Brownies (with Black Beans and Oats)

I've been hearing a lot about black bean brownies lately, so I decided to try my hand at it. You can find the recipe I used here.
This was a really simple recipe. I used a dash of honey instead of stevia (who has stevia!) and added walnuts for some crunch. I also used a blender, as I don't have a food processor.
Overall, I must say that I am impressed by this recipe. The brownies taste chocolate-y and sweet! I still think classic brownies with peanut butter icing will never be beat. But I do like that you get the added nutrition of black beans and oats in a deceptively sweet treat!
This recipe is a win-win.

 Kind of grew up all over. Kind of love travelling, art, books, music, loving people, tea, food from different cultures, grace, the beautiful world God has made. I enjoy all things creative. Check out Elephants are People (http://godisnotanelephant.blogspot.ca/) for my reflections on life, faith, art, and hope. Figs and Ginger (http://sheeatsfigsandginger.blogspot.ca/) is about healthy living, hope (a general theme!), and recovery.  In the mean time, if you'd like to hear do something else I love- check out http://elephantandgirl.bandcamp.com/. I'd love to hear from you!
