    I beg to differ…THIS recipe calls for using a brownie mix which is high in sugar, has wheat, etc. This defeats the purpose of trying to use the beans to make it more healthy. If someone has sensitivity to wheat, gluten, or any yeast growth promoting agent such as WHITE sugar, then these WILL cause gastrointestinal distress. There are many websites that offer LOW GI & Gluten-free alternatives WITHOUT mixes and that use either Stevia or Agave as the sweetener instead of WHITE sugar or corn syrup of any kind (which also promote weight gain). NOOOO the beans do NOT promote gas…its the OTHER ingredients in the MIX! One must start from scratch.

    Hi Christine,
    Thanks for your comment about the Black Bean Brownie Recipe. You are right about the ingredients in the brownie mixes, as I noted in my original post. Obviously many people use commercial brownie mixes, so using Black Beans (instead of the oil and eggs) is a way make them healthier and lower in fat. Black beans are a great source of healthy protein, dietary fiber and folate. They are also a good source of manganese, magnesium, thiamin (vitamin B1), phosphorus, tryptophan, zinc, niacin, and iron. For people using box mixes, this is a much healthier alternative.

    I have tried many of the other Black Bean Brownie recipes on other sites (and many variations of them). Most of them are just not that good. I am trying to develop a truly healthy brownie recipe with no wheat, gluten, sugar, artificial sweeteners, oil, or eggs. As you can imagine, this has not been an easy endeavor. I have used combinations of numerous gluten free baking alternatives, black beans, northern beans, white beans, stevia, xylitol, zucchini, pure cocoa, pure vanilla, etc. Keep checking back, and you will be the first to know as soon as I come up with a healthy Perfect Black Bean Brownie Recipe!
