Our favorite Black Bean Brownies

So good, no one believes they're made with beans

Flourless, Grain-free and Chocolatey!

These are one of my boys’ favorite brownies… and they know they are made with beans!  You would think that might deter teen and almost-teen boys from liking them but all they care about is that they are moist, rich and chocolatey.

This recipe is from Gluten Free on a Shoestring. They are super quick and easy to make. By now you know they are made with black beans, but the rest is similar to a classic brownie recipe: eggs, vanilla, neutral oil (I used grapeseed), 2 tbsp of coffee (yes! I used decaf though), cocoa powder, baking soda, brown sugar and chocolate chips.

I followed the recipe exactly and we couldn’t taste the coffee or the black beans (trust me, my kids would tell me). As an aside, I have seen several black bean brownie recipes call for coffee so I believe it must help mask any bean flavor. Whatever the chemistry behind it, these brownies are some of the best we’ve made!

If you haven’t tried black bean brownies, these are worth a try.  Still a decadent brownie, but a tiny bit healthier!
