The best black bean brownies I've ever had! I've tried several recipes with baking soda and it made the brownie very cake-like. My husband and I love brownies- ok, we love boxed brownies (brownie mixes): Ghiradelli and Betty Crocker top the list. Five stars for a healthier alternative. They can't compare to the boxed variety, but it's not fair to compare a healthier version to an unhealthy one. These black bean brownies don't have that dense-fudgy flavor, but then again they don't have a long list of artificial ingredients that you'd never find in your pantry either. To help mask the bean flavor, we added two tablespoons of creamy peanut butter and the 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the blender (to make sure we got a taste of real chocolate in every bite). We didn't add the instant coffee, because we didn't have it. The verdict: My three-year olds gobbled them up quickly. My husband knew something was amiss, but he said they were good. We'll definitely make them again as a healthier alternative to brownies. The next time, I'll add more peanut butter and some chopped walnuts. Thank you Elizabeth for a yummy recipe.
