Vegan Black Bean Brownies

I know what you are thinking. Black beans? In brownies? Let me give you a reassuring and over the top YES!!! It is a lovely ingredient for vegan brownies and is quite popular for good reason.

They give the perfect consistency and provide the right amount of moisture. Not to mention, black beans are one of the healthiest beans there is! Not only are they are good source of fiber and protein, but they can also help reduce blood sugar spikes. And as a type 1 diabetic, I appreciate that!

I made these for my kiddos and didn’t tell them the main ingredient. And guess what? They LOVED them!

Can You Taste the Black Beans

You really can’t! I mean, maybe a tiny bit, but it is not like eating beans. It doesn’t taste like beans at all. If anything, it is more like a familiar taste but you can’t tell it is black beans.

The flavors that really come through are the chocolate, banana and vanilla. A hint of maple even.

Black beans are a delicious ingredient to use for vegan baking!

You will want to make sure these delicious vegan black bean brownies are stored in an airtight container snuggled in the fridge. It is always best to keep them cool.

If you want to keep them on the counter for a while that is fine too! But if there are leftovers, just make sure to pop them in the fridge so they last longer.
