans!
Because the beans are pre-cooked and you’re not using eggs, you don’t need to worry about the consistency being fudgy and appearing undercooked. It’s not. It’s meant to be that way, eat and enjoy!
I like to serve these warm out of the oven so that the chocolate chips are a little melty on top, but if you’re serving it later, 20 seconds in the microwave will be sufficient. Of course they’re fabulous served cold too, and actually travel really well. The perfect road trip snack!
