    I do like them. But mostly I eat them every day since they are the only carb I have on hand. I don't eat any baked goods that are not homemade anymore (with the exception of whole wheat tortillas--I'm still using store bought for them since I need them to not fall apart). The brownies don't take long to make, and they have a high ratio of fibre to sugar and also a high ratio of protein to sugar--both things I am looking for in my diet. So they are a good fit for me. I pretty much always eat them spread with a nut butter (cashew if I have it, peanut otherwise), which ups the flavour and also the fat content. So a small quantity fills me up.

    The recipe I use is:

    1 can (540 mL) black beans, drained and rinsed
    100 grams quick cook oats
    50 grams cocoa powder
    1 cup high protein Silk (unsweetened, vanilla-flavoured, almond & cashew "milk", fortified with pea protein)
    2 bananas

    This nets me 16 brownies (although, as you have seen, I usually eat two at a time).

    Do you make any additions to your black bean brownies? I tasted the batter and found it bland. So, I added more cocoa, some PB Fit (powered fat free peanut butter), some raspberry powder, salt, some isomaltulose (long acting sweetening carb), and some olive oil….we shall see how they turn out!🤞🏼😎

    The black bean brownies must be really good since you eat them daily. I should try making a batch. I eat a two-pack of Nature’s Bakery brownies every day after my workout. I’m hooked on them. They have very few ingredients and soft/chewy which is my fav

    June 5 menu:

    10 AM: hard boiled egg; 2 black bean brownies with cashew nut butter; 1 slice aged Gouda; tuna salad

    1 PM: whole wheat chocolate banana pancake with cranberries, raspberries, blueberries, no-fat Greek yogourt, almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and coconut

    4 PM: 2 black bean brownies with cashew nut butter; wedge of Red Devil; 1 slice black pepper cheddar; 1 slice aged Gouda; tuna salad

    9 PM: celery cheese bake; spicy roasted potatoes with sriracha mayo; caramelized onions; shiitake mushrooms

    I'd intended to eat salad for dinner, not an odd assortment of random leftovers (with even more cheese). But I lost track of the time. Eating a massive salad at ten o'clock at night would not fit with my whole plan to get to bed at a reasonable hour. So the odd assortment of leftovers won out.

    May 26 menu:

    9 AM: whole wheat chocolate* banana pancake with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, no-fat Greek yogourt, almonds, and coconut

    2 PM: salad (mixed greens, tomato, avocado, hard-boiled egg, almonds, dried apricots, sunflower seeds, no-fat Greek yogourt, hemp hearts, nutritional yeast); 2 black bean brownies with cashew nut butter; wedge of Red Devil

    6 PM: zucchini and corn enchiladas

    * used a darker chili chocolate bar today--70% cacao vs. 47% cacao in Monday's pancake--this was fancy organic, fair trade, probably ridiculously expensive (I'm pretty sure it was a gift) chocolate with cinnamon, orange oil, orange peel, vanilla bean, and Ancho, Guajillo, and Cayenne chilis. Definitely superior to Monday's Lindt chili chocolate and it looks like it was purchased in Canada (has bilingual packaging, including a Canadian Nutrition Facts label). So there may be hope I can find another bar once this one is used up.
