Teeeeeeechnically, the title of this post is a little misleading. 

Really, it should have two more words in there that I chose to leave out because I didn’t want you to write this recipe off:)

Black Bean Brownies

Despite those two little words being the main ingredients of this recipe, believe me that you’re going to be blown away by these brownies!

The flavor is full of dark chocolate goodness…

The texture is rich and gooey…

The only difference is that they’re full of wonderful black bean protein!

Don’t roll your eyes! 

I know that I’ve given black bean brownies a try before and that they failed miserably. 

They were so bad that I threw them in the trashcan:P

But THESE black bean brownies are DELICIOUS!

I haven’t tried it yet, but I think that if I were to serve these as regular brownies, people wouldn’t be able to tell that anything was different about them! 

They’re just that good.

Especially when served warm with ice cream!

Verdict: Mr. Torres and I are suckers for anything that combines chocolate with peanut butter! We love these brownies for multiple reasons…

1. They’re delicious.

2. Since they’re full of protein, a small serving makes you feel way full so we end up needing less dessert to feel satisfied.

3. They taste great with ice cream.

They do take a bit more effort to make than just throwing together a brownie mix, but I think they’re worth it.

      Agreed! Pb, chocolate are good enough that even beans can’t mess up the deliciousness:)

    They look good. I guess even black beans taste good mixed with chocolate and peanut butter. I’m anxious to try these as I had a similar experience with simple black beans brownies.

      Thanks, Karen! You really should give them a try! The first time I made them, I used extra peanut butter and mixed chocolate chips into the brownie mixture b/c I wasn’t sure how it would taste. Then the second time, I cut back a little bit since I knew what to expect:)
