A long time ago on my Instagram I uploaded in my stories the step-by-step instructions for this delicious recipe of Black beans brownie. On that account, I usually show things that I make on a daily basis in terms of recipes.
On that occasion I used black beans as my protagonist, a wonderful and versatile legume with a high magnesium content and a good source of potassium and iron.
As you can see, black beans are good not only for stews or savory preparations, but also for sweet preparations.
This time I wanted to make these brownies, which are very popular among vegetarians and vegans, also for those who have gluten problems.
In this blog I love having all kinds of recipes, and I don’t like to be stuck with just one style. For quite some time already I was pending to share this recipe, and the truth is that when you get the final result and then you taste it in your mouth, you will likely not notice that this recipe was made using black beans.
I invite you to innovate from traditional recipes and give this brownie a chance, which will be an excellent and nutritious snack.Print
