Black Bean Brownie Recipe

Honestly, if you didn’t know there were high-protein, high-fibre and entirely healthy black beans in this recipe, you’d never guess! We love a healthy dessert in our house, especially if it involves chocolate, and this recipe is satisfyingly chocolatey. If you can’t get your hands on black beans, try cannellini or butter beans instead, as they work just as well. Prep this at the weekend, and you’ll have something delicious, filling and sweet (without being sugary) on-hand all week. You could definitely eat this for breakfast too…
