If you have been following my blog, then you know I love brownies and sweets. Sometimes I make them oozy, gooey, and “Paula Deen” style and sometimes I make them really lightened up. Both are important to have in your diet, mainly so you keep a healthy relationship with food. Honestly, how long does one last on only sticking to a fat-free treat…Not long!
But that is for another topic as this recipe YOU CAN FEEL GREAT ABOUT ENJOYING! (I have to say though, that the pictures do not do justice and I took these pictures when I pulled the brownies out of the fridge.)
Time to eat good, feel good, and be good to yourself.
Also, if you have been reading my blog then you know I experiment with everything! I have made brownies and fudge before many times using black beans.
Any how, I have yet another amazing version for you so let’s get to it. I’ve experimented with these kinds of recipes a lot . I’ve found that the small amount of real butter is truly essential for flavor and texture. The coffee also swipes out any bean taste as well. Nothing wrong with that when you look at what is in a typical brownie at your local bakery; sticks of butter, oil, and so much added sugar. No thanks!
NOTE: THEY ARE BEST if you chill overnight in the fridge and let the chocolate flavor intensify!
I sometimes make them in squares, OR like seen in the pictures, I use a muffin tin. This way they are portable and portioned out as well. Great for on-the-go! I put some in the freezer and they take 15-30 seconds in the microwave to make a super snack. My favorite thing though is all the toppings. I made some with sliced up banana, some with chocolate chips, some with peanut butter chips, and some with cocoa nibs. You could also use nuts or anything really.
Keep an open mind as I always say, give them a go! Enjoy~
