Black Bean Brownies
These black bean brownies are rich and fudgy and made with no flour (gluten free). They are packed with chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and walnuts.
I LOVE brownies but I am not too sure I can say the same about “black bean brownies.”
You see…I have NEVER gagged or spit out a brownie until I had the misfortune of trying black bean brownies for the first time! EEKS!!!!
What really SURPRISES me is how popular black bean recipes are these days!
In my opinion, they are just AS BAD AS those 5 minute mug cakes.
Both those things taste GOD AWFUL yet somehow, they are promoted as the best things out there!
I am not sure who first developed this recipe but OH! How I would love to give them a piece of my mind!
Exactly what the heck were they thinking when they came up with this RIDICULOUS flavor combination???
It’s the WORST thing I have ever tasted.
When these black bean brownies first came out of the oven, they deceived me coz they looked perfect…fudgy and chocolatey.
But upon taking my first bite, I was shocked by the awful texture and flavor that filled my mouth.
I just couldn’t bring myself to swallow that bite and NO! I am NOT even exaggerating…It was that bad! I had to spit it out.
I thought maybe I didn’t follow the recipe properly…
So, I went back and made those brownies again… STILL BAD!
Then, I tried 4 other popular recipes… STILL FREAKIN BAD!
Next, I made my own version by modifying a bunch of recipes…. BETTER but still didn’t work for me!
After God knows how many hours, I was FRUSTRATED…I was TIRED… and I was OUT of black beans (lol!).
Then, I realized something: Maybe there is nothing wrong with those recipes and the problem is with ME! Maybe I just don’t enjoy the black bean texture or flavor in brownies…SIMPLE as that!
By the way, among all the recipes I tried, I thought my version was slightly was better than the rest.
So, if you are a fan of black bean brownies, give these a shot and who knows? You may end up liking these…
And you are done!
Well, that’s all for today.
If you liked this post, you may like some of these other brownie recipes too…
Until next time, tata my lovelies!
