A few months ago I posted a black bean brownie recipe. My beautiful dog Ruben had just passed away, my heart was in pieces and I wanted to make something comforting, sweet and dark, like my boy.  So, I made black bean brownies and they were lovely.

These are Better!

Deliciously rich, gooey and full of chocolatey goodness, these vegan black bean brownies are simple to make and easier to devour.

I have been playing with the recipe trying to make it as brownie-like as possible. The trick is, you have to suck it up and use a goodly amount of sugar. If you want cake, use less. I don’t want cake. I have cake – the best classic chocolate cake recipe – butI want rich, dark, gooey, chocolate browniesthe kind that make your eyes roll back in your head a little. My eyes rolled.

So Ruben, my beautiful, dark, sweet, gooey, delicious spirit; these are your brownies and each time I eat them I will think of you and how lucky I was to have walked next to you for 15 years.

Deliciously rich, gooey and full of chocolatey goodness, these vegan black bean brownies are simple to make and easier to devour.

These easy black bean brownies are so easy to make. It’s all whipped up in the blender. Who doesn’t love that?

If you love brownies as much as I do try my Flourless Tahini Caramel Black Bean Brownies or my Fudge Vegan Brownies.

Enjoy.
