Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
so rich and an amazing moist but also cake-like texture. I used cacao powder and stevia. literally tasted like box mix, can't get enough of these were so quick and easy to make!

Applesauce unsweeten can replace the oil not the egg. Oil makes it moist so I substituted with applesauce which does the same thing. Enjoy!
My husband liked these, but said he thought they would be better made with pinto beans. He could taste the black beans! Myself, I prefer fudge brownies. I might make them again, using pinto beans. I thought this was a great recipe for those who are gluten intolerant.
Very tasty, rich and chocolatey. Taste is more like a flourless cake, but still great. No bean taste at all!!
Does anyone know if you could use applesauce instead of the eggs?
Previous reviewer mimirita hit the issue on the head for me, the grittiness of the cocoa is off-putting. They smell like brownies and have some brownie taste to them but they DO have a lot of cocoa, sugar and chocolate chips in them. They are dense, and a small piece goes a long way. Suggest an ice cream or at the least a glass of milk with them. I've had other gluten-free desserts I enjoyed much more than this one. I'm trying to limit my sugar intake so I think this was a poor choice for that aspect.
I LOVE these brownies! I got worried because I read the reviews after I made them, but they are amazing! They taste exactly like Little Debbie brownies! So rich and chocolatey! The texture is a little less dense than a little Debbie brownie, but very similar. I love the texture for a brownie. It's not dry at all. Very moist and fluffy. The best way I can describe the texture is like a cross between a moist cake and a fudge brownie, but better. I'm so happy with how they turned out and I know my husband and children will love these!!!! Not to mention they are so much more healthier than traditional brownies! Favorite brownie recipe! Will make again!
Delicious, deep chocolate taste...but, to me, it's cake not brownies. You would never, ever know that there are black beans in the mix. I will definitely make these again!2nd post: I have made these brownies over 6 times now. I cut them into 2-bite sized portions and store them in the refrigerator. They are delicious cold ... with a small scoop of ice cream for a special dessert, but mainly just plain as a snack with iced coffee or milk!!!!
I cannot get past the fine grit of the cocoa in the finished product. In many cake recipes with cocoa, the cocoa is dissolved in boiling water. Now I know why. I used a premium cocoa, Bensdorf from King Arthur. It has preformed well in many recipes. Has any one else had the cocoa leave a fine gritty feeling on their tongue? I did process the heck out of it in the food processor.
