Espresso Black Bean Brownies

February 22, 2021

If you’re anything like me, dessert is your favourite thing to create in the kitchen! I will admit, that can be a little dangerous at times…but it’s so fun finding a recipe and then creating your own healthy version of it! These brownies are just that!

When I think of a brownie, I think of a super soft, gooey, chocolatey piece of heaven. That’s exactly what these are! Except, you also get some hidden gems like added protein, fibre, and antioxidants! The best thing about these brownies is that they are gluten and dairy-free! They also have 1lb of black beans in them. Trust me, you can’t even taste them! Instead, they add this amazing fudge-like texture.  So if you like a dense, chocolaty brownie- you’ve got to try these!
