You read the title correctly black bean brownies; and yes, they are made with the black beans in a can that you usually eat with your Mexican food. Sounds really gross and weird, huh? Well, they are great! Who knew? I certainly would have never imagined that I would eat them, but I did and they are good. I think they would be great topped with a big ol' scoop of ice cream. The way I figure, all the fiber and protein in the brownie would cancel out the fat in the ice cream. Right?!
I found the recipe over on skinnytaste.com The brownies only have two ingredients - black beans and brownie mix. I had them both in the pantry, so I gave it a shot. Talk about easy! Go ahead and give them a try - I promise you will never know that they are made with black beans.
