Expert Tips

  • Not sure about black bean brownies? Don’t worry, pureed black beans give these brownies loads of moisture, without a beanie flavor.
  • It will be easier to cut your bean brownies if you line the pan with foil, leaving an overhang that will help you lift them out of the pan.
  • Toffee chips give these brownies a nice crunch. They can be found in the bakery aisle of most grocery stores.
