    Looks delicious! I’ve heard of black bean brownies before, but always been a bit skeptical…I may just have to give it a try now. Do you use canned black beans?

      These are so tasty… you wouldn’t even know there are black beans in there. I cooked my own beans, but you can use canned and drain them off 🙂

    I came across your recipes recently and have a question to this one: can you use kidney beans instead of black beans or would that change the taste?
    Thanks in advance!

      Hi, I don’t think kidney beans will work. They have a different taste and color.

    Hi Anja, I made these yesterday and they are delicious! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Just a note to anyone out there who hasn’t got a food processor. I made mine by hand. I mashed the beans while they were still warm and then added all the other ingredients. It was surprisingly easy to achieve a ‘batter-like’ texture. They were a little more rustic than yours Anja, but still super tasty!
    I look forward to each new recipe…thank you! XX

    What kind of oats? Steel cut oats?
