Jam Filled Butter Cookies
I don't understand what went wrong. I meticulously weighed all my ingredients and noted that the dough seemed really wet so I chilled it for at least one hour. I was able to scoop it out but it was terribly sticky when I tried to make an indent. This wasn't going to work unless I added more flour so I did that. I had to increase the flour from 220g to 300g before it finally could be rolled into proper balls. Once baked it didn't taste good nor had a good texture at all. I am envious of all of you who had good results. I noticed a few other people had the same problem as I did - maybe it's the kind of butter we used that made the dough so wet... ? Who knows.. :(

MMMMM... Brownies
I halved the recipe and made this into six muffin brownies. Baked at 170 for exactly 13 minutes, these turned out soft, chewy and quite delicious. While these are good (5 stars for ease of making. I only dirtied one pot) I'm looking for something richer and more chocolatey and fragrant. Something with a darker taste. If I do make these again I will swap out some of the flour for cocoa powder.

Black Bean Brownies
To make it lower fat I followed advice from previous reviewer and added 1/3 cup of applesauce in place of oil. I'd imagine adding the same amount of banana puree would work too. Sugar I replaced with 1/3 cup agave nectar which gave the perfect level of sweetness for me. I wanted it to be very chocolatey so I increased cocoa powder to 1/3 cup. Next time I'll increase even more to 1/2 cup and reduce the chocolate chips to 1/4 cup (to reduce fat). I also sprinked 1/4 cup of chopped pecans before baking. This was delicious! I ate 1/4 of the cake right out of the oven, yum! This is supposed to be better the next day?! I can't wait to eat it again tomorrow. Will definitely make again! Thanks for the recipe!
