Yep, I did it. I jumped on the black bean brownie-bandwagon.
I’ve been scouring the internet for literally years (I swear, I do have a life…) for a good, egg-free black bean brownie recipe, and never found one that I truly liked enough until I found Gina’s.
Three ingredients, no fuss, and an incredible, fudgey concoction as a result. Sounds good to me!
Please head on over to Skinnytaste (click for link) to check out this incredible recipe. I didn’t change it at all, and I can’t claim it as my own (though I do wish I had had the genius to make it up!).
To those who suffer from allergies, this recipe is great because it is already egg and nut free, and many boxed brownie mixes don’t even contain dairy, so you’re safe there, too. Just be sure to look for an appropriate one if that is a concern of yours. 🙂
As far as taste goes, you honestly cannot tell there are beans in these. I won’t lie to you – you can sort of tell that there’s something different about them, but it is so hard to place, and definitely miniscule. I tried them critically, trying to find a fault, so maybe people who have no idea what the ingredients are wouldn’t know any different! (And I say “fault” lightly!)
I topped this batch with some mini chocolate chips, but I’m positive they would be just as delicious without. I hope you give them a try today and start your weekend off right! 🙂
