Healthy Chocolate Brownies (with hidden black beans)

Whenever I make these black bean brownies, my favourite thing to do is not tell the recipient of my weekend baking adventures that they’re made from beans, and then see if they can tell that they’re ‘healthy’ brownies. So far, no one has guessed and EVERYONE adores them. They’re simple, delicious and are sure to be one of your new favourites

Adaptions

If you’re gluten free you can use gluten free flour. The honey can be swapped for any other liquid sweetener like rice malt syrup or maple syrup

 

Meal Prep

The brownies freeze really well, so you can make them in bulk for a quick and easy snack another day
