Event Services, What's Cooking?! Black Bean Brownie Bites

Black Bean Brownie Bites

I can only guess what you’re thinking .. that sounds disgusting! But I promise you this is a thing. I first made these brownies years ago with teenagers who were very skeptical but actually liked them! Since then I’ve made a few tweaks over the years to suit our particular tastes, eliminate the processed sugar, and make it gluten-free. The key is to NOT TELL ANYONE THERE ARE BEANS in here and the other is to use enough cocoa powder to hide the taste of the black beans. My partner’s nephew said it tasted really rich, then when he was told there were beans in it he could instantly taste it and that was not necessarily a good thing. However, these brownies add fiber and protein, and they can be made either as cakey or fudgy brownies depending on your preference (he likes cakey and I like fudgy so I bake them both ways using the same batter). I hope you’ll be brave enough to trust and try, good luck!
