Fudgy Chewy Black Bean Brownies (Flourless, Gluten Free)

Fudgy Chewy Black Bean Brownies (Flourless, Gluten Free)

Fudgy brownies made out of black beans in the blender… with an emphasis on the fudgy part. Oh my gosh. These are so good – and they are flourless and gluten free.

If only all things that looked this delicious could be secretly healthy. Well, healthier.

I have never tried black bean brownies before, and I have to be honest – I was pretty skeptical. But oh my gosh these are so good!! I think one of the most important things about these brownies is to make sure you have a high powered blender. I use a Vitamix blender, but any high powered blender should work fine.

A high powered blender is important because you want to make sure to blend ALL the black bean bits up so your guests or kids don’t even know what is coming for them.

I am not advocating for going around tricking people – but sometimes you jsust have to do what you have to do to get your kids to eat certain things.

As for parties – when I go to cookouts or other gatherings, I always make sure to bring food that I will want to eat. AKA healthier food. This makes sure you will have an option that will feel like splurge, but not totally break your diet. Don’t bring something super fatty that will leave with nothing semi-healthy to eat – it is all about planning right, friends!

Now go make these brownies for a semi guilt-free treat and enjoy!
