This recipe for black bean brownies is so rich in deep dark chocolate you can hardly believe it is healthy.
I used black beans instead of flour which make it gluten free and high in protein. The black beans and the cacao are high in fiber to prevent any spike in your blood sugar. The protein and high fiber content in beans work together to help balance blood sugar and prevent spikes and dips in energy. The fiber also promotes digestive health, encourages bowel regularity, and helps prevent constipation and weight gain. Thanks to the protein in beans, you get a gradual source of lasting energy. The raw cacao powder is very filling and high in antioxidants, magnesium and even has 3 grams of protein per serving. Serve them to your friends, family and children but don’t tell them they are healthy.
