Let’s get the elephant out of the room and acknowledge these two facts up front:
- These brownies have black beans in them.
- You make them in a blender.
Seriously? I was so intrigued by this recipe that I had to give it a try… and these black bean brownies ended up to be even better than I could have imagined!
We had friends come over right after I made them, so I gave them the brownies without mentioning the fact that they were made out of beans (and no butter!). And no one could tell any difference from “normal” brownies! Success.
They’re very rich, with a cake-like consistency (and no trace of bean flavor). Of course, I also added more melted chocolate chips on top as a frosting, because Siri did. Why not?
