Happy Easter and long weekend! I had some extra time to bake this weekend, so I made some black bean brownies with my new kitchen aid mixer as well as the banana chocolate chip protein bars featured in my Baking with Protein post.
This is yet another recipe from Amanda Bucci – her original recipe is found on her YouTube channel here. In her recipe, she uses stevia to sweeten the batter, but I used honey instead. Originally I made them with only 3/4 tbsp of honey, but this makes them NOT that sweet at all – if you want them to take more brownie-sque and sweeter, definitely use more the honey!
