This is one of those “don’t tell them what’s in this” recipes. People will never believe these fudgy brownie cakes are actually black bean brownies, full of healthy black bean fiber and no flour at all. They are much lower in fat and calories than typical flourless chocolate cake recipes, and provide multiple health benefits due to the beans, olive oil, and cocoa powder. They are also suitable for diabetics (in moderation), because of the low glycemic index of the agave syrup and the protein from the beans and nuts.
The renovation: This inspired recipe was provided by a reader to Clean Eating magazine. I have modified it somewhat. I am still working on a vegan version, as a straight substitution of an egg replacer is not working so far.
