Awesome Flourless Brownies (means Gluten Free!)

If you haven’t tried my Black Bean Brownies, I HIGHLY encourage you to.  What I like about them the most is that they are actually healthy for you.  I don’t know about you, but I (along with most of the population) don’t get enough fiber.  These beans will take care of that for you.

However, I did understand, when my daughter came to me the other day and said, “Mom, I just want real brownies, like before I couldn’t have gluten and you started making everything from beans.”

I understood.  And so I give you ……

I will warn you ahead of time that these are not the healthiest things on the planet.  Also, when you remove a huge component like flour from a baked good it intensifies the rest of the ingredients, like the chocolate.  So a HUGE glass of milk is required.


But they are ohhhhhhh so good!

I used an 8×8 pan and cut them into 12 squares, then I cut them again.  It is a dessert after all, not a meal, right?  Just add a little homemade vanilla ice cream on the side and it makes the perfect size dessert.


Disclosure:  These are the REAL DEAL.  So there will be no ‘benefits’ of eating beans or fiber or any schpeel like that.   They are fattening, but needed on an oh-so-often basis to keep your sanity.
