Anyone try to make them? Are they good?


*Update* Success! I made them. Its a bit more like fudge than a brownie. There is a subtle bean taste that I can detect. I gave it to them for their after-school snack and they both ate it and both asked for more :)   Now, I can work some beans into his diet. Next I will try blending in some spinach for extra nutrition for him.

I don't see the point, I have brownies so rarely that I'll just eat the regular kind

Never tried them. I love regular brownies though. We've mixed spinach in. It changes the texture, but kids don't even know there's spinach in there!

Quoting Danesmommy1: That sounds vile.

Trying to sneak in healthier foods to my extremely picky eaters diet.  This didn't seem like a bad idea. Im going to try it today. They LOOK like regular brownies in the picture lol.

That strange looking sister of Hillary Duff , Hayley I think, has her own cooking show and she made a black bean chocolate cake and everyone talked about how fantastically delicious it was.    I think I may try making it.

I'd feel so betrayed if I bit into a brownie only to taste black beans.

Im trying to sneak in healthy options to my son's diet.  He will not eat a bean if his life depended on it. So, why not hide it by covering it in chocolate? lol.
