Black Bean Brownies

I finally did it. I made black bean brownies.

I am going to be totally honest with you. They don't really tasted like normal brownies. The texture is very different and tastes like ... well, chocolate beans.

Did I still eat it? Heck yes. Were they still good? Definitely.


More honesty: My husband didn't like them. Oh well. More for me. I topped mine with coconut milk yogurt and blueberries. It reminds me of cream-cheese frosting. Mmmmmm cream cheese frosting.

I used Chocolate Covered Katie's recipe. Have you been to her blog? It's amazing. I'm curious if anyone has another CCK recipe that they would recommend?

Check out the recipe here.

  1. I haven't had black bean brownies in over a year, but I really like the recipe I have on my blog for them. :) Yours look good with the makeshift frosting!

    1. I am going to try your recipe then next! I wish I had known about yours all along, I might have tried it first.

  2. Shoot! Really? I just recently finally tried the chickpea blondie version and while the whole wheat flour and almond butter...and beans, I guess...give it a heartier texture, they definitely were still gooey, and didn't taste like beans (hummus!!) at all to me!
    Maybe black beans have a stronger taste?

    1. Amy! Your comment on my ginger bread jello shots made me laugh out loud :) I've been really wanting to try this recipe for chickpea "cookie dough". Maybe I will try the blondies too.

      As for the bean taste ... I think it's a texture thing.

  3. I've had black bean brownies on my try list for a while now...I figured it might be a way to sneak some fiber into my family's diet.

    1. I think it's worth giving it a try ... maybe don't tell them until after they try one ;)

  4. I recommend this one. http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2011/09/06/the-ultimate-chocolate-fudge-pie/

    I didn't care at all for her chocolate chip cookie dough cereal. The taste was fine, but the texture was really gross to me.
