My search for the perfect black bean brownie recipe began long ago when I was in the mood for chocolate. Specifically, gooey, sweet, chocolatey brownies.
I had not indulged in a brownie for a long time since becoming vegan. Mainly because I had only come across recipes that were made with white flour and a lot of refined sugar.
Therefore, I needed to find a delicious, but healthy vegan brownie recipe.
Could it be done?
Having stumbled upon multiple black bean brownie recipes, I decided to give one a try. I had never tried black bean brownies, but they appeared to be much more nutritious than traditional brownies.
Challenges arose after my first attempt.
This batch of brownies was good, but they did not have that gooey, chocolatey-ness I was craving. So I continued my search.
I tried two more recipes. One of which utilized bananas.
This was a mistake.
Black bean brownies made with bananas do not taste like gooey, sweet, chocolatey goodness. They taste like bananas.
I then made it a goal to simply create my own, perfect recipe for black bean brownies. One that satisfied my standards for scrumptious brownies, as well as one my friends, who are not vegans, would approve of.
