you may not think that black bean brownies are particularly fashionable, but i will vehemently disagree. it’s often trendy to be vegetarian/vegan (mostly as represented by celebrity culture). i’ve been both in my life, and i simply could not stick to it. serious props to all of my life-long vegetarian and vegan friends. i still don’t eat a ton of red meat and other carnivore heavy foods, but i do enjoy myself a good burger every now and again. but, i digress…
brownies are supposed to be delicious and guilty delectable treats. right? right? these brownies really are an amazing invention. i’m always on the lookout for ways to enjoy sweet treats without all of the added bad stuff (butter, loads of refined sugar, calories, etc.). these brownies do just that! the black beans replace the flour, so friends with gluten allergies can still enjoy these babies! and with only eggs, the animal products are limited.
