Black Bean Brownies. (are they as good as normal brownies?)

14 Nov

so everyone knows me as the girl who would go to any extreme to turn anything into healthy.

sometime i may mix the most gruesome things together and form something which i would love (although some of my friends refuse to try it i secretly think they want to) but this brownie recipe really scared me when i first read it.

black beans and chocolate?

brownies are my absolutely favorite sweet thing ever ever ever!

and my kit-kat brownie recipe is to die for, but i’m only allowed to have that on christmas and my birthday, i don’t even want to calculate the amount of calories each brownie contains.

but this, well it just doesn’t sound right. But, as this is supposed to be my second nature, or the my god-given gift? (mixing gruesome things together, that is) i decided to give it a go.


you can imagine the expression on my mum’s face when i told her.

i asked her to buy me  a can of black beans and didn’t tell her why, if i had before I’m pretty sure she would have never let a can of black beans to ever enter our house.


1/2 cup cocoa powder

2 eggs

1/2 can black beans

1tsp baking powder


1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup chocolate chip.

mix everything in the food processor and put in oven for around 20 minuets at 350 degrees F


so was it a huge fat disaster?

yes. i decided to be clever and didn’t add the sugar or the chocolate chips to make it even healthier. the chocolate smelt absolutely amazing and the problem was NOT (very surprisingly) with the black beans. although everyone else (who didn’t even try it) insisted that the problem must be using black beans, however i think with more sugar or even honey these brownies wouldn’t be half bad. just don’t make my mistake.
