The secret ingredient is black beans, and I’m sure you’re thinking… what? But trust me, you don’t taste it! My husband even loves them, and can’t get over how good they are (and trust me if he didn’t like it he would tell me). They really feel like you’re eating something loaded with butter, yet it only uses 1/2 teaspoon of oil.  The last version I added some walnuts which increased the points to 5 each, but I gave you the basic recipe without.

  1. Has anyone tried making these in a muffin tin? If so, what temp and for how long?

  2. With these work if I replace the sugar with monk fruit sugar?

  3. 114oz black beans? That’s over 3kg!! What is the correct amount please?

  4. Very good! Moist!
    I used more sugar and iced it.
    Appreciate that I could make it with items I already had in pantry.
    I used apple cider vinegar instead of balsamic.

  5. I was a little skeptical but these are amazing! I didn’t have enough chocolate chips so just sprinkled what I had on top.
    Next time I may try to use less sugar.

  6. Made these for the first time tonight and have to say, they were REALLY good (and that’s coming from someone who has a voracious sweet tooth).

    I didn’t add the choco chips because I didn’t have any. They are more like moist cake than brownies but I love them. Thanks Skinnytaste!

  7. Has anyone tried using coconut sugar instead of the white sugar? Or could you use maple syrup?

  8. How to make this recipe without using the eggs and almond milk /dairy . Cuz the child is allergic to eggs and dairy ..all the other ingredients are fine except these two.. is it possible to make without them ? And might not be adding coffee since it’s for a child ..

  9. I feel like this is a dumb question… but for the fresh ground coffee does that mean grind up the beans and use that, or make a pot of coffee (with freshly ground beans) and use the prepared coffee?

  10. These are so delicious! I used dark kidney beans and added chopped walnuts.
