I'll admit it: I was skeptical, too. But does this brownie look like it's made with black beans? It sure doesn't taste like it.
While substituting black beans for flour is not a new discovery, I've just never been interested in doing so, enjoying the same boxed brownie mix for years.
As active, busy women and mothers, with the responsibility to feed ourselves and our tiny people, small substitutions can make a big nutritional difference.
Hence the black beans.

When I made these brownies for the first time, I was pleasantly shocked. They were delicious! These fudgy black bean brownies have a slightly different taste: slightly more cakelike, but definitely chocolaty, rich and fudgy.
My children were the best guinea pigs for testing out this recipe - they'd immediately tell me the truth. My children gobbled them up... and then asked for more.
And what are the health benefits? Without flour, these fudgy brownies are gluten-free. Both the black beans and the Greek yogurt provide needed protein, fiber, vitamins and complex carbohydrates. Cheers to that!
