Black Bean Brownies

Hi all you bakers out there! πŸ™‚

Since I’ve gotten home from college, I have been so stoked to finally bake again!

I wanted to make something semi-healthy, something I’d not regret eating after.

For this reason, I chose to make black bean brownies. The recipe comes from Minimalist Baker. (link below)

While these brownies aren’t as fudgy or sugary-sweet as usual brownies, they nonetheless satisfy a craving for those who are looking for a brownie-like dessert but want a punch of protein and fiber!

Also, topping these brownies with walnuts and chocolate chips makes them 10x better πŸ˜€

–also note* I did not use flax eggs, I used real ones. I also used honey instead of sugar & canola oil instead of coconut oil.

Here’s the photographs & recipe!
