We have definitely tricked a few people with this recipe before because these brownies look, smell, and taste just like the ones your grandma use to make with butter and flour. Laura found the recipe on Instagram for the brownies and we are drawing a blank on where she found it otherwise we definitely give props to you. So if this looks like your recipe shoot us a message and we will give you shout out.
So we technically made up this dessert for our #weirdvegwednesday but there isn’t really any veggies in it. I’m going to modify and call it weird produce Wednesday because of the avocados in the frosting. If you try this recipe out on unknowing subjects we would love to hear what their response was when you told them what was actually in these. The pan I made was a double batch, so the ingredients listed below are for just a single batch. So don’t follow my directions below and put them in a 9″ x 13″ like my pic otherwise you will be a brownie flatbread. Ooh I might be on to something with that…
Black Bean Brownies
I was skeptical. I almost didn’t make them. How in the HECK could brownies made out of black beans be good?
Well…they were better than good. They were AMAZING. I loved them…I really don’t think I’ll ever go back to normal brownies!! I topped these with a little pb2 sauce but they really didn’t need it.
We took these over to my hubby’s brother’s house for dinner and I thought it’d be hilarious to play a trick on them and not tell them what they were made of. They know me so well though…before I could even dish them up they asked me what kind of vegetable was in them. Seriously…who do they think I am??! I told them there were no vegetables but they knew something was up. I didn’t care though because they LIKED them!!
