Who doesn't love fudgy brownies!
While all of us love the taste of sweetness in the brownies, we couldn’t make them as sweet as we buy them from stores outside.
So we brought you a simple, rich and tasty way to experiment your skills in making sweet black bean brownies with the ingredients, tips and tricks.
These Fudgy Black Bean Brownies are a decadent vegan dessert (and no one will ever guess that they’re packed with fiber-filled black beans!)
That catch…black beans! A cup of black beans has about half the calories that a cup of all-purpose flour has, it has got 20% of your daily iron, and has slightly higher protein content (15g).
Why make unhealthy brownies if you could make healthy ones that are delicious, nutritious, and we know for a fact that you will fall in love with?!
Many of us have been thinking that brownies are calorie-dense but now we're about to change your mind about that!
