Black Bean “Flourless” Brownies Recipe

We all have a brownie recipe that we crave or love making for someone else. For me, a perfect brownie must be high in chocolate flavor, deliver on the fudgy factor and not take too long to prepare. Our Culinary Center team came up with a Black Bean “Flourless” Brownie recipe that won me over on all of these criteria. Yes, you read it right: black bean and flourless… and if I might add, prepared in a blender!

Rich and moist, these brownies provide some extra protein and fiber from the beans. You will not taste them at all. The little bit of instant coffee adds a little more roasted flavor to the cocoa and brownie itself.

If you like to surprise people or have them guess what the mystery ingredient is, I encourage you give this recipe a shot. They will be asking for more!
