These easy and healthy brownies are to die for! Yes, they are healthy brownies that do not taste healthy! They take literally 22 minutes to make including the 18 minutes of cooking time. These gluten free brownies are made with black beans and oats so they are packed with nutrients.
I had to figure out something quick today for dessert and since John has started his “diet” again it had to be good. So I figured that I would make brownies and lace them with healthy ingredients such as honey, black beans and oats.
Yes, I know what you will ask… Why should I eat these easy healthy brownies when I can have the real deal? Well… These are the real deal! They taste just like the ones that are loaded in sugar and carbohydrates… only these are actually good for you!
To do the real taste test, we did not say anything to the kids. I just left them on the counter and just told them that we had brownies for dessert… The kids, and John, took the bait and devoured them! They are sweet, scrumptious and full of chocolate in every bite! Do I dare to tell them that there are black beans in them? No way! I will let them have a week’s worth of fiber first and then I might!
