Happy Herbivore Black Bean Brownies

I had to try these though I had no idea what to expect. Wow! I'm a believer!
First, I love that these were made with all natural, wholesome ingredients: bananas, agave nectar, cocoa, vanilla extract, oats, and, yes, a can of black beans. Second, I was literally licking the bowl. They're very good. They don't taste like regular fudgy brownies; I thought they tasted something like a chocolate/banana bread. But for a reduced-fat treat (3 WeightWatchers PointsPlus values), I thought they were great. I splurged on one piece and spread a very thin layer of peanut butter on top: YUM!

You can find the recipe on the Happy Herbivore website.

  1. I remember these making the rounds and last I heard, there's a pumpkin bread made with white beans! Both sound intriguingly awesome.
