Smooth, soft and creamy texture and full of fiber and protein. These surprising gluten-free brownies with black beans. With those delicious chocolate flavor that comes with a brownie!
This recipe comes from the Dutch cookbook Bonen! from Joke Boon and I've adapted it slightly. As I read through this book this recipe for brownies with black beans caught my eyes. And since I'm a chocolate lover par excellence, this seemed like an appropriate recipe to try.
Black beans in my brownie??
At the time I had to pulp the black beans and had to mingle with the delicious chocolate, my confidence in a well ending dropped to almost zero. What a surprise the brownies turned out to be. Creamy, delicious with great chocolate flavor. Very good. Do you taste the beans, you might ask? Yes, I've let it taste by a lot of friends, who were unknown test objects. Everyone sensed something, but the taste was delicious and they were very surprised when told. And it is a gluten-free version, so that's a great plus. Conclusion: This recipe I will make more often!
