Delicious brownie deception
The most important ingredient in the Minimalist Baker's vegan black bean brownies is deception. Because while they appear and taste as brownies should, disclosing that a can of black beans instead of flour is thae main building block is likely to result in a shot of crazy eyes and furrowed brows directed at you, kind baker. Nonbeliever eaters will psychologically change the chocolate flavor into a bowl of chili before even biting into one, but the truth is, there is no bean taste detectable in these brownies. Using beans for sweets is nothing new: Think of all the gluten-free baked goods that use some kind of bean flour as their base, as well as Japanese red-bean-paste treats (the red-bean-filled mochi covered in sesame seeds at Oto's Marketplace at 4990 Freeport Boulevard are great, although, those do taste a little beany).
