Black beans replace the flour in this recipe for a lovely dense, dark chocolate brownie
Months ago I saw a recipe for black bean brownies and was intrigued about what they would be like so I finally gave them a go! Black beans are high in protein and fibre and very good for you, and you would never know once the brownies are cooked that they are in there! After speaking to my consultant, I decided to syn the black beans as if they were flour, as this could be classed as a tweak, so the syns in the recipe reflect this and do not count the beans as free.
Next time I do these I think I will try them with some orange extract and zest which I think will be gorgeous!
