I'm In Love with these Brownies.
Four batches in three days in love.
I've got it bad.
I didn't invent black bean brownies, but I did modify the recipe to make it gluten free, dairy free and sugar-free. So these are Candida-diet friendly. Oh yeah!
I generally don't eat legumes. But small portions are allowed on the Candida diet (and most low carbohydrate diets) because they are so low in net carbohydrates and have no sugar. Don't eat the whole pan but a couple of servings can help to keep you satisfied and ready to keep taking on that sugar beast trying to get back into your life.
I used Xylitol for a bit of sweetness. If you aren't on the Candida diet you could probably substitute maple syrup or agave. Or increase the amount of Xylitol if you want it a bit sweeter. I'm trying to restrict my sugar and sugar alcohols as much as possible so I keep them to a minimum.
My mind is still blown that such a simple recipe made out of a a can of beans can taste this good. They really are amazing. And I've tried lots of weird and wonderful combinations of foods in my quest for clean, low-carb fare. So I'm not that easily impressed. But these impressed me.
Give them a try. Even my kids liked them.
