Yes, you are reading the ingredients list correctly: there are black beans in these brownies. You really have to taste the brownies to believe them. The beans add moisture and texture -- not to mention fiber and protein. These brownies have such a great fudgy texture because the cocoa powder, and just a little espresso powder, are the only dry ingredients (besides a bit of Truvia). For an extra jolt of chocolate flavor and about 15 more calories, stir 1/4 cup dark chocolate-covered cacao nibs (such as Kopali Organics) into the batter just before pouring it into the pan. These brownies are even better the next day.<br/> <br/> Recipe courtesy of <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0345520904/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=aolfood-20&linkCode=as2&camp=217145&creative=399369&creativeASIN=0345520904"><em>Now Eat This!: 150 of America's Favorite Comfort Foods, All Under 350 Calories</em></a> by Rocco DiSpirito/Ballantine Books, 2010.
