I recently found I have to be gluten free, & largely avoid sugar, soy, & dairy, so am always looking for recipes I can make that meet my new restrictions AND still taste delicious. I say this is a winner! Didn't change anything. Simple, easy, moist, yummy! And dare I say, almost healthy for you! (Shh! Don't tell my husband!) Thank you for a delicious, healthy dessert recipe I will be adding to my new "regulars". Read More

Was curious so tried it... would say if you're gluten free and need an option I'm sure this is amazing, but... if you can have the real thing you can tell the difference. I can taste the beans, not bad, but different. Overall my kids and I had one serving and decided to pass on the rest (which would NEVER happen with a pan of traditional brownies) If you're curious I'd say give it a try... it's easy enough ad you might just like it.

They turned out nice and moist and stayed so even after they cooled down. I added a splash of vanilla extract and puréed in a NutriBullet. My husband ate them without even blinking and said he could taste the coffee I added (about 1 level tbsp). Hahaha. I'll break it to him soon that he had a portion of beans. Or, maybe not. Will definitely make these again! Read More

I've made this using canola oil in place of coconut oil. They came out really nice but more cake-like than I prefer in a brownie. But really it's the taste that matters. Hide the empty cans and no one will know. I sprung them on my nephew who will not eat any beans at all (it's a texture thing) and he loved them. I did 'fess up and he didn't believe me until I showed him the cans. They're not quite as good as Outback's Chocolate Thunder From Down Under (google the recipe) but they're darn good. And the beans bring added protein and fiber a good thing. Read More

These are seriously awesome! I left out the chocolate bar and added a tablespoon of espresso instant coffee. I cut them into small portions and wrap in Saran Wrap and freeze. Perfect healthy little snack. Read More

I loved them! They did not taste exactly like brownies but I substituted with Paleo friendly chocolate chips. It was more chocolate tasting and very moist. I really enjoyed them the richness allowed each one to be more satisfying. Next time I m going to try adding walnuts for a little extra crunch. The best part was how easy it was to make. I would definitely make these for other people. Read More
