Have you heard of black bean vegan brownies? I have got to be honest with you, I have an absolute sweet tooth, and my weakness is delicious chocolate. I love anything with chocolate in it, well almost anyway. Black bean vegan brownies were not on the top of my list. But, I’m also very curious. What do they taste like? Turns out very deliciously.
Now I could eat dessert all day long, but I recognize that it wouldn’t be very healthy in the long run. I never count calories and don’t restrictively, but I have important people in my life who does. For different reasons. Therefore I’m thinking, this is a win win, win for my health and theirs too. The solution, vegan brownies. I made them coconut milk and coffee frosting. They do not taste like black beans, and they were even child approved. Try them and let me know what you think! Here’s how you make them.
I get my beans from Gram, and therefore they do not come in a can. I soak them overnight and cook them for about 20 minutes. If you use canned ones, make you rinse them very well before using them.
