I used to bake with red kidney beans, but then - why not black beans too? I came across a vegan bean brownie recipe that used red kidney beans and decided to create my own take on the subject.
While looking for that perfect structure of the brownie (moist, fudgy like), but also wanting to keep the recipe somehow healthy - meaning not using a ton of refined sugar or chocolate - I came up with the perfect recipe for fully plant based black bean brownie.
I'm already quite used to substituting eggs in recipes (on which you can find more detailed info HERE), but this time sugar wasn't a big challenge either - dates are usually the answer. An addition of banana makes the whole cake keep its moisture after baking. Also, my brownie version contains no fat whatsoever!
Hope you'll try it and experiment yourself with different toppings (think all kind of nuts and dry fruit like goji berries or even raisins). This black bean brownie will come together for you in no time, but it will disappear in no time too!
