I’ll be the first to admit that the first time I heard of Black Bean Brownies, my first thought was “Ewww, why would you do that to a perfectly good brownie?” I mean, black beans sound like something meant for soup or stuffed inside of a Chipotle burrito.
A couple of years ago, I decided to try a vegan diet for awhile and found myself limited on food options and recipes. My sweet tooth was calling out for something to satisfy it, and I stumbled across a recipe for Black Bean Brownies from Chocolate Covered Katie. After reading the comments and reviews, 99 percent of which were raving about them, I decided that the worst that could happen was that I would bake them and throw them out if they were not edible. I had all of the ingredients on hand, so I began mixing up the ingredients and popped the concoction in the oven.
