Simple Black Bean Brownies –

You can’t have too much of a good thing, right? Especially when you are talking about warm, made from scratch brownies.
 
These brownies are dark, complex and cakey. The fact that they contain no flour, lots of protein from black beans, antioxidants from dark chocolate, and only a little bit of sugar pretty makes these a health food. Right? That’s my story and I am sticking to it!
 
 
They also contain two super special ingredients that give these a complex and amazing flavor you can’t find anywhere else! Don’t be afraid of the coffee – you absolutely can’t taste it (I fed these to my mom, who swears she can taste even the hint of coffee and she had no clue), but it adds some richness to the brownie, and balsamic vinegar. No one will guess they are made with black beans. No one.
 
Apparently I have a thing for sneaky brownies, because I also have this awesome black bean brownie recipe that is equally good.

Be brave and try them, you wont be disappointed! Just don’t eat the whole pan by yourself, ok?
