Black Bean Brownies

Black Bean Brownies

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   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.

  1. I've made and posted these before, too, (a good year or two ago). They are pretty good. Yours look super fudgy.
    (I made Rocco's ccc's with black beans once and they were really gross.)

  2. Visiting from Alabama Bloggers . . . You sure are a brave soul for trying that recipe. I love brownies but I dont think I could make black bean brownies!

    1. Black bean brownies rock! I made them for my grandkids. After the pan was gone, I told them they were black bean brownies. They had a hard time believing me.
