I have a confession to make...
A friend of mine once told me she had the most amazing recipe for black bean brownies and I totally disregarded her! It wasn't personal... and it was probably a bit subconscious come to think of it. It's just that- well, black bean brownies have never impressed me. And I've had my fair share of them.
Fastforward to five months later when she made a batch for a holiday party.
These literally are THE BEST HEALTHY GRAIN FREE BROWNIES EVER.
So the moral of the story is: do not judge or dismiss said brownies simply because they contain black beans, and do not compare them to other black bean brownies because there truly is no comparison.
These brownies are so super fudgy that they really should be called "Super Fudge Brownies" but because it's not my recipe, we'll stick to the original title.
2 cups cooked black beans (or 1 can, no salt added)
3 lightly beaten eggs
1/3 cup liquid or melted coconut oil
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon sea salt or Himalayan salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup honey or 1/2 cup lakanto or 10 medjool dates (soaked to soften)
1/2 cup chopped up bittersweet chocolate or semi-sweet chips
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts (optional)
